METHODS AND RESULTS OF EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCHES MACHINES FOR AUTOMATIC SORTING EGGS ON THE BASIS OF THE TECHNICAL VISION SYSTEM
This article shows the method and results of experimental RESEARCHES of machines for egg sorting into categories based on size and form using a vision system. The principal difference of the considered machine for automatic sorting of eggs into categories from existing sorting machines is the division of eggs into categories by size and the separation of substandard eggs in the flow. Experimental verification showed that the machine provides the division of eggs in size into four categories and the separation of eggs of irregular shapes and sizes in the flow. The accuracy of separation of eggs into categories depending on the performance. With a productivity of up to two eggs per second, the accuracy of egg separation averages 94.8%., With a productivity of three eggs per second was 87.4%.
