Distributed Vision-Based Process Control Systems

KPM Analytics provides a range of vision system modules designed to monitor a specific production process step.

The measurements taken at each vision module at each point in the line can be collected and displayed at the control station and reported in real time. This data can also be added to a database allowing further analysis and correlation of this data to assist in improving the production process and the quality of the finished product.

Examples of process steps that can be monitored are the following:

  • Forming (physical dimensions)
  • Proofing (height, scoring)
  • Baking (bake color, oven feedback)
  • Topping (seeding)

Vision Robot Guidance – Vision Controlled Scoring

KPM Analytics Inspection Solutions can also be integrated into a specific robot guidance application. We can work in partnership with your qualified robot system integrator in order to provide a complete solution based on our state of the art vision inspection technology. This allows a customer to get KPM Analytics vision inspection (and advanced data analysis and reporting) as well as robot guidance, using just one vision module.

In the following video, the Vision System measures and keeps continuously monitored the complete height profile of the products, through 3D inspection. This information is transferred in real time to the automatic robot scoring system, allowing to adjust the blades height in order to obtain a constant scoring depth on the products.
