2019 is already here and with it, we’re sure we will start seeing many changes in the restaurant and retail industries. as robots continue to automate processes, today we present you with a machine that has been around the world for some time already that automates a traditional japanese handcrafted specialty: sushi. developed by suzumo, the sushirobo is a reliable and extremely consistent robot that can aid sushi makers around the world to craft their food in a surprisingly fast and accurate way.




located in brooklyn, BigEye sushi has implemented the use of machines that help its employees to make sushi in a faster and more convenient way. the fast-casual food joint, ran by rick horiike, gets assistance from the machines, accelerating the production process to approximately 300 sushi and 400 rolls per hour. the restaurant continues to use people to slice the fish by hand while the machines are responsible for putting together the sushi pieces and rolls once the ingredients are humanly selected.

the SVR-NXA roll sushi robot by suzumo can memorize three different kinds of rolls. the rice length, thickness and even density of the rice can be adjusted while rice sheets can be supplied continuously without the rolling process. when needed, a re-roll up function is available to make rolls tighter. featuring a convenient LCD touch panel, the machine is as international as it can be by supporting seven different languages which include english, spanish, french, german, korean, chinese and japanese. last but not least, it is easy to operate and to clean.
