Chain wear measurement


The development of a device to measure the elongation of an industrial chain, designed to transport vegetables through an optical sorting system.

The objective of the project is to develop a device that measures the elongation of the transport chain in the optical sorter, a machine designed by Marcelissen to sort vegetables based on size and quality with vision technology. The measurement data needs to be used to calculate new vision parameters, to correct for elongation, and to acquire data for predictive servicing and maintenance.
