Scorpion Pizza Sorting System
Tordivel has launched the Scorpion Pizza Sorting System. The modular system comprises a conveyor, an ejector unit, machine vision hardware and software. The system is designed to meet the IP-grades and wash down requirements of the food industry.
The following core functions describe the system: locate pizza, measure diameter, thickness profile and edge defects. Based on the measurements the user can set up the sorting criteria in a user-friendly graphical interface. The capacity of the system is 7,200 pizzas per hour at a conveyor speed of 0.5-1.0m/s. The system handles multiple and different sizes through a flexible recipe system. The diameter resolution is 0.5mm and the height resolution is 0.2mm.
The machine is based on the powerful Scorpion Vision Software. Intended to reduce waste and improve quality, the system uses a series of cameras to build a 3D profile of each product.
The system targeted for the pizza factory, can easily be modified to any bakery line requirement and can cater for most baked products. It can be installed in new lines or retrofitted into existing lines. The automatic system improves quality and reduces cost.
