Laser detection capabilities added to vision and counting solution

20 May 2019

ILAPAK has upgraded its Vision2000 vision and counting platform with new laser height detection capabilities and has added features to allow easier access for maintenance. 

The Vision2000 uses line scan camera technology to count and feed baked goods into the infeed of a vertical form fill sealing (VFFS) machine at high speed. The system can also be supplied with a quality control module. This module uses a camera to screen product flow for deformed or damaged products by performing surface and length/width checks. New functionality for this module includes integrated laser height detection as an option. 

If required, the system can be equipped with an integrated metal detector, which can share a retractable reject system with the quality control module.

Key to the flexibility of the belt-based system is a line scan camera, which can capture up to 2,000 images per second. The images are overlaid to produce a ‘real time’ picture of the product flow, and intelligent software processes this image to calculate when the target number per pack has been reached. Batches are separated via pneumatically controlled ‘fingers’. 

The Vision2000 offers flexibility in terms of product type, shape and size. It can accommodate fresh, par-baked, frozen and difficult-to-handle raw dough products, whether baguettes, pretzel sticks, rolls, bagels, donuts or croissants.
