Quality control of sesame sprinkles

Consumers expect baked goods to be of a consistent quality. Product costs depend to a large degree on expensive ingredients such as sesame, so the seeds need to be counted. The Ranger 3D cameras detect the smallest details for inspection. Complex 3D image processing is performed by SICK AppStudio engineering software, which features powerful libraries, in conjunction with the SIM4000 Sensor Integration Machine.
