SUNNYVALE, Calif.– Sept. 13, 2023 – LBX Food Robotics, the leader in hot food vending, today announced that its Bake Xpress hot food kiosk is the first full-menu hot food vending machine to meet the stringent requirements for full Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) certification for US markets and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) certification for Canadian locations. With testing completed by TÜV Rhineland, Bake Xpress is guaranteed to meet internationally-recognized performance, safety and reliability standards. While the machine’s components are all individually certified, some locations such as government facilities, transportation hubs and hospitals
“Our focus on quality sets us apart, from the high-end foods Bake Xpress delivers down to the components we designed into our machine. This has been true since our initial design phase and is well-validated by the four years that Bake Xpress machines have been in continuous operation,” said Benoit Herve, Founder and CEO of LBX Food Robotics. “Receiving UL and CSA certification is an important milestone for LBX that will allow us to serve thousands of new high-volume locations.” Mr. Herve added that the company also is anticipating full CE certification for European markets this month, as required for all electronic equipment deployed within the European Union.
The smart oven inside Bake Xpress uses a combination of infrared, convection, and microwave to bake a full menu of meals, pastries and hearty snacks on demand. Because Bake Xpress actually bakes food, it is uniquely able to deliver restaurant-quality results such as pizza with crispy crusts and even heating and browning, pastries, pasta, sandwiches and more. LBX customers can choose to fully customize the machine and menu to extend their brand, leverage existing contracts and optimize the end user experience.
