Cameras for Production and Quality Inspections

Food and Beverages

Rising quality expectations for foods and production processes running faster than ever are a perpetual challenge for food producers. Modern cameras have come to provide comprehensive support for production and quality checks of foodstuffs. They ensure uniform quality of the foods and high efficiency in the production process.

Basler cameras are extraordinarily well-suited to the various applications found in the food industry. Among their features:

  • High dynamic range
  • High frame rates
  • Excellent price/performance ratio

Typical Areas of Use and Suitable Cameras

  • Food Inspection

    The areas of use of cameras in food inspection include the testing of geometrics, testing for foreign objects, and the testing of the packaging, as well as the analysis of the food quality and freshness.
