Advanced electromagnetic solution for quality testing of packaging for horti-fruit products

Objective

The project aims at developing, integrating and testing innovative low cost nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques and new fruit handling mechanisms for quality control in the selection process of horde-fruit packaging systems. The new Embraced quality control mechanisms will be implemented into existing fruit and vegetable weighting and packaging machines. The integrated selection and packaging system resulting from the QTEPACK project will increase the efficiency in eliminating the damaged fruit-fruit products prior to the final packaging step. This will reduce the shortcomings of quality control methods based on visual or manual inspection. The end users in an orange packaging line will evaluate the efficiency and reliability of the final prototype QTEPACKsystem. The result to be expected from future applications of the new QTEPACK system is a 40%increase in the detection of damaged items in fruit and vegetable batches.
