Engilico receives a VLAIO grant to develop hyperspectral solution for in-line seal inspection of thermoformed packaging and trays

Engilico Rotselaar, Leuven – Engilico received a grant from VLAIO to develop a seal inspection solution for thermoformed packaging and trays, often used in food applications. The inspection solution will use hyperspectral imaging (HSI) technology and dedicated image processing. The new development will allow to detect contamination in the seal with a much higher contrast than traditional vision-based systems and to measure through printed and transparent film.
