KPM Analytics Inc. recently announced that it has acquired EyePro System S.r.l., a company headquartered in Trento, Italy, that specializes in vision inspection technology and vision-based process control solutions for the baking and snack industries.
Driven by growing quality demands of consumers, food safety, supplier competition, and Industry 4.0 automation, the need for automated vision systems continues to grow, especially in the food production industry in relation to quality inspection, process control, product handling, and automated inspection/rejection applications. With 100 percent in-line inspection capability and automatic defect removal, system users can immediately increase productivity, reduce production costs, and improve product quality. The EyePro and Sightline product lines of KPM Analytics deliver this immediate and quantifiable value by leveraging leading technologies, applying deep application and measurement algorithm know-how, and working closely with food producers on full integration into new and existing production lines.
With EyePro as part of KPM Analytics, customers will experience improved sales & service support globally, increased manufacturing capacity and regional presence, a deeper technology portfolio, and a wider range of systems and applications. EyePro will continue to center its business and operations from its headquarters in Trento, Italy.
