project overview
Project Overview
  • Technical practicality and economic feasibility of the proposed project has been proven.
  • Implement the previous research entitled “Automated Assessment of a Critical Food Processing Variable”.
  • Development of the decision model programming for controlling oven belt speed.
  • Development of the data gathering/keeping to support decision model program.
project overview1
Project Overview
  • Development of diagnostics to identify procedural problems and provide solutions for correcting error.
  • Automated system must handle harsh environment of USDA regulated food processing plant.
  • Automated system should allow for greater production, improve labor costs, provide better data management, and allow for greater system control
engineering development phase i
ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT( phase I )
  • Accurate electronic temperature collection/transmission

engineering development phase i1
Engineering development( phase i )
  • Specialized end effectors.
  • Self adjusting temperature probing fixture.
  • Recovery techniques which may or may not require human attendant.
  • Insuring sanitation procedures.
  • Develop attendant training.
  • Defining maintenance procedures.
installation phase ii
Installation( phase ii )
  • Purchase of a machined-vision robotic arm and other equipment/supplies
  • Preparation of the physical site in the plant to include safety, sensors, interlocks and utilities
  • Validate programming of partial system in a laboratory setting before installation
installation phase ii1
Installation( phase ii )
  • Training human attendant and maintenance personnel.
  • Consultation for installation process.
  • Assist in validation of process to meet USDA regulations.
