Murre Technologies, a Dutch company that supplies food-processing equipment around the globe, has developed industrial machines that automate cutting, peeling, dipping and sorting fruits, vegetables, seaweed and seafood.
For example, there is the installation that cuts and core fresh apples into perfect little wedges.
As reported by au.sports.yahoo.com, the apples are fed into the machine in rows of eight. Then a robot claw lifts the apples from each row and transports the fruits into the coring section. The cores are removed, then the machine stamps the apples into sliced sections.
