Workstation structure

To show industry 4.0 we create a coordinated production line. In this production line you can mix individual, specific and fancy drinks for your customers. For producing these drinks three to four several working steps are consecutively realized. How many working stations you need depents on your option to produce drinks with or without alcohol. 

You also need one intermediate store for the drinks which have not yet processed and which are finished. This store can be placed in the middle of the three/four workstations.

One working station is for the juice, one for the puree and one for the fruit pieces. The fourth station for alcohol is selectable. The stations are build up like this:
