Vision Camera in Food Industry
I. Powerful Solutions to safeguard products, packaging, and traceability in food industry
Successful food and beverage operations embrace innovations in product quality inspection, packaging inspection, assembly verification, allergen management, traceability, and food safety to minimize downtime and deliver consistently high quality, safe products with fewer defects and less waste. Cognex machine vision systems and industrial barcode readers offer powerful solutions to protect product quality and safety, ensure package integrity, manage allergens, and maintain traceability.
1. PRODUCT QUALITY INSPECTION
Detect damaged products and preserve brand loyalty
Products can break or become damaged during production. Product quality inspections prior to packaging are critical to ensure completeness, maintain customer satisfaction, and protect brand reputation. Cognex vision systems and industrial barcode readers perform product quality inspections to identify defects in size, shape, color, texture, portioning, and fill level before they reach the customer. These inspections protect your company’s reputation against the net effect of damaged goods while avoiding stoppages and downtime.
2. PACKAGING INSPECTION
Avoid damage, prevent contamination, and preserve brand loyalty
Packaging affects consumer perception of product quality, safety, and value. Cognex vision systems inspect food packaging to ensure it is correctly assembled, tamper-proof, defect free, and complete so manufacturers are assured that only the highest quality products reach customers.
4. ASSEMBLY VERIFICATION
Detect missing items, verify completeness, and enable vision-guided robotics
Identifying assembly defects early saves significant time and money, especially when a single failure can affect the entire batch. Machine vision systems ensure completeness and consistency and enable vision-guided robotic pick-and-place applications, quickening and error-proofing the transition from production to packaging.
5. ALLERGEN MANAGEMENT AND TRACEABILITY
Trace and track allergens and locate items quickly to limit recalls and prevent counterfeiting
Mislabeled allergens threaten public health and can result in expensive and damaging recalls. Strict rules established by the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) and agencies in other countries require manufacturers to label and trace common allergens. To ensure product safety and efficient recalls, manufacturers must be able to quickly identify and locate non-compliant products in the supply chain posing hazards to consumers. Cognex tools verify product ingredients are labelled correctly, while track-and-trace solutions prevent packing mistakes and help locate recalled items quickly to minimize loss. Product verification and traceability solutions also prevent counterfeiting and unauthorized sales and distribution.
6. WAREHOUSING AND DISTRIBUTION
Streamline packing, sorting, palletizing, and inventory management
Manufacturers must optimize not only their production capacity and quality, but also their warehousing and fulfillment operations to meet growing performance criteria and customer demands. Cognex vision systems and image-based barcode readers dramatically increase the speed, accuracy, and productivity of warehouses and distribution centers.
