Food Portioning

Take control of food portioning to reduce waste and maximize yield

/uploadedImages/2014_Taxonomy/Industries/DS_Applications/_Food-Portioning.jpg?n=4328

Challenge:

Accurately measure the volume of a food item for portioning that eliminates waste and reduces production costs.

Solution:

Other solutions use a single sensor to measure volume but this does not give an accurate result because parts of the item may be missed.

The Cognex solution combines results from multiple sensors with a simple unique calibration method to deliver a highly accurate 3D volumetric measurement of your food item. The Cognex solution provides the user with the ability to set portion sizes and specific cut points for a slicer.

Cognex also offers an industrial IP69K enclosure to house the sensors in high temperature and wash-down areas to sanitize equipment.

Results:

The Cognex solution provides accurate volumetric measurements, correct portioning and eliminates waste.
