Whether in offices, hotels, restaurants, or coffee shops, fully automatic commercial coffee machines play a crucial role. They not only enhance the efficiency of employees but also allow customers to effortlessly enjoy the deliciousness of coffee. Furthermore, the introduction of smart technologies, such as human-machine interaction systems and preset coffee recipes, enables the adjustment of parameters like coffee strength and temperature based on individual tastes and preferences, providing a diverse range of coffee choices in a short time. From classic Americano to intricate latte art, these machines offer personalized coffee experiences to users. This innovation significantly accelerates the commercialization of freshly ground coffee, making the optimization of these machines' performance and customer experience crucial for enhancing the attractiveness of coffee shops and the efficiency of businesses. This article aims to assist coffee machine manufacturers in improving the efficiency, stability, and user convenience of their products.

The milk pump in coffee machines, as a critical component, plays a vital role in the performance of the coffee machine and the user's experience. Its primary function is to extract milk beverages, such as milk and coconut milk, from containers to create rich and delicate milk foam. Therefore, the coffee machine milk pump holds significant importance in enhancing the user experience of fully automatic coffee machines and diversifying coffee choices.

Market Pain Points and Solutions
1.Foam Temperature Issue:
Issue: In the Chinese coffee market, optimizing the "milk coffee" experience is crucial for success. Major coffee machine brands focus on “frothing”, with the core being to ensure the temperature and density of the milk foam. Traditional venturi tubes cannot pump cold milk, limiting the ability of coffee shops and businesses to adjust based on different coffee types or individual customer preferences.
Solution: The diversity of froth temperatures and maintaining their stability is fundamental to creating an outstanding milk coffee experience. TOPSFLO Coffee Machine Milk Pump TG01 can pump cold milk, producing iced lattes and iced cappuccinos, allowing users to customize their coffee experience to meet personal preferences. Providing users with the freedom of a personalized coffee experience satisfies diverse customer preferences, injecting more flexibility into coffee culture.

2.Inconsistent Milk Frothing Issue:
Issue: Different milk pumps have distinct performance characteristics, and the pump's performance can impact the density of milk foam.
Solution: To achieve optimal milk foam quality, it is necessary to adjust and coordinate the performance of the milk pump, frothing device, and other relevant components. Design parameters of the milk pump, such as pumping speed and pressure, directly affect the entry and injection of milk into the frothing device. Moderate speed and pressure contribute to the creation of fine milk foam. Milk pumps from different manufacturers may employ varying designs and technologies. The TOPSFLO coffee machine milk gear pump TG01 features a more intelligent control system, allowing adjustment of the pumping speed according to the desired frothing quality, ensuring consistent froth quality.

3.Maintaining Hygiene Standards:
Issue: In commercial environments, especially in high-frequency usage settings, the residual milk or other dairy-based beverages in the pump may lead to bacterial growth, causing hygiene issues.

Solution: The TOPSFLO coffee machine milk pump TG01 is made from materials that comply with NSF and FDA standards. Its simple internal structure is designed to minimize the risk of milk residue accumulation. Coupled with the coffee machine's unattended self-cleaning system, it is easy to clean and maintain.

4.Electromagnetic Compatibility Challenges

Issue: The electronic components and milk pump in automatic coffee machines may generate electromagnetic radiation, causing interference with other electronic devices. Ensuring the electromagnetic compatibility of the milk pump to prevent interference with surrounding electronic devices is a significant challenge. Additionally, ensuring the seamless integration of the milk pump's electronic control system with the overall control system of the coffee machine poses a technical challenge.

Solution: To address electromagnetic compatibility issues, the TOPSFLO direct-drive DC micro-gear milk pump TG01 motor design takes into account European electrical electromagnetic compatibility standards. This ensures that the coffee machine is designed in compliance with EMC standards and regulatory requirements. Through compliance certification, the equipment will not cause interference with other electronic devices during use, ensuring stable operation and seamless integration.
Furthermore, in the electronic design of the coffee machine, to further reduce the risk of electromagnetic interference, coffee machine manufacturers should attempt to keep the milk pump away from other sensitive devices, especially those sensitive to electromagnetic interference. By arranging the layout of the equipment reasonably, the spread of electromagnetic radiation can be minimized.

5.Operation noise issue:
Issue: Research on enhancing environmental experiences indicates that customers in coffee shops often express dissatisfaction with the noisy operation of machines, impacting their overall experience in the coffee shop. The noisy operation of water pumps is a key factor affecting the environment, disrupting the ambiance of coffee shops and businesses, diminishing the relaxed and enjoyable feelings when savoring coffee, and influencing the overall customer experience.
Solution: Opting for a milk pump equipped with advanced noise reduction technology is a wise choice. The TOPSFLO coffee machine milk pump TG01 adopts optimized gear design and manufacturing processes to reduce vibration and noise during gear engagement. It ensures proper lubrication of the pump's mechanical components, minimizing noise caused by friction. Additionally, in the structural design of the coffee machine, resonance between the pump body and surrounding structures can be a source of noise. TG01 addresses this by strengthening the pump body structure, effectively preventing resonance and vibration propagation.
