(ControlEurope) The labor market is becoming more challenging, which is resulting in more food manufacturers looking to robotic for a solution as the cost of complexity of robot technology have both decreased. Machine vision is adding greater versatility and flexibility to robots and that together they can now offer cost-effective automated solutions for a wide range of food industry applications.
With intelligence and communication on board, machine vision provides robot guidance that has the potential to open up countless new uses. It supports quality inspection, localisation, positioning and orientation of products on a conveyor and can enable accurate measurement. Working together robotics and machine vision are shrugging off the shackles of their somewhat exclusive and often expensive past to liberate food and beverage processes.
