Ice cream is one of the most consistently popular products in the dairy industry, driving the creation of novelty products and a variety of flavor. With so many innovative flavors—each requiring its own unique look and, for some products, allergy warnings, it is important to ensure the proper label on each container. As the industry continues to grow, manufacturers need to find ways to increase their production output while also strengthening their quality control processes.
Manual inspection taking place on the line requires a slower production speed. As a result, more manufacturers are turning to machine vision inspection as a way of increasing quality control without sacrificing production speeds. IN addition, both container manufacturers and ice cream manufacturers have sought a better way to prevent labeling errors. After researching available options, one manufacturer decided to investigate vision inspection as a quality control solution.
