At E2M COUTH, we are specialised in artificial vision systems adapted to different sectors, based on specific needs. Vision systems for food are designed so that manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers of this kind of product can offer precise control during the delivery process for food packages to clients. These systems are essential for keeping food packages from leaving the plant in poor condition, with improper labelling, with incorrect weight, or many other issues.
Why is a vision system for food necessary?
Vision systems for food have grown increasingly common in industries devoted to food products. We can see that many of these systems have the ability to inspect both the inside and the outside of packages. This type of system has spectral detection mechanisms, which have the ability to recognise elements that could jeopardise client health or affect the final quality of the product, all in a non-invasive way.
These vision systems for food use cameras, sensors, and specific software to detect, analyse, and control all elements for producing and handling food packages. With this, vision systems for food can analyse the package’s physical attributes, such as size, weight, fill level, labelling, etc.
These systems are capable of collecting all data to conduct detailed reports so that producers and distributors can control, analyse, and improve the process as a whole. If you decide to install this sort of system, you will be able to comply with safety and quality regulations established by the food industry.
Reasons to have a vision system for food
Vision systems for food offer a series of solutions within the food industry. They are
- Package inspection: This is one of the most common uses of vision systems for food within the industry. With these devices, you can detect all flaws on bottles, tins, packages, etc. This includes improper sealing, containing more quantity of product, container orientation, and other aspects.
- Detecting foreign objects: This sort of problem does not occur frequently, but it can provoke a series of serious consequences for any food company. With vision systems for food, you can exhaustively verify that no foreign object has fallen into the container, upping your food safety and quality.

How E2M COUTH’s vision systems for food work
The vision systems that E2M COUTH offers play an essential role at any production plant. Companies that process and package food need to process food quickly, but while still guaranteeing a top level of quality.
The systems that we have at E2M COUTH normally have cameras and visual sensors (hardware) to constantly record the condition of the product to be analysed, thanks to the intelligence built into our solutions (software). This way, by establishing a series of parameters to follow, the device can act and analyse all the products, based on what has been established based on production criteria.
Some of the parameters can be how full the packages are, whether they are properly closed, the amount of product on trays, and more. These systems normally work by taking, processing, and analysing images of the food containers. This facilitates non-destructive evaluation of different product characteristics. The entire process is essential and necessary for food companies to ensure a high quality level in production.
Learn the advantages of using vision systems for food in your industry
With vision systems for food, you can make the most of a series of advantages within your industry. They are:
With vision systems for food, you can totally analyse all products in a reliable way. This makes it possible for you to guarantee that all food containers that leave production always have the proper settings, thereby guaranteeing their quality, such as labelling, weight, condition, etc.
This is a highly beneficial aspect for all food companies to compete on today’s markets, where quality is an essential element for success. A huge part of this depends on containers being in the right condition.
Another one of the great advantages of having a vision system for food is these devices’ ability to adapt to the task at hand. They can be configured to measure a huge amount of characteristics and parameters, depending on the kind of food you produce.
With this, you can supervise aspects like container fill, the presence of foreign objects, container orientation, and other aspects. To this end, depending on the company’s production line, raw material, or container type, you can choose one out of the different vision systems for food.
The vision systems for food you can find at E2M COUTH stand out because they are flexible. They can be simply installed next to the machinery already present in the production plant. Moreover, to control this kind of system, you do not need any experts to use them, because they have auxiliary calculation systems that conduct all the most complicated part of the analysis.
Another benefit that you can reap with vision systems for food is that there are no delays with the quality inspection for all products. All analyses are conducted in real time, easily adapting to very high production volumes.
Time is one of the most valuable elements on any production line, so with this kind of system, which operates at a high speed, you can guarantee end quality without causing any sort of delay.
With vision systems for food, you can detect any problem or error that occurs with the different food containers at all times, as well as when being filled.
