Brought to you by Eagle Vision, our global leader in vision systems brand, our DTV automated inspection system can significantly reduce your candy waste problem resulting in huge cost savings.

It combines state-of-the-art cameras and advanced technology. By scanning each and every candy tray it prevents for dirty trays. The tray will remain in the line but will not be filled with liquid jelly.

Wasted candy has traditionally been a big problem in the confectionery industry. A time and money consuming issue. Therefore we teamed up with a starch molding production expert to create an inspection device to solve it. The collaboration led to the most innovative and best solution invented over the last 25 years.

If you make confections then our DTV automated inspection system is the secret ingredient for success!

What does the DTV vision inspection system do?

Essentially, the Dirty Tray Vision system prevents a starch molding line from depositing into a starch tray, if it hasn’t been filled with starch in the correct way. If you start the process with an improperly filled tray then you will deposit jelly on the bottom of the tray. Over time this builds up.

So, what’s the problem? Simply put, you’ll be left with a lump of jelly. It can either be so thick that the molds from the moldboard will hit the jelly and break, or jelly will stick to the mold and make a bad imprint.

What does the DTV system inspect?

The DTV inspection system searches for a wide range of defects including:

  • bad quality imprints
  • broken, torn or collapsed walls
  • missing printed positions
  • residual product left in tray
  • mold missing or damaged moldboards or even wrong moldboard
  • insufficient or excessive starch deposits

Realistic ROI in just 12 months, or less

Our customers are typically able to report a strong return on investment within just 12 months of purchasing our unique and innovative industrial vision system. But we’ve been told of similar success stories in as little as three months!

The DTV system – an image of testing perfection

Our Dirty Tray Vision inspection system can automatically store images of each inspected tray. This helps you to monitor the quality of the production process.

The DTV system will compare images of trays to an ideal reference image of a ‘good tray’. If it’s not close enough to perfection, our reliable machine will take appropriate action.

Tray, camera…ACTION!

The DTV inspection vision system can choose a number of actions dependent on the problem it discovers. These range from allowing the tray to continue – if the issue is minor – through to automatically stopping the machine, messaging the operator or ejecting trays.

Dirty tray inspection = cleaner planet

We’ve told you how quickly our inspection vision systems will improve your bottom line performance by reducing expenditure. By drastically reducing product waste it’s better for the environment too. And if you need another reason…our DTV system reduces manual labor as well!

Round-the-clock inspection and support

The Eagle Vision Dirty Tray Vision system will run automatically 24/7 without losing focus, decreasing the number of production stops. It’s easily connected to your network so can be monitored remotely. Plus you can choose a service level agreement with round-the-clock support.

Don’t just take our word for it!

Our customers frequently tell us how pleased they are with the DTV automated inspection system’s swift impact on their business. US confectionery company Just Born were delighted with their investment, as a spokesperson explained:

“The Eagle Vision Dirty Tray Vision system has proven to be a reliable and functional addition to our jumbo mogul. Quality of product, reduction of scrap and long-term operating cost have all been enhanced by this addition to our system.”

Just Born kindly agreed to be featured as a case study recommending the DTV system and you can read it here. 

High-standard inspection vision systems

The Dirty Tray Vision is the highest quality inspection vision system for manufacturing confectionery. It was developed with dirty tray testing to international standards in mind.

Inspection vision systems portfolio

Industrial Physics makes a wide range of vision systems for manufacturing and accessories.

Have a look at the 360° Can Inspection module – a highly accurate mix-up and integrity detection system for cans. We also make the Eagle Vision System Code Reading Module inspects ink-jet, laser, thermal-transfer and pre-printed ID codes on various packaging types, including infant formula cans, food cans, beverage cans, labels, cartons, PET bottles, films and foils.

Sweet encourage-mint!

We like to share our expertise at Industrial Physics and we have written hundreds of articles, blogs and whitepapers across all the industries we serve on the knowledgebase section of our website.

While we’re focusing on the Dirty Tray Vision system, you may want to learn how a successful collaboration brought the DTV system into existence. If that’s the case then check out this Q&A with DTV expert Luuk Hilhorst.

Then you could follow up with this whitepaper we’ve written which explores how to achieve huge cost reductions in starch molding.
