Most people would not think much about the bread they buy at the grocery store, but for those who manufacture this staple food, quality control is of the utmost importance. KPM provides effective solutions for managing the whole process of producing buns and rolls for retail and food service businesses, prioritizing quality at each step so manufacturers face less surprise-related costs in comparison to manual or traditional methods.

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)

Feedback Loops – Oven Control

By installing a KPM Analytics Vision System at the oven exit, it is possible to integrate our exclusive Real-Time Oven Feedback Module, which uses the measured bake color to automatically adjust the oven settings.

Key benefits:

  • Fully automatic control of the last two zones of the oven
  • Objective bake color measurement
  • Continuous automatic monitoring of product quality
  • Automatic real time actions to correct out of specification situations
  • Improved product color consistency over the time
  • Waste reduction


The Laner is the ideal solution to provide a continuous flow of evenly laned products to your packaging machines.

  • Reduce Labor
  • Maximize throughput of packing machines
  • Flexible capabilities
    - Number of lanes
    - Type of products
    - Size and shape of products

Line Configurations

  • Line width: from 600mm up to 1.000mm (24" - 40")
  • Straight in-feed, 90° in-feed
  • Product throughput: from 300 pcs/min up to 1.000 pcs/min
  • the one laning system can lane different products into different number of lanes

System Modules

  • Accumulation conveyor module
  • Laning conveyor module
  • Laning chute
  • Outfeed conveyor (option)
