Avocado Inspection

The media already published a number of scandals that may result from neglected quality controls and inferior process monitoring.

Germany is known for its high standards in quality control in the food industry. They have very strict guidelines. And there are a lot of conditions and restrictions that must be adhered to. In contrast to common samples, which in turn require higher costs and more time, LuxFlux offers a suitable alternative. We rely on hyperspectral technologies that enable complete, fast and non-contact measurement in the process.

The sorting of food (e.g. avocados) works by means of hyperspectral near-infrared sensors. LuxFlux has developed the industry-suited software in order to quickly and effectively remove foreign objects (e.g. stones, wood, plastics, sand or insects), unwanted by-products (such as stems or leaves), contaminations or “material damages” (such as bruises or maturity). The divergent substances may subsequently be analyzed, identified and (in case of the maturity level) measured.

Our software enables more efficient work in the food industry. Optimizing the analysis, inspection, and sorting process ensures a high standard of quality. It ultimately facilitates the customer’s buying decision while protecting the consumer and enhancing the reputation of their own brand.
