For JAI, “watch what you eat” is more than just a saying.

Sorting and grading of fruit and vegetables requires maximum color accuracy

JAI’s unique prism camera technology provides unsurpassed color fidelity for measuring ripeness, sorting by colors, and other mission-critical color tasks. No other vendor gives you a wider range of advanced color solutions for machine vision systems.

High speed options - increase quality without sacrificing production rates

Whether it’s a bottling line at more than 70,000 containers per hour or a high-speed conveyor filled with nuts, grains, or other food, JAI cameras keep inspection systems operating at top speed. Choose from high-speed line scan cameras or fast area scan cameras to give your system a competitive edge.

Multi-spectral cameras - catch problems you can see, and those you can’t

Powerful two-in-one cameras enable systems to capture visible and near infrared images in a single pass, supporting critical sorting and inspection tasks like removing foreign objects, identifying bruises and moisture content, catching signs of early decay, and much more.

Helping machine vision system designers satisfy their appetite for quality

Advanced color and multispectral capabilities, highly reliable operation, and a range of high-speed options including both line scan and area scan solutions helps to create systems that insure the highest quality in what we eat and drink.

In the beverage industry, JAI cameras are applied in applications throughout the bottling process, including inspecting for defective bottles, sorting of bottles and crates in correct sizes and variants, hygiene inspection, fill-level inspection, label inspection, and control of bottle cap placement.

In the food industry, JAI cameras sort fruit and vegetables by color, grade, and size on conveyor belts; remove foreign objects; and identify when and where to “puff away” impurities, discolorations, or other unwanted items from the flow of nuts, rice, and other grains tumbling past the reject nozzles.

Typical food & beverage applications

Vegetable sorting

Multispectral cameras inspect the color, size and shape of raw produce while simultaneously identifying foreign objects and signs of decay.

Baked goods inspection

JAI cameras are used in systems that check for proper color, size, cracks, missing corners and other concerns in cookies, biscuits, and other commercial baked goods.

Bottle inspection

Everything from labels, to fill levels, to caps or corks can be visually inspected at production rates well beyond the capability of human operators.

Food grading

On food processing lines, items like French fries or fish fillets are graded by size, shape, or quality before being sent for packaging and freezing.

Intelligent farming

Multispectral cameras with 2-CMOS sensors in each camera (simultaneous visual/NIR light imaging) are ideal for inter-row guidance systems that align themselves with crop rows for efficient automatic crop cultivation.
