We provide vision solutions to leading OEMs in a wide range of industry sectors including: Aquaculture, Food and Beverage, Automotive, Aluminium, Logistics.

For all vision tasks, the software of choice is our own Scorpion Vision Software. Scorpion is an independent, configurable and open software tool for industrial vision. It is ideal for increased automation and improved quality in production output.

Upon request Tordivel will design and deliver a custom 3D machine vision solutions that can be used where in-line 3D measurement or inspection is required.

Scorpion 3D Stinger for Aluminium

Tordivel AS cooperates with machine builders with experience with the aluminium industry. Tordivel pioneered the usage of inline 3D stub alignment in 2005. The systems are based on technology implemented at Hydro Aluminium’s plant at Sunndal, Norway and at Qatalum, Qatar. The third generation systems based on the Scorpion 3D Stinger technology locate the anodes robustly and accurate.

Realtime 3D Neural Robot Vision

3D Robot Vision and Assembly Verification are simplified using Stereo Vision and Neural Networks. The power of AI, neural networks, greatly reduces effort and complexity in conveyor belt picking and assembly verification.

We provide realtime 3D neural robot vision with 100% pick-rate.

Scorpion Robot Vision

A standard system consists of a Scorpion 3D Stinger™ Camera mounted on a robot or over the crate, part or conveyor. The camera is connected to an industrial PC running the Scorpion Vision Software. The software communicates with robots from all major vendors over rs-232 or tcp/ip.

Scorpion 3D Stinger™ captures images, identifies and locates the product and sends the id and 3D location to a picking robot.

Food Inspection

In these industries challenging production environment, we provide manufacturers with reliable inspection, verification and traceability solutions regardless of product size, shape and speed of line.

Fish vaccination

We have provided a range of machine vision solutions for a variety of applications, from product sortation by colour and shape, to identifying defected line items, guidance for robotic pick and place, as well as accurate assembly verification.

Fresh or live products present special challenges for machine vision and automated inspection. Scorpion Vision Software and Scorpion 3D Stinger is probably the market leading technology in this field with a portfolio that includes many innovations, such as automated fish vaccination to accurately identify the fish before safely locating the injection point.

3D Neural Massflow Food Sorter

We have packaged our award-winning Foodsafe 3D Colour Scanner with our 3D Neural Robot Vision. The small footprint with the complete optical system, including projectors and strobing illuminators inside a single enclosure, provides the lowest installation and maintenance cost. This secures the highest pick rates combined with neural 3D inspection and colour grading in the most demanding conveyor mass flow scenarios.

Scorpion Food Colour Grader

Our unique 3D Colour Camera measures the absolute colour of food like chicken breast, fish fillets and meat. The camera meets the highest hygienic standards and regular washdown for a harsh environment.

Our automated colour calibration performed after every washdown secures 100 % robust grading 24/7.
