Bosch stated that the packaging robot will be fully functional on the "Taste Success - A Future in Food" stand at the event, showcasing its speed and efficiency as it picks and places chocolate bars.

The demonstration will give visitors insight to visitors into the robot's ability to pick and place small but quick moving products at a speed of over 150 cycles per minute.

The event will also demonstrate the role of speed and accuracy of automation to the food manufacturing industry, Bosch added.

Bosch Packaging Technology robotics product manager Roy Fraser said, "As a partner to many manufacturers, we recognize the value that young people bring to the manufacturing industry, with their creativity helping the development of new products and services."

The Big Bang Fair is the celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths in the UK and is expected to welcome over 65,000 young Britons.

Bosch Packaging Technology division, headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, is a supplier of process and packaging technology, develops and produces complete solutions for the pharmaceuticals, food, and confectionery industries. It employs 5,000 people.
