ANKO Team Research Problem Solving or Solution Delivery

ANKO modified the Tortilla folding mechanism to ensure Burritos are perfectly wrapped.

During machine testing, ANKO discovered that a client's Burrito recipe used thicker Tortillas, which made it difficult for the machine's folding mechanism to hold them in place. The thick Tortillas lead to subsequent rolling and wrapping issues, resulting in unevenly wrapped Burritos or filling leaks. To address the consequences, ANKO's engineering team modified the folding mechanism to successfully form Burritos... (Contact ANKO for more information)

Burrito comes in different kinds of stuffing such as rice, cheese, beans, meat, and vegetables. How much moisture the stuffing contains may have an impact on the operation of stuffing system. Therefore, depending on the characteristics of burrito stuffing, the stuffing device will be equipped with a proper driven system that helps the device deposit stuffing on tortillas smoothly. The current stuffing device is operated by pneumatic power. We can also replace the standard air cylinder with high-pressure air cylinder or electric power driven system.

Food Culture

A Burrito is an authentic Mexican dish, similar to a Taco, but all the ingredients and sauces are wrapped in the Tortilla. Traditional Burritos are filled with meat, rice, and beans to form a reasonably sized roll. However, when Burritos made their way to the United States, the amount of filling increased, as did the size of the Tortilla, and a larger Burrito became commonplace. Fillings in American Burritos often include meats, lettuce, avocados, onions, tomatoes, cheese, yogurt, salsas, and more. For example, a well-known American fast-food chain specializing in Mexican cuisine offers over 50 different fresh ingredients for customers to build their own Burritos. This company has established thousands of franchised locations worldwide, generating impressive revenue in the marketplace. Frozen Burritos are created to provide even more convenience for consumers. They are generally sold at different stores and supermarkets; they can be easily microwaved and served as breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Recently, many meatless Burritos have gained popularity with an increasing number of vegan and vegetarian consumers. Their main ingredients include vegetables, vegan cheeses, and vegan sour cream. Often accompanied by black beans, corn, avocados, and rice, this type of Burrito provides a lower-calorie and satisfying option.
