News: J.A.I.M.S releases the onions counting and weighting system OCW100, OCW105, OCW115 and OCW120.

As mentioned in a previous announcement J.A.I.M.S. releases four version of Onion Counting and Weighting systems during the months: March, April, May and June.
To improve the quality to it's highest level the Counting and Weighting system, OCW115 is capable of measuring multiple batches and storing the data in a data base. Onion weight counter
The previous measured onion data gives critical information about the current product Quality.
Quality tracebility is achieved by linking the data base with the Sales Order system, realized in OCW120.

This is a start of multipurpose Counting and Weighting systems for a variaty of other product for foodproduction and plantproducing companies.

News: J.A.I.M.S develops onions counting and weighting system.

The Netherlands contains world class plant onions producers.
To improve the quality it's necessary to count and weight onions samples based and calculate the number of onions per kilogram. Onion weight counter
Saving long term data and subsequently analyse the data results in more knowledge about the long term quality control of this sensitive product.

J.A.I.M.S.'s development is of major importance to improve the onions quality and during 2017 the Onions Counting and Weighting (known as OCW) system will be launched.
This is a start of multipurpose Counting and Weighting systems for a variaty of other product for foodproduction companies.
March 2017 the alpha software version is launched and tested.

News: Diamond Tool Measurement Software DTM112 is launched

Until June 2016 J.A.I.M.S. developd a new version of the Diamond Tool Measurement Software known as: DTM112: Diamont Tool Tool_radius segment


New features:
  - manually selection of the measurement area for radius diamond tool tip.
  - manually selection of the measurement area multi facet diamond tool tip.
  - new calibration software using the line pattern calibration reticle.

Special shaped tool results in image Medical thread cutter results in image

This new software version is lauched june 2016.
The Diamond Tool Measurement DTM112 is also used as platform for other more complex shapes e.g. a thread cutter for medical purposes.

News: Onion Inspection

Januari 2016: Publication of Onion Inspection.

JAIMS Onion Image Monitoring and selection product in the agricultural and food industry is mostly done through manual labor.
Automating this visual monitoring process seems inevitable in the long term.
An automated inspection and selection system removes the costs of manual labor and, more importantly, guarantees that the products are of an objectively high quality.
Is it possible to create a system that objectively measures onion sets through image processing?

There is no simple solution, but with a specially developed LED lighting, a matching camera and a diverse selection of detection algorithms we can deal with this issue.

This report presents to you the results of a research into a representative set of onions. Even though a germinating onion isn't included here, earlier research has shown that it has the same color as the lighter parts of the onion.

News: New version Diamond Tool Measurement software DTM110

October 2015: J.A.I.M.S. introduced new and more accurate measurement software for measuring Diamond Tools based on the proven very accurate version: Diamond Tool Measurement… Diamont Tool
The new version DTM110 measures the radius and waviness of a diamond tip with a higher resolution. It also measures the waviness and width of a facet tip, including the facet and included angle.
Camera settings as gain, exposure time, gain and frame rate can be changed to optimize for best light intensities.
Measurement settings can be changed to optimize the edge detection of the tool tip.
Changing the measurement, camera and directory settings is only possible by authorized personnal.
The authorization is protected by a password up to 8 levels and up to 10 program levels can separately autorized. Calibration software calibrates the system using a chessboard pattern.
In the this version microscope objectives can freely added, removed or changed by authorized personnal.

    News: Software development of Mid Wave Infra Red Black Plastics Detection

    A lot of shredded recyclable material from e.g. cars and household equipment, contains black synthetic material (black plastics) One of the major problems is to distinguish between different types of these black plastics. Using a MWIR Spectrograph combined with a FLIR camera (3000nm-5000nm) it should be possible to distinguish between different types of black plastics. J.A.I.M.S. created a test setup and developed an algorithm to distinguish between 5 types of black plastics.
