Machine vision equipment for bulk product inspection
Bulk Inspector analyses any type of raw product, being suitable for all types of products. It is a quality inspection equipment designed to verify the correct chemical composition of the products by means of hyperspectral vision and chemical images.
The equipment is also capable of checking the presence of any surface chemical compound, being able to classify the product typology according to its chemical composition and detect contamination. The equipment incorporates a patented lighting system that allows the capture of linear hyperspectral images at high speed.
What are the advantages?
Detection of defects so far invisible to vision systems
Classification according to surface chemical composition
Quality classification by chemical image processing
Adaptable to any production plant
Great versatility in the typology of products analyzed
The equipment composes chemical images based on hyperspectral imaging in different bands of the infrared spectrum.
Bulk Inspector has extensive image processing capabilities that allow chemical composition analysis by in-line mass spectrometry.
- High-speed hyperspectral image capture and processing
- Parallel generation of different chemical images
- Classification of products and detection of quality defects by chemical composition
- Detection of invisible foreign bodies
Its advanced technology allows imaging not only in the visible range, but also in the near infrared NIR and SWIR range, using hyperspectral imaging technology.
Hyperspectral vision technology is a technique with multiple applications as it combines spectroscopy and image analysis, contributing to the efficiency of quality control processes in the food industry where it is essential to know this kind of factors in real time. The equipment integrates a chemical image composition software developed by INSPECTRA, which allows automatic quality control tasks to be carried out.
The chemical image allows inspection of relevant anomalies in the composition of the fresh product and also segmentation of by-products (lean, fat, etc.). Furthermore, it enables the inspection of foreign bodies in the product, as these generally have a well-differentiated spectral signature (plastic, sticks, paper, etc.).
After detection, the foreign bodies detected are extracted by means of a rejection system adapted to the continuous process. The great advantage of this technology is that it can process images in both the visible and near-infrared range, with different speeds and inspection widths, which allows it to adapt to any product.
