Applications

Measure Quality Where It Matters

Typical Applications Include:

  • Measurement of physical product attributes such as shape, size and color of baked goods, meat, poultry, cheese, eggs, fruit, vegetables and pet food to detect quality issues
  • Identification and rejection of non-conforming products from the production flow
  • Detection of foreign objects
  • Generate production metrics (item counts, uptime, throughput, etc.)

Finished Product Examples:

  • Bread Products (loaves, baguettes, buns, bagels, english muffins, croissants, muffins, etc)
  • Cookies, crackers, biscuits
  • Frozen pizza and pizza bases
  • Snack Foods (snack bars, pretzels, potato chips, French fries, desserts, chocolates, candies, chewing gum, etc)
  • Cheese Products (blocks, snack pieces, wax covered, etc)
  • Meat and Poultry (Raw, breaded, grilled, patties, etc)

How It Works

Real-Time Analysis, Inspection, & Statistical Control

In-Line vision inspection systems, also known as machine vision systems, use a selection of high-speed cameras, a laser, and imaging software to detect and measure objects as they move along the included conveyor belt.

To begin inspecting, start the vision system when production of a particular product begins. Simply select the product profile and tap on Start.  

If desired, make needed specification adjustments before you tap start, either on the included operator interface, or with any PC connected to the same network. The system will do the rest. Any non-conforming products can be ejected from the line or recirculated to an alternate processing stream.

Product profiles are easy to adjust or create using the measura® Toolbox module (included). All you need to do is enter your specifications and save. Next time you load the profile, your changes are applied.

Our proprietary measura® software suite and measurement algorithms can determine the size, shape, color, or composite measurement of any object and convert this information into standard units for quality control purposes. Results are displayed in real-time and data for every object is saved for future analysis and reporting.

These measurements can then be used to provide real-time operator feedback and to ensure compliance with product specifications. All measurements can be viewed by operators in a variety of graphical and numerical formats. Product measurement data and raw images can also be stored automatically for future review and historical reporting.

Defect Detection and Rejection

Measurements for each object can be used to detect size, shape or color-based defects. Every defect is categorized and tracked using a user-defined name so that operators can quickly understand the source of any problems. Defective products can be automatically rejected from the product flow using an array of high-speed air jets that precisely remove the individual defective object.

Easy to Install, Operate and Maintain

The small footprint and integrated, adjustable stand can fit into tight spaces with minimal modifications to existing conveyors, and no laning or spreading conveyors are required upstream of the system. To ensure longevity and easy maintenance, all of the components of the system are standard, off-the-shelf parts that are available from multiple suppliers, and no proprietary components are used in the system.

Customizable Solutions

With a highly skilled in-house engineering team, KPM Analytics has the experience and capability to design a specific customized solution to meet your inspection requirements. Customized designs, small mechanical footprints and special imaging techniques are all available, and additional conveyors before or after the system can be added to make the overall solution a perfect fit.

System Components

Solutions Designed Around Your Products

The In-Line Inspection Systems are the most customizable of the Vision Solutions from KPM Analytics. Our specialists will work with you to evaluate your requirements as well as your facility to design a system that meets all of your needs.

In-Line systems are available in multiple widths and can be installed at various points in the line. Multiple camera options are available to accommodate almost any application and the system can be configured for a 360-degree inspection of your products.

Laning Conveyor Option

After products are fully inspected, and defective objects are rejected from the line, a bespoke Laning System can organize the random flow of good products into an organized, laned arrangement that is suitable for downstream packaging equipment. Laning systems can have anywhere from 1 to 10 lanes, and can be managed (i.e. equal counts in each lane) or unmanaged.

Measurements

Using vision technology, your products are characterized in meaningful ways, including complex details that are difficult and time-consuming with traditional manual methods. Our standard measurements library consists of over 100 basic and advanced algorithms and growing.

An Example of the Measurements Applied to a Cookies Production Line

Basic Measurements

  • Area, shape, color
  • Length and width
  • Bottom inspection (optional)
  • Diameters (min, max, avg, caliper, adaptive dimensions)
  • Item counts
  • Volume and slopes
  • Heights/thickness (min, max, avg, center, edge)
  • Cross-reference 2D/3D measurements with image stacking
  • Foreign object detection

Advanced Measurements

  • Package Inspection (top & bottom, label, bar codes, seal)
  • Template match (area match %, area outside of template %, max length outside template)
  • Adaptive length & width (curve follow)
  • Shine detection
  • Roughness (variations on edges)
  • Smart thickness
  • Bun coverage
  • Blob measurements - Find & measure specific features on an object (e.g. toppings, splits, foreign materials)

Production & Productivity Data

Measuring 100% of all products also provides a wealth of key ‘real-time’ production and productivity data such as:

  • Throughput and Capacity%
  • Defect % and Out-Of-Spec % (by type)
  • Uptime/Downtime %
  • Changeover Time
