May 16, 2018

From  the perspective of the development trend of self-service coffee  machines, the emergence of self-service coffee machines is the result of  the shift from labor-intensive industrial structures to  technology-intensive ones. Changes  in mass production, mass consumption, consumption patterns, and sales  environment require new distribution channels; while the relative costs  of new distribution channels such as supermarkets and department stores  are rising, labor costs are also rising; plus the limitations of the  venues As well as the convenience of shopping and other factors, self-service coffee machines have emerged as a necessary machine.
  Self-service  coffee machines are, in a broad sense, machines that can sell goods  after using WeChat, Alipay, etc. In a narrow sense, they are machines  that automatically sell goods. From  the perspective of supply conditions, self-service coffee makers can  fully supplement the shortage of human resources, adapt to changes in  the consumption environment and consumption patterns, and 24-hour  unmanned sales systems can be more labor-saving. The capital needed for  operations is small and the area is small. The ability to attract people to buy curiosity can well solve various problems such as rising labor costs.
     It  is said that the world’s first self-service coffee vending machine  appeared in the 3rd century BC, a coin-operated holy water dispenser in  the Egyptian temple. In the 17th century, British pubs had cigarette vending machines and self-service coffee machines. In  the long history of vending machines and self-service coffee machines,  Japan has developed a practical vending machine, which is after entering  this century. Japan's  first automatic vending machine and self-service vending machine was  the stamp postal card vending machine that was introduced in 1904. It is  a machine that combines the sale of postage stamps and the posting of  post boxes. The real popularity of vending machines and self-service coffee machines was after World War II. In the 1950s, the "water-jet juice vending machine" was very popular and the juice was poured into paper cups for sale. Later,  as the major beverage companies in the United States entered the  Japanese market, in 1962, there was a revolution in the circulation  field with vending machines and self-service vending coffee machines as  the main body. In 1967, all currencies below 100 yen were changed to coins, which promoted the development of the vending machine industry.


      Now,  the vending machines and self-service vending coffee machine industry  are moving toward informatization and further rationalization. For  example, the online method is implemented, and the inventory  information in the automatic vending machine is transmitted to the  computers of each business office via the telephone line in a timely  manner, thereby ensuring the smooth delivery of the products, the  replenishment, and the selection of the products. In  addition, in order to prevent global warming, the development of  automatic vending machines and self-service vending coffee machines is  dedicated to energy saving, and energy-saving soft drinks vending  machines have become mainstream in the industry. At  the peak of power consumption in summer, this type of vending machine  can keep the temperature low even when the cooler is turned off, and it  can save 10-15% of power compared with the conventional vending  machines. In  the 21st century, vending machines will further develop in the  direction of saving resources and energy as well as high functionality.
