  • Deadline completed
    The submission process for new proposals is closed. Proposals submitted before the deadline will follow the standard evaluation process.

Desired outcome

As a pureplayer of the transformation of the vegetables, we are looking for a method to check the cutting efficiency and be able to predict the changes of our blades (in the field during the harvest and in our factories).
This method must be simple to implement in an industrial context without complex tools.


Details of the Innovation Need

A poor efficiency of the vegetables cutting could occur quality problem such as oxydation. Until now, we defined a frequency of changing and/or sharpening of our blades. But depending of the raw material quality this frequency could not well fit.

We are looking for methods able to measure the state of the cutting or of the blades. This method could be direct measuring the right cut of the vegetables or indirect measuring the state of the blades.
