3D imaging is ideal where height, shape or volume is of importance for the production process. However, to make a complete quality or grading decision, it is often necessary to also consider the colour of the parts produced. This is, for instance, common in grading of fruits and vegetables, shape and baking degree verification of baked goods, and fill level and colour verification in beverages. By considering both 3D and colour aspects, more reliable decisions can be made which improve the product quality and reduce waste.
