Print & packaging
Inspection is a critical component of HACCP programs in the food industry. Hyperspectral imaging now provides a powerful complementary approach for the machine vision engineer. Its ability to identify differences in the chemical composition of organic materials opens up major new possibilities for detecting impurities in food products. Most importantly, systems are now available that operate in real time, allowing them to be used on high speed production lines.
They’re already widely used in offices or at ticket vending machines, but they’re only known to insiders within the industry: documents, cards or bank notes are often read and checked by scanners. Mitsubishi Electric has responded to the needs of the industry and has made this technology available for production, with the launch of a high-speed version of its Contact Image Sensor (CIS), distributed under the name Mitsubishi Electric Line Scan Bar.

The packaging industry is facing great challenges. Personalisation instead of industrial mass production is one of the trends in almost every application area. Regardless of whether packaging is used in the medical or food sector, for cosmetics or in other industries: They all require machine configurations that can change and quickly adapt, at the press of a button. Mechanical engineers in the packaging industry greatly benefit from the huge variety of possibilities offered by STEMMER IMAGING, Europe’s largest imaging technology provider, thanks to its comprehensive range of components and services.
