MVTec Software GmbH
 

Food & Agriculture

The production, processing, and packaging of foods are highly competitive and fast-paced industries. To maintain consistent quality, competitive prices, and to quickly respond to ever-changing food trends, manufacturers turn to machine vision technology to control manufacturing processes and improve production efficiency.   

 

Whether automating agriculture with vision-guided farming equipment, maintaining consistent standards of quality through high-speed sorting, optimizing yields of robotic cutting and portioning systems, detecting contaminates in packaged foods or moldy fruits (by using hyperspectral or multispectral cameras), accurately identifying products for packaging and labeling, or a need for reliable track and trace standards, MVTec provides technology for producers and packagers alike to achieve efficient and consistent production, and keep up with consumers’ ever-changing demands.
