MooBella Ice Cream created a revolutionary machine that makes single servings of fresh, flavored-to-order ice cream in seconds.

Project Summary

Industry

Ice Cream

Location

MooBella Ice Cream Factory

Business Situation

MooBella Ice Cream Factory needed help designing an instantaneous aeration, flavoring and freezing machine for creating scoops of premium hard ice cream within seconds, and thereby eliminating the frozen supply chain.

Technical Situation

MooBella Ice Cream Factory needed help designing motion sense technology and communication systems for the next generation Ice Cream Factory.

Solution

Occam Technology Group performed firmware design and development of sensor, motion control, and communication (RS485/MODBUS) systems for the next generation Ice Cream Factory.

Benefits

We developed a system design and distributed sensor and motor controls including BLDC, microstepping, MODBUS, USB, digital I/O and thermometry.

Motor Control Development for the MooBella Ice Cream Machine 

MooBella Ice Creamery is a private company that creates ice cream machines, which was founded in 1992 and based in Massachusetts. MooBella has pioneered a revolution in ice cream-making: a machine that makes a single serving of fresh, flavored-to-order ice cream in about 45 seconds. These machines can be found all around the northern United States in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and New York.

Occam Technology Group helped MooBella Ice Creamery develop this revolutionary, disruptive technology that has the potential to transform and expand the nearly $60 billion ice cream industry. It enables instantaneous aeration, flavoring and freezing of ice cream into scoops of premium hard ice cream within seconds, and thereby eliminating the frozen supply chain. Hardware/firmware systems were designed, along with development of distributed sensor and motor controls. These motor controls included BLDC, microstepping, MODBUS, USB, digital I/O and thermometry for the next generation in Ice Cream Factory.
