Digital Imaging for Food Inspection Helps to Prevent Recalls and Product Claims

WATERLOO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/14 -- Food and beverage companies are under more pressure than ever to produce perfect products as a result of tighter regulations and higher standards. With 144 years of history in the food production business, Bizerba has implemented line scan cameras from Teledyne DALSA (NYSE: TDY) in its vision system to inspect production line food products, like packaged meats, cups of yogurt, or tins of sardines. The system inspects the bar code on the label, the text, and even the product itself.

A digital imaging inspection system can keep a sharp eye out for imperfections in packaging and labelling-performing crucial checks that prevent recalls and product claims. Bizerba has created a standard tool set tailored to the food and beverage industry that its customers can buy and be up and running quickly thanks to the well-designed user interfaces and timely training provided.

The food production and inspection industry is beginning to incorporate more technology innovations and process improvements, often borrowing from advanced machine vision systems. Visit Teledyne DALSA's Digital Imaging Possibility Hub to read the full article on Bizerba.
