Purpose and goal
The project has developed a new compact TDLAS laser platform for production lines within the food industry. The goals have been reached through the implementation of new technologies by new designs of mechanics, electronics and software, which are required to address recent market requirements. The performance of the platform has been evaluated againsted existing solutions with very good results.
Expected results and effects
The newly developed platform within this project is unique in many aspects. Through the user-friendly and compact form factor of the platform, the project has demonstrated not only a better performance, but also that new applications and use-cases are possible for the end users, compared with the present existing solutions. Thus, efforts to fully industrialize the platform has been initiated.
Planned approach and implementation
During the project, several challenges have been handled. These challenges range from technical aspects to the implementation of wishes and requirements from potential end-users into realistic and long-term viable solutions. Through the extensive experiences of the project team from different disciplines, the risks have been minimized in very early phases through continuous verifications during the design phases and regular communications with the targeted end-users to ensure that the correct choices are made in every phase of the project.
