Labeling Food Directly on the Skin
AT – Automation Technology has developed an application in collaboration with system manufacturer EcoMark that allows for the laser marking of food directly on the skin. The 3D sensor from AT determines the position of the fruit or vegetable on the conveyor belt and then transmits this signal to the marking laser.
AT has developed a 3D sensor that is both fast and highly precise while reliably sending data to the labeling laser despite changing measurement widths and varying positions of the food items.
A 3D sensor from the C6-2040CS series. AT’s 2040 sensors not only combine speed and accuracy but also allow for a measurement width of up to one meter with a high resolution of 2,048 measurement points. Furthermore, they are virtually maintenance-free, require minimal support, and can be easily integrated into any existing system via Plug & Play using their GigEVision interface without much installation effort.
