In the food processing industry, there are many types of products and high production intensity. How can enterprises be freed from traditional manual labor and workshop-style operations to improve food safety and production efficiency?

On automated production lines, one of the most complete types of operations performed by industrial robots is the Grab and Place action. In the face of high-precision work, it is often equipped with machine vision guidance and positioning, which greatly increases the flexibility of production. How to introduce it into the food processing line?

Quick-frozen foods are favored by office workers. At present, automation manufacturers have realized the dynamic high-speed grabbing of multi-shapes through SCARA and machine vision systems, and achieved clean production.

The process design of the solution is not complicated. Visually capture the frozen food on the conveyor belt quickly, and transfer the position information to the robot. The robot quickly removes it and puts it in the food packaging bag, and then automatically flows into the next station for sealing. The whole loading and unloading is only 1 second.

So what are the technical points to be solved in this program?

Deformation matching, which can be accurately locate the product without limiting the size and height of the product,

In our impression, visual positioning technology is mainly used for the capture and positioning of standard shape products, such as mobile phone cameras, screens and so on. However, it appears to be a bit special in the food processing industry. For example, the shape of the steamed bread cannot be completely standardized, which puts higher demands on the vision.

Stable Image Processing Algorithm

At present,the mainstream visual image processing technology, the average processing time of a picture will reach 100 milliseconds, so that the maximum efficiency of 10 frames / sec is captured.It's  too late in the high-frame rate application scenario of frozen food grabbing.

The AVS vision software of ADTECH can achieve image processing time of less than 10 milliseconds, which can meet the capture efficiency of 90 frames per second. It has high stability, low false positive rate, and the missed rate is close to 0%. The overall yield is 99.9%. The working beat can reach 3600/hour.

The Clean Design Of The Robot Is Standard Requirement

A safe food production environment is essential. The robot + vision solution provided by ADTECH has been designed cleanly for the food industry. It has no residue and no oil leakage. It cuts food safety hazards from the source and saves space. The product switching can be completed in 10 minutes  .

Automation companies are working with food companies to create an efficient and safe Food Kingdom.
