Dipix technology inspects, sorts and positions grain-based manufactured foods in high speed manufacturing environments. Based on the identification of the state, position and velocity of any baked product, Dipix systems can convert a random flow of product from the bakery stream into a well managed, fully-in-spec and in-position flow of product to downstream packing or cutting equipment. Analysis and reporting provides detailed or summary information directly to bakery management and shift staff. All Dipix systems can be customized to manage automatic rejection of defects based on product-specific criteria. They allow immediate change over between product configurations with no physical equipment changes.
