A novel food safety system focusses on bottling for micro enterprises

Angélica Quito, Alexander Tirira, Alexis Rivera


This article delves into the critical role of experiential learning in advancing the food industry, particularly addressing the complex challenges inherent in food production processes. In response to these challenges, the studio presents an innovative project focused on the creation of a training module designed to simulate the cleaning process of 600 ml Dasani bottles. The development of this machine involved an exhaustive exploration of the complexities of the design and dimensional specifications, drawing on principles from the interdisciplinary field of mechatronics.
