Cameras for Food Applications
Our cameras make sure you deliver constant quality, and help increase your overall yield.
In today's food industry, constant quality is of great importance. Recent developments in the field of computer vision have made it possible to evaluate product quality at a higher level. By using computer vision, anomalies and maturity can be visualized. The overall yield could be increased due to a reduced percentage of unnecessary disposals. Moreover, they help to maintain high efficiency in the production process, because trained inspectors for manual quality evaluation are no longer necessary. Quest's cameras are designed to meet the needs of all mainstream food and beverage applications and guarantee constant quality. Specific quality inspection software has to be designed to meet your specific needs. Among many other features, they offer High frame rate and High dynamic range.
- Fruit and Vegetables
Shape, size, colour, blemishes and diseases are important aspects when it comes to the market value of fruit and vegetables. The appearance influences consumer perceptions and therefore determines the rate of purchase. Quest's cameras can be deployed for the inspection and grading of fruit and vegetables.
- Meat and Fish
Computer vision has been widely used for quality evaluation of meat and fish. Textural features are for example a good indicator of beef tenderness, and image analyses can be used for classification of muscle type. Automatic fish sorting techniques using image analysis can reduce human inspection and thereby reduce costs.
Cereal quality requirements depend on the application such as varieties of bread, cakes, cookies and pasta products. The current visual classification procedure is demanding because of the wide variation in visual characteristics. By using machine vision, a fast and accurate grading system can be developed.
- Other Applications
Quality evaluation of other food products like pizza or cheese is possible with Quest's multispectral cameras used in machine vision applications. Many other food applications are possible.
