Advanced color sorting lines

Videometer and Kopenhagen Fur have developed a system for automated color sorting of mink. Color of mink is a very challenging task even for expert human sorters. Both hair color and wool color has to be assessed from a single image acquisition. There are very high requirements regarding accuracy and reproducibility. Hair length, hair density, and hair positioning must have minimal impact on the color measurement. The automated system is using the VideometerLine vision technology. Kopenhagen Fur has had Videometer spectral imaging systems running 24/7 during the season on eight lines since 2002.
