SAL3D Area Tool
Aqsense has introduced a new module as part of its SAL3D 3D vision software library. The Area Tool automatically determines the volume of scanned objects at high speeds, thus enabling complete in-line measurements.
Aqsense's flexible 3D software library offers two functional configurations: The measurement of an area with respect to a reference line and the measurement of closed profile areas. The first configuration makes use of a single camera-laser system and is employed in applications such as fish slicing. The closed profile configuration uses a multi-camera-laser system and analyses the complete outline of whatever figure, allowing the measurement of any object while, for example, changing from one conveyor belt to another.
The Area Tool has a wide range of applications in the food industry and has successfully been used by Aqsense in several projects such as sausage slicing or material density checking for the detection of inner bubbles.
