Machine Vision Applications

Food

Quality control of can seam
Canned fish

The canned food can seams are not exempt from faults, especially for aluminum cans. A defect in the can seam that reaches the market, can cause effects on public health, not to mention the poor brand image that this creates.

A manufacturer of canned sea food, consciousness with this problem, has installed a system for the inspection of the can seam. The machine vision system checks all around the closure of each of the cans produced. This setup allowed to relocate 24 workers performing this task, to cover the rate of production (200 cans/min) of the 4 lines installed.

Versatility in the production line
Sausage manufacturing

To meet the market demand for various products, a sausage manufacturer has installed an automated system controlled by machine vision to quickly adapt the production line to the different sizes and varieties demanded by consumers.

The system consists of two machine vision subsystems. One is in charge of guiding a robot to choose the appropriate sausage for its package. Subsequently, another vision subsystem, verifies that the package is complete and allows the sealing.
