to implement R&D project
guided by EIT Food
R&D on the automation and digitization of
the food product label quality control processes
Current solutions on the market require manual handling, especially in terms of calibration and parameterization for new formats and products.
The innovative label quality inspection system being developed as part of the R&D project will provide 100% automated product control on production lines for two product categories – jars and pouche packaging – while simplifying the quality control procedure.
The project reflects the mission of the EIT Food organization (supported by the EIT, a body of the European Union) to create a net-zero food system
by automatizing quality control processes, reducing waste and optimizing resource utilization.
Automating and digitizing the label quality inspection process as part of the food industry’s green transformation. By preventing errors in food packaging, the project will contribute to system resilience, reduce costly recalls and maintain consumer confidence.
Create an innovative quality control system equipped with fully automated ROI configuration and data processing function parameters. The digital technology developed will translate into increased transparency, traceability and integrity in the food industry.
Implementation of 100% automated vision quality control solution requires overcoming several technological challenges, such as, i.a.: development of a centralized management system for quality control systems in the factory, development of procedures for automatic calibration and parameterization of systems for new formats and products, standardization of the database, algorithms and data processing models for different groups of products.
– Development (hardware, algorithm selection upon versatility)
– Collection of data, development of defect detection models
– Development of auto-calibration and parameterization algorithms for quality control
– Demo version and FAT tests on 50 products
– Process and legal aspects
– auto-calibration and parameterization algorithms for quality control
– analysis of 2D representation of the label and shape of the food product under inspection
– re-calibration for new formats and labels, setting ROIs (e.g., batch code, EAN), automatic conversion of settings to physical 3D products
The project is part of the EIT Food organization’s mission to create a net-zero food system by automating quality control processes, reducing waste and optimizing resource utilization. The project is implemented by a consortium of 3 companies (Campden BRI Hungary, Maspex, KSM Vision).
Europe’s leading organization for
food innovation, supported by the
European Institute of Innovation
and Technology (EIT),
a body of the European Union,
co-funded by the European Union.

KSM VisionDesign & Implementation
Trusted partner of the automated quality control industry. Since 2012, developing proprietary AI-driven optical quality control systems. KSM Vision systems use deep neural networks, allowing manual inspection to be completely eliminated from the production process.
They have already trusted us
In our opinion, the use of neural networks and the function of classifying detected defects distinguish the KSM Vision solution from competitive solutions, and the effectiveness achieved by the system ensures quality control at the level of systems of leading manufacturers.MLEKOVITA, 1 of 100 biggest Polish private companies 2022 according to Forbes

When designing the solution, KSM Vision showed great flexibility in adapting the system to the expectations of the BIOFARM Production Department. (...) Since the implementation of BLISPECT vision technology on the 1st BIOFARM production line almost two years ago, the KSM Vision Service Department has been available to BIOFARM employees with a good reaction time.BIOFARM Jarosław Pieczuro,

KSM Vision Sp. z o. o. has developed a system for quality control of glass vials for pills. (...) A big advantage of the system is the use of machine learning algorithms, which allows easy adjustment of the system.ADAMED Group Dariusz Stępień,
