How a Robotic Cake Decorator Expanded this Business | Control Design
Hermary’s long-time integration partner, Concept System, was tasked with improving the bakery’s productivity to meet their ever-changing demand. The bakery was originally equipped with 2D cameras that only provided the centre point of the cake. With Hermary’s SL-1880s mounted on FNAUC’s robotic arms, the production line can decorate cakes that are not identical. The use of 3D machine vision captures the height information, which gives the robots a unique path for each cake. The newly retrofitted cake production line allows the bakery to process up to 40 cakes per minute. Not only does it increase the throughput, but it also frees up space on the factory floor. The system also allows the bakery to expand product lines without having to add new equipment.

Industry Partners Contribute to Student Learning in Wood Processing | UBC branchlines
Hermary teams up with long-time channel partner, MPM, and Optimill to give students of UBC’s Faculty of Forestry a rare, behind-the-scenes look on how sawmills operate. For years, Hermary’s 3D machine vision has played a critical role in enabling automation in North America’s wood processing. The students were able to have a unique learning experience from local businesses that showcase their expertise in industries they aspire to work in. Read the full article here.
Maintaining Consistency | Canadian Wood Products
Based in Maine, Pleasant River Lumber took the economic downturn to add more optimization and vision technology to the mill. Having worked with Autolog before, an automation integrator based in Quebec, Pleasant River Lumber turned to them to maximize the facility’s improvement. Autolog incorporated Hermary’s DPS-824CV scanners, which output both 3D geometric and colour scans of the log. The scanners were mounted transversely using an existing setup. The ease of installation prevented the mill from any downtime. The scanners replaced human inspection and helped identify any unqualified lumber from being shipped out of the mill. The family-run mill turned the labour-intensive process around with Hermary’s machine vision technology.
