Image processing is about extracting information from images. This task, which is relatively simple for humans, can quickly become a big challenge for computers. Depending on the information that is needed, different imaging systems are used, from simple color cameras to sophisticated spectrometers.
For 10 years now, we have been developing image processing software to provide highly efficient solutions for demanding applications in industry. We offer a wide range of software in two groups. The first of these is the software for sorting machines, which we offer exclusively with the REDWAVE sorting systems. The other group is the quality-control software which we use to create tailormade systems for highly diverse specific industrial processes.
Software for the recycling industry: we offer a wide range of products, including sorting software, easy to use operator interfaces and process optimization software. All of these products are sold exclusively through BT-Wolfgang Binder with the REDWAVE product line.
Individual quality-control systems specially developed for specific industrial processes. We offer systems that apply image processing to many different process steps, from production to packaging and warehousing, and use the information to control individual processes.
The C48 Vision System is used to automatically detect batch numbers of raw tobacco cartons, as well as for the automatic strapping of cartons that are not properly packed.
Continuous quality control is an essential part of the manufacturing process of many high-quality products. Up to now, many controls could be done inline using conventional cameras but some still had to be done by taking samples out of the production process and analyzing them offline. Hyperspectral camera technology changes this and creates many new possibilities for inline controls.
The Food Analyzer gives you the maximum of food safety in your manufacturing process. Perfect detection and removal of contaminating materials makes the Food Analyzer stand out from the competition. Glass, plastic (even when transparent), metal, paper, cardboard, stones, shells or a variety of organic contaminants such as pests: the Food Analyzer detects and ejects them all.
Continuous quality control in the manufacturing process is essential for products with high quality expectations, such as those of the processed meat industry. Manual control is not always feasible, due to high production speeds, exacting demands of the consumers or too high costs. This is where the Meat Sorter from BT-Anlagenbau can help.
