IS-2020-0045 VisionSystemDesignAward

Their Scorpion 3D Stinger Food Safe Scanner (3D Cameras) and the Scorpion 3D Stinger for Pallet Sorting (Vision Systems) was recognized by a panel of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies.

Thor Vollset – CEO and founder of Tordivel says :

We are extremely proud to be honored by Vision System Design this year. Our long term strategy has resulting in a unique cutting-edge 3D Foodsafe Scanner that is easy to deploy in food industry, fish farming or in any other industry. It is proven and designed to excel on massflow inspection and robotics applications on a running conveyor. It is Made in Norway.  The Vision System Award underlines Tordivel as the company that provide everything: Neural Computers, complete bespoke optical systems, encoder interface, SMARTio, Scorpion Vision Software and the actual system itself.  The Scorpion Stinger menu starts with Classic 2D and 3D processing, the best calibration. The main course is 2D scanning, 3D Scanning and 3D Stereo Vision. The dessert is Neural Inspection or Object Location. The Scorpion Stinger Technology solves the most demanding and challenging application or OEM solution.

Scorpion 3D Stinger Food Safe Scanner (Cameras – 3D). The Scorpion 3D Stinger food safe scanner is a 3D color scanner with integrated light sources, cameras, and I/O in an industrial IP67 rated and food safe IP69K housing. The scanner has high dynamic range for working with low contrast surfaces, frame rates up to 3500 fps, encoder-driven image capture, and targets advanced food quality inspection for robot-based applications running on a conveyor.
