The faster a packaging line goes, the more risk for portion inaccuracy. The DS1000 series of 3D displacement sensors addresses applications that demand high resolution and greater measurement range, such as measuring height, volume and tilt of parts.
A robot-mounted DS1300 with VC5 Vision Controller will scan trays to calculate the volume of dispensed food, and confirm that the volume in individual food trays meets users’ defined tolerance. The contrast-independent controller works on all tray colors.
DS1101 sensors offer flexible calibration. One application for these sensors is to detect broken vacuum seals, open air channels, and food debris in a seal, thereby reducing risks of spoiled food product reaching consumers.
