Thinking about the nature of the
problem and solving it
Robot Engineer / Tajima Ryosuke
What is the pursuit of essence?
When you try to do something that no one has ever done before, no one can know the right answer. While considering the essence of the problem, we have to think about what the problem is and whether it is useful, and then pursue and solve it.
What is the essential pursuit as a “robot” engineer?
Using a robot is an attempt to solve a physical problem, so you should consider what kind of control system to use after identifying the physical phenomenon. When you have something you want to do and think about how to achieve it, there are many ways to do it. While there are various opinions, it is very important to understand the essential problem and solve it.
“TechMagic develops various types of robots that highly integrate both hardware and software technologies in order to solve manpower shortages and low-productivity cost structures faced by many companies in the food industry, and to provide people with food surprises and excitement through the creation of new food experiences.
1. to solve manpower shortage and improve high-cost structure
The food industry is facing a labor shortage due to social structural factors such as a declining population caused by a declining birthrate. Compared to other industries, the food industry has a high vacancy and turnover rate, and it is not uncommon for workers to be overworked. TechMagic contributes to solving these issues by automating a series of cooking processes and simple tasks with robots, stabilizing taste quality through data visualization, and optimizing purchasing and inventory.
2. creation of new dining experiences
As food-related needs continue to diversify, such as diversifying tastes, dietary restrictions due to lifestyle-related diseases, and food allergies, TechMagic’s robots can accumulate a vast amount of cooking information, ingredients related to orders, customer information, and other information to create personalized dining experiences for each and every customer. TechMagic will create food services that provide new value, such as personalized dining experiences tailored to each individual.
Currently, we are developing products specialized for major restaurant chains, food production, and processing manufacturers, but we plan to expand our business to the global food service industry through the development of versatile products. We are looking forward to working with you to create the next generation of the food service industry by digitally transforming the food service industry, which has never changed, and reforming the long-standing issues of labor shortages and cost structure.”
