A truly smart coffee machine adapts to every cup Intelligent coffee service thanks to WMF Cup Sensor05/08/2020
Available as an option with the fully automatic coffee machines WMF 5000 S+ and WMF 1500 S+ the Cup Sensor recognises the cup placed on the drip tray, moving the automatic spout to precisely the right distance above it. The machine can even preselect specific beverages or sizes based on the cup used, eliminating the need for manual selection and minimising the risk of overfilling or damaging the cups. Moreover, no beverage will be dispensed without a cup, so waste and cleaning are reduced. Customers enjoy smooth service, and maximum operational efficiency.
With the Cup Sensor of WMF every drink travels the shortest distance to the cup, so it is served at the perfect temperature and in best quality. The sophisticated feature can be used in various ways, depending on the customers needs. In one mode, the selected beverage will only be served if the sensor detects a cup is in place – very handy in self-service venues. In a second mode, the machine detects the cup and then automatically adjusts the spout to the correct distance from the top of it – ideal for venues where the same beverage is dispensed into many different-sized cups, like offices. In the third mode, the sensor recognises the height of the cup being used and consequently the display menu only shows beverages corresponding to that size of cup. In this mode, the spout moves automatically to the optimal height for each recipe, saving time and effort.
