ABI will exhibit its KATANA multi-purpose robot scoring solution, which now also offers a waterjet scoring tool. The Toronto-based company will also present Eye-Q, its new AI-enabled quality control system, providing product quality analysis across different stages of production.
ABI prepares to exhibit in Munich alongside its sister company MECATHERM, both subsidiaries of the TMG holding company.
The enhanced KATANA robot scoring solution enables the scoring of a wide range of soft products and crusty breads, with features including its ultrasonic plunge and drag blade options. It comes with integrated software developed by ABI, to optimize its process accuracy.
ABI’s AI-enabled High Speed Vision system helps improve quality control throughout the production line thanks to precise data classification, ABI explains: “By quickly identifying the source of defects, operators can resolve production issues more efficiently and effectively, strategically positioned at a number of points on the production line (ex. after make-up and baking or at the packaging stage), Eye-Q is adaptable for a wide range of products and classifies each product in several categories based on each customer’s quality criteria and failure modes.”
