Get Every Cheese
Producing the perfect cheese is an art. It is all about creating the same taste, texture and appearance in every cheese, which is difficult as the production process is long and complex.
Cheese producers know that small adjustments matter. And consumers want the cheese experience they value every time. Our vision inspection helps cheese producers to achieve consistency in all cheese products.
A common challenge in cheese productions is to detect mold spots in cheese blocks, which occur if e.g. oxygen is present below the plastic, if moisture occurs or if the temperature is too high, which can cause bacteria to grow during the cheese's maturing time.
We inspect cheese blocks before the plastic cut process, helping cheese producers avoid large costs related to mold issues. Mold spores spread in a production facility typically cause significant waste and downtime as extensive cleaning is required. Additionally, recalls and sales declines related to mold issues are also avoided.
Foreign Object Detection
Detection of Plastic
Plastic parts stuck in the surface of cheese blocks after the foil cut process is a well-known challenge for cheese producers. To detect these flaws, many producers use manual inspection, which requires a significant reduction of the conveyor speed. However, detecting plastic in cheese surfaces remains challenging for the human eye, and some flaws are overlooked.
With tailored vision solutions for reliable, high-speed inspection, TriVision enables cheese producers to operate efficiently while making sure that all approved cheese blocks contain no plastic parts in the surface.
Inspection of Cheese Slices
Our solutions are also utilized to inspect slices of food, including cheese slices. Before stacking their cheese slices, producers want to check the slices' quality and make sure that they are ready for stacking.
Our solutions check the cheese slices' position on the conveyor to ensure proper stacking, but also inspects each slice's shape and colour to ensure that all slices are complete and have a uniform look.
