Production-Line Imaging System For Bakeries Assures Perfect Sandwich Buns

March 8, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
Researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) have developed a production-line imaging system for bakeries that assesses the quality of sandwich buns exiting the oven and automatically adjusts oven temperatures if buns are unacceptable. The researchers worked with Georgia baking company Flowers Foods and Baking Systems Technology to develop the prototype system, which is made of stainless steel, is dust and water resistant and mounts to conveyor belts as wide as 50 inches. The automated inspection-adjustment system would replace cumbersome manual procedures currently in place. The researchers say the system could be adapted to control the quality of other bakery products, such as biscuits, cookies, crackers, bread and pies.
