Mobile Cooking System

Project description

The follow-up system for a mobile hotplate makes cooking and baking a piece of cake. The hotplate communicates wirelessly with the pot to automatically set the right temperature and perfect cooking time. And that’s not all: if you turn the mobile hotplate over and set it on top of a pot, you can also use it to bake and gratinate dishes. Helbling developed this smart stove system up to the prototype stage, while also meeting the customer’s requirement that manufacturing costs be cut in half.

Added functionality at lower manufacturing costs: this was the combined challenge of an order placed with Helbling Technik by a global market leader in the area of premium stainless steel cooking systems. The new generation of a mobile hotplate was to use fully automatic, radio-controlled programs for self-monitoring during cooking and baking, yet only cost half as much to manufacture. To solve this task, Helbling was able to draw on its broad experience in the development of household appliances and mechatronic systems.
