Machine vision solutions for inline inspection in confectionery

A traditional field of application for vision systems is the confectionery industry. Here, many quality features or product characteristics can only be checked visually. A varying appearance of the products and different error classes are common. Precisely for these reasons, image processing solutions for this area pose a particular challenge.

Bi-Ber has been supplying camera systems for confectionery “made in Berlin” for more than 25 years now and has immense experience in this special industry. Examples for Bi-Ber’s solutions are the all-round 2D or 3D inspection of chocolate bars, the quality check of toppings or waffles as well as the product inspection with artificial intelligence (AI).

In this application, the vision system carries out the final inspection of chocolate-coated wafers. While still in the mould, the chocolate wafers are checked for foreign objects and quality defects. Holes, breakage, smeared coatings and leaking fillings must be marked as rejects. Up to 60 moulds per minute with a maximum of 54 products in each can be inspected.

Bi-Ber vision systems are Windows-based and equipped with modern GigE or USB3 color cameras. They have multilingual firmware and modern software interfaces and functionality.
