Product Overview

Simple, Objective Measurement Solution for Bakeries

TheiaVu® E-Series is an offline vision system that provides objective measurements to ensure product consistency and quality. Simply place the product on the moving conveyor and product attributes can be measured objectively and consistently with minimal operator intervention. The system can be set up to inspect a range of products based on the product size and height, including cookies, buns, bread, pretzels, muffins, etc.

TheiaVu® E-Series is simple to use and replaces manual measurement and data collection. With this single tool, you can collect color, height, diameter, and many other measurement features for your product. Additionally, the data can be used with online vision systems to set and verify product specifications.

Features

Powerful: Quantify product features difficult to measure manually.
Simple: Easy-to-use operator interface.
Versatile: Can be used in lab or production areas. Washdown version available.
Flexible: Validate product features and collect measurements at various stages of development.

Benefits

  • Perform quality checks faster and with better repeatability
  • Know more about your product compared to manual methods
  • Ensure consistent product quality  between batches, shifts, and sites
  • Cost savings through reduced labor and waste
  • Brand protection
  • Save time with reporting, all results are saved & organized
  • Achieve competitive advantages

Applications

Used in the lab or at-line in your bakery, TheiaVu® E-Series systems produce critical measurement data for pre-baked doughs, production samples and final products for quality and process control.

MEASURING QUALITY WHERE IT MATTERS

Pre-Bake: Inspect dough before baking to define key attributes.

R&D: Objectively profile new products to define product specification. Compare and contrast different recipes for products to optimize product quality.

Detailed Feature Measurements: Obtain objective data to help determine the repeatability tolerances of your production process.

Quality Control: Before packaging, inspect final products for quality control.

How It Works

TheiaVu® vision systems use a selection of high-speed cameras, a laser, and imaging software to detect and measure objects as they move along the built-in conveyor belt.

Compact Machine Vision for Quality Control

Our proprietary BakeSpect™ software 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.

To Inspect a Product:
  1. Power on the system
  2. Select the desired product model using built-in operator interface
  3. Place the object on the moving conveyor belt
  4. Instantly view the results on-screen

You can continuously feed multiples of the same product onto the belt without resetting the system and all data will be saved. There is no need for manual note taking or spreadsheets.

Product-Based Specification "Models"

Vision-based quality control systems recognize and analyze many attributes simultaneously for each product that passes under the system. These attributes, such as size, shape, and color, for example, are inspected for any deviations from your established quality specifications and, if a product doesn’t meet those criteria, rules are engaged to instruct the system how to handle that product. This is what we refer to as the Product Model, and it is the information from the model that enables the automated inspection process. A product model is created for each type of product (e.g. glazed bun, baguette, donut, etc.) you want to measure.

Automate Production Sampling
  • Measure products from one or multiple lines in a facility
  • Product is put on conveyor and measurements are automatically collected
  • Measurements are consistent and independent of operators skill level (compared to training an operator to use a calliper or colorimeter)
  • Quicker collection of data
Measure and Profile New Products
  • Objective measurements
  • Images of products can be saved
  • Data can be collected and statistics calculated and reported
  • Measurements can be collected for baked and unbaked products and data correlated
