Grinds out subs in 15 seconds

DRACUT, Mass: (AP) - If you yearn.
for submarine sandwiches, but don't
like venturing into your local greasy
spoon, Robert Hanson may have
something for you: a computerized
sandwich - measured, weighed, and
built without the touch of human hands.
Hanson is. working on a prototype of a
machine that he says will put together
those long snadwiches - called
variously submarines or grinders, poor
boys, or heroes. And the gizmo will
respond to such gastronomic subtleties
as whether or not the diner wants mayo
or green peppers.
"All you have to do is press one but-
ton to get the meat, another for pickles,
and so forth, and so on," he said.

T HE ADVANTAGE of turning out
sandwiches with computers instead of
people is time - 15 seconds per san-
dwich - and economics, Hanson says.
The computerized shops he envisions
will be small and employ only one per-
son, whose duties will be pretty much
restricted to taking the money. And he
says the operation can.be rigged so the
machine won't put together a sandwich
unless it's already paid for, thus
eliminating free handouts by overly
generous human sandwich makers.
"They will look a lot like those
Fotomat booths you see in shopping
plazas everywhere. You will drive up,
place your order, and whoosh, you've
got your sub. It's as simple as that."


HANSON SAYS the parts for his
prototype machine have been made,
and soon he will start assembling the
apparatus. If all goes well, he hopes to
open his first shop in Reading, a Boston
suburb, in two years.
Hanson is a production supervisor at
Compugraphic Corp., which makes
computerized typesetting equipment.
He says he plans to apply for a patent
on his sandwich maker, which he has
dubbed "Sub-o-matic."
Hanson said the machines will sell for
about $2,500 each. A single machine will
make one kind of sandwich, and he ex-
pects that typical shops will hold about
a dozen of them, all'tied into a single
