Detección de kiwi plano: un sistema simple y muy efectivo

Simple and very effective system for the detection of flat kiwis.

One of the main problems when it comes to optimizing kiwifruit packaging work is in many cases the detection of fruits that have a flattened shape and that for many markets are no longer top-class for aesthetic reasons. 

In the packaging process, it is important to detect these fruits and discard them.

We have equipped our IngiSorter and IngiSorter + systems with a new algorithm that detects this type of fruit for disposal.

The condition is that our system is installed on a machine that has a weighing system and also works through cameras. This new utility is especially effective for cup-based machines, it is not necessary to rotate the fruit with a roller-based system since at all times we will have a view of the flat part of the fruit, this last aspect combined with additional measures, makes possible a very effective detection.


In this way we are able to separate the fruits of extra quality and homogeneous shape, from the others that for aesthetic reasons cannot be considered in this category.
