Inspection of the appearance of sliced processed meat


The SliceCheck system inspects the appearance of sliced meat products using computer vision technology (camera, lighting and image processing software).

This new SliceCheck module guarantees the perfect appearance of a packed product using reliable and accurate computer vision technology developed by Luceo Inspection Worldwide.
