Vision technology for the food and beverage industry

With high-​precision imaging, the food & beverage industry tests even hard-​to-inspect products with absolute reliability. The result: 100% quality and ever-​growing productivity.

As Europe's leading provider of machine vision technology and services STEMMER IMAGING has extensive experience working with world leading equipment manufacturers, systems integrators and end volume end users in many aspects of food production from automated harvesting, processing, sorting and portioning right through to validating the packaging and labels before shipment.

Flight test passed

Wolf GmbH uses a sorting system from BT-Anlagenbau for the reliable detection of synthetic intestine residues, some of which are as small as 1mm2 on Berner sausages, and to detect contaminated products. The key elements of these systems are machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING combined with smart imaging software and a precise sorting system from BT-Anlagenbau, which enable the inspection of sausages in flight during the production process.

New ZEISS Dimension ultra high-performance C-mount lenses

17/09/2018

The new Dimension range of lenses from Zeiss has been designed for precise high-end applications, where distortion, vignetting and colouring issues must be minimised. Developed specifically for C-mount cameras, these new lenses provide high contrast, razor-sharp images, even at maximum aperture. They are virtually distortion-free across the entire area of sensors up to 4/3” and can resolve pixel sizes down to 2 μm.
