LASER SENSORS FOR THE FOOD PRODUCT MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
Food production is one of the most automated industries on the planet. Manufacturer’s seek consistency in their products and want to keep production costs low. While beverage manufacturers and bottling plants have always used simple photodetectors to control product movement on production lines, makers of french fries or packers of meat have distinct measurement applications for their processes. Overhead laser scanners measure produce and meat as it passes on a conveyor belt.
Food products may be packaged into boxes by hand, but those boxes are carefully arranged on palettes by robotic palletizers. These machines employ laser rangefinders which measure stack heights.
