Suzumo has shaken up the conventional wisdom in the world of sushi.
Suzumo Presented Labor Saving Sushi Robots
Suzumo Kiko, a sushi robot manufacturer and rice processing machine company, held the “Suzumo Fair 2023 Tokyo” on April 18th and 19th, 2023 in Tokyo.
At the fair, Suzumo proposed ways to save labor and improve work efficiency by using Suzumo Kiko's products. Suzumo exhibited next-generation store creation through collaboration between PLEN Robotics, a service robot, and UGO, a business DX robot, showing that the future labor-saving store can be realized by having robots perform everything from reception to seating, guidance, cooking, serving and accounting.

The latest sushi robot S-Cube attracted the most attention at this year's fair. So far, Suzumo Machinery has developed robots for large-scale sushi restaurants, but S-Cube is expected to be introduced to smaller restaurants. It weighs 15kg and is compact and easy to store, it also has a design that makes it look cool even if the kitchen is visible from thecustomers. Still under development, the S-Cube is going to be released next year, and overseas expansion is also being considered.
With Suzumo machines there is no need for intensive training or specialized chefs.
The SVS-FCA for manufacturing rice sheets is a popular robot in Europe and overseas. Overseas, the demand for sushi rolls is higher than for nigiri sushi, and this product, which can make flat rice sheets at regular intervals, is highly valued. SVS-FCA can make two rice sheets at the same time, and it can be set so that when two sheets are taken, the next sheet is automatically made.

GST-RRA, the latest model of the rice serving robot Fuwarica, is equipped with a display on the top of the machine and features a stylish exterior. The hopper can hold a large amount of rice, about 3.3 liters, and has excellent heat retention, making it possible to provide rice that looks like it is freshly cooked. In addition, the LED light emitted on the front of the robot changes color from blue to yellow and yellow to red depending on the amount of rice remaining, making it easy to check even from a distance. Since it is designed not to operate unless a container is placed, it can be expected to be useful in hotel buffets.

Another selling point is the newly developed granulated sheet that provides a delicious texture.
