Vision Systems for Food Quality Inspection

Learn More About Vision Inspection Technology
How Does Vision Inspection Work?

In a food production facility, a vision system employs high-resolution cameras and sensors to capture images of food products, utilizing advanced image processing techniques and machine learning algorithms to analyze characteristics such as color, size, shape, and defects. The system makes real-time decisions based on predetermined quality standards, automating actions such as sorting acceptable products and diverting or rejecting those that do not meet criteria. Integrated with the production line's control system, the vision system facilitates seamless communication and continuous improvement through a feedback loop, ensuring efficient quality control, waste reduction, and compliance with regulatory standards in the dynamic environment of food manufacturing.

KPM's vision inspection system lineup includes lab & at-line systems, over-line systems and in-line systems. The over-line and in-line machine vision systems are customizable to the products you produce and can be fitted to your production line for exceptional food quality inspection.
