The VolScan Profiler is a pioneering volume measuring instrument for commercial bakeries. It is a bench-top, laser-based scanner that measures the volume of bread and bakery products up to maximum dimensions of 600mm length and 380mm diameter with the VSP600, and 300mm length and 190mm diameter with the VSP300.
Rather than assessing the volume alone, as with seed displacement methods, the VolScan Profiler has the ability to automatically calculate many critical baking parameters. Our bread volume testing product enables rapid 3-dimensional digitization of products, the results of which may be processed mathematically to yield detailed information for immediate use or future retrieval.
The VolScan Profiler uses a non-contact measurement method and therefore offers considerable advantages over contact and displacement alternatives, particularly for the 3-dimensional assessment of soft, freshly baked products.
