The challenge

The application on the fruits of the label, characterizing area of origin or brand, is an onerous task, carried out manually on the fruit already stored in a box.
The goal of automating this operation is hampered by the irregularities of the single fruit surfaces, but also by the entire surface of the fruits in the box, so there is the risk of a double or missing application.

The solution

The solution developed allows to make the label application automatically, by piloting the process thanks to a mapping of the surface, obtained by 3D laser scanning: in this way, the software provides the labeling machine with xyz coordinates of the exact point at which to apply the sticker for each fruit.
