SENBAK - Multisensor system for bakery products
Friday 9 March 2007During the production of durable baked goods (e.g. hard biscuits, crackers, crisp bread, rusk, ice-cream waffles) and after baking, it is necessary to monitor certain product parameters in well-defined periods of time in order to ensure that the products fulfil the required quality and appearance standards.
The overall objective of this project is the development of an automatic multi-sensor inspection system for quality measurement of durable baked goods in production lines. The most important quality parameters are weight, moisture content, colour and physical dimensions. The SENBAK quality control system measures all four properties within a single automated system. The system is aimed at small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to provide them with a precise, easy-to-use quality control tool.
