A new company, Dipix Europe, has been set up in London to market and service Dipix systems in Europe. Dipix Technologies Inc, headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, is one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of automated inspection systems for the processed food industry.
Dipix's innovative machine vision systems monitor the high speed manufacture of food products such as biscuits, buns, tortillas, pizzas, bread and confectionery. The systems use 2D/3D imaging to provide accurate size, shape and colour information for randomly oriented, fast moving products.
"Labour rates are high in many European countries," said Dipix Europe managing director Robin Cairns, "so we expect our systems to pay for themselves in only one to two years."
Dipix has long been a pioneer and innovator in the processed food industry, having developed a wide range of innovations such as bottom colour scanning, individual piece rejection and automatic lane balancing for random objects. These innovations are developed in conjunction with customers to ensure that each installation meets all the customer's project requirements.
The company currently has over 150 systems installed worldwide, including North America, Asia, Europe and Australia. It has supplied systems across Europe for inspecting all the major physical parameters of bakery products supplied to McDonald's. Other applications include the inspection of frozen pizza bases at major pizza manufacturers throughout Europe.
Dipix is now also supplying systems for the world's largest manufacturers of tortillas, with equipment currently installed in the Netherlands and Spain, with the United Kingdom to follow shortly.
As well as in Europe, Dipix Europe will provide sales and service to Scandinavia, the Middle East and Africa.
