Automatic pizza inspection system uses cameras and leading vision software. Developed by Tordivel in Norway, the system is now being deployed at a number of food manufacturing plants in Scandinavia. Now available in the UK.

Tordivel Group, based in Oslo and with an office in Southampton, have just installed a market leading optical inspection system designed specifically for bakeries. The machine is based on the same powerful Scorpion Vision Software that has been at the heart of many automatic inspection systems used in manufacturing industries. Intended to reduce wastage and improve quality, the system uses a series of cameras to build a 3D profile of the product as it leaves the oven.

Paul Wilson, of Scorpion Vision Ltd said, ‘This new system uses reliable, innovative techniques to build a mathematical model of the baked product in real time. A product can be diverted off the production line if it does not meet certain criterion such as colour, height, width, shape, etc.’

Designed initially for a pizza factory, the system can be retrofitted to bakery lines and can cater for most types of baked product, no matter how big or small.

Scorpion Vision states that one major strength of the system is that it uses standard ‘off the shelf’ components. For example, the image acquisition is completed by Basler Gigabit Ethernet Linescan Cameras using industry standard GigE drivers and protocols. The company says that this concept reduces costs and claims that as a result the bakery inspection system is competitively priced.
