Contact Information



Spectra is a high-performance, in-line solution for detecting plastics and other soft foreign materials on poultry meat. Its in-flight double-sided hyperspectral imaging way surpasses the human visual range. Spectra performs a near 360° surface scan during the free fall of the poultry meat with the same technology used by NASA for space exploration. The hyperspectral sensors are connected to an intelligent algorithm to detect and discard contaminated meat.
