This non-contact measurement system offers considerable advantages over contact and displacement techniques which purely measure volume. The rapid 3-dimensional digitisation of products enables the automatic calculation of several detailed dimension related parameters, the results of which may be mathematically manipulated for immediate use or future retrieval in a variety of data formats.

With the Volscan Profiler, manufacturers have a precise and fast method for the measurement of the volume of bakery products in order to be able to control and monitor the breadmaking conditions and ingredient performance.
