VIBE QM3i GRAIN ANALYZER

Grain companies are using the Vibe QM3i as a solution for labor shortages, quality control, and cost savings:
  • Hiring professional inspectors for grain grading and quality inspection was always demanding. Now, post-Covid, it's even harder to find employees to work in shifts in a high-pressure environment with an unpredictable workload. The new inspectors' onboarding time for training takes approximately six months, and the turnaround is high. The Vibe QM3i Grain Analyzer requires an operator with basic skills instead of a trained and experienced inspector, and with a short training session (1-2 hours), he/she will be ready for the job. The analysis speed and simplicity of the software enable any operator on the line to perform the analysis without adding headcount.
  • Human visual inspection for grading is essential for product quality, from the time the crops arrive at the gate, including all steps to finish the goods' shipments out of the factory. Human visual inspection is subjective and introduces an error rate. Commonly, two inspectors will get different results. With digital inspection, the results are absolute and accurate. It helps improve control of the overall quality without adding additional resources.
  • Cost savings comes from different reasons:
    • Operator labor cost vs. an expert inspector​
    • Replacing 20-30 minutes of inspection with 1-2 minutes
    • Flexibility during the night shifts and weekends
    • Paying the right price for the quality received
    • Reducing errors because of subjectivity and sample size
    • Better control of the process, increase yield and save costs
We provide general information for all grain types, along with specific information for each application

One of the key features of the AI-powered Vibe QM3i Grain Analyzer is the speed and accuracy of the results. A 30g sample of rice kernels can be analyzed and reported upon in less than 30 seconds using a simple 3-step process. 

The Vibe QM3i provides grain researchers, traders, and processing companies an ‘expert’ inspection and analysis instrument that overcomes the limitations of subjectivity and speed that are evident in manual inspection methods. 

Furthermore, the superior resolution of the optical system in the QM3i provides higher levels of accuracy and reproducibility of results when compared with other instruments available in the market today.
