360° scanner for food processing
Aqsense's laser triangulation and point cloud processing library, SAL3D, has been implemented into a 360° scanner for food processing machines by Italian system integration company ImagingLab.
The system is intended for food scanning in slicing and portioning applications. The volume of sliced portions, such as ham, sausage or cheese, is calculated through a three-camera and three-laser setup capturing the complete profile contour of the scanned object, with a measurement error of below 1 per cent. The approach has shown a significant advantage over fixed volume/fixed weight portioning systems.
SAL3D is the first standard 3D vision tool kit developed for system integrators and machine builders, for applications in the areas of 3D quality control and 3D dimensional measurements in factory automation.
