Problem

Cheese blocks are traditionally cut on systems that cannot accurately measure true weight of cheese, due to cheese irregularities such as cheese density. This led to cheese producers needing to cut blocks with up to 15% more cheese than labelled weight to ensure that customers are getting what they pay for, resulting in huge loss in profit.

Solution

TechBrew developed a vision system that can precisely measure weight distribution across a block of cheese, and therefore allow for the cutting of an exact weight. This accomplishment saves cheese packagers & sellers massive amounts, and improved Kraft Canada’s profit by the lost 15% per cheese block sold.
