BitFlow to Sponsor Live Webinar on Infrared and Hyperspectral Machine Vision in Food & Beverage Inspection

To help producers successfully incorporate infrared and hyperspectal imaging, BitFlow, Inc., a manufacturer of frame grabbers, is sponsoring a free webinar titled "Imaging Technologies in Food and Beverage Inspection," scheduled for Thursday, October 4 at 10:00am Eastern Time (U.S) and 3:00pm (U.K).

WOBURN, MA, SEPTEMBER 4, 2018 -- Food and beverage producers face mounting pressure to verify quality, ensure accurate packaging, and deliver consumables that are traceable through the supply chain. As government safety regulations are further tightened and consumers demand more transparency about contents, the adoption of newer, more avanced imaging systems is on the rise, especially infrared and hyperspectral technologies.


To help producers successfully incorporate infrared and hyperspectal imaging, BitFlow, Inc., a manufacturer of frame grabbers, is sponsoring a free webinar titled "Imaging Technologies in Food and Beverage Inspection," scheduled for Thursday, October 4 at 10:00am Eastern Time (U.S) and 3:00pm (U.K). Participants will enjoy an open and candid discussion with two leaders in the machine vision industry -- Raf Vandersmissen, Product Manager at Xenics and Mark Williamson, Managing Director at Stemmer -- and take away ideas for addressing specific imaging challenges, tips on how to employ the new technology, and increase the quality, field and cost-efficiency of their systems.

The webinar's first speaker will be Raf Vandersmissen who will address "Infrared enabled inspection applications," discussing how companies can leverage current infrared technologies to give them an edge in a highly competitive market. The second speaker, Mark Williamson, will tackle the topic of how machine learning and hyperspectral imaging are advancing food and beverage inspection. Hyperspectral imaging can capture many types of food contamination such as mold that may lay below the surface and are not easily detected even by the human eye. Greg Blackman, editor of Imaging and Machine Vision Europe, will serve as moderator.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
