Addressing Food Process Industry Hardware Needs: A Collaboration Case Study

The recent collaboration between a food production software company, and Teguar, a leading provider of industrial computing solutions, epitomizes the innovative approaches being taken to address hardware needs. This case study describes the process from problem identification to the successful implementation of a tailored solution, emphasizing Teguar's pivotal role in supplying industrial computers for industry specific applications.


Specializing in the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies for sorting and foreign material detection of food products, the company identified a critical gap in the market for durable technology hardware. These production environments, characterized by their harsh conditions, necessitate equipment that not only endures but also integrates seamlessly into existing workflows without necessitating operational modifications. 

Problem Definition

The challenge faced involved finding hardware capable of sustaining the environmental rigors inherent in food production settings. The ideal solution needed to operate flawlessly amidst extreme conditions, including:

  • exposure to water,
  • varying temperatures,
  • and the potential for physical contact with food products and cleaning agents. 

Solution Development

In their search for a reliable hardware partner, the company reached out to Teguar, who has a wide range of stainless steel wash-down computers designed specifically for such challenging environments. Teguar’s offerings promised seamless integration with the software company’s clients' existing procedures, eliminating the need for any systemic adjustments. For this application, it was essential to mount the device on a swing arm and route the cable inside the arm. Teguar offers stainless steel units specifically designed for various mounting and cabling configurations, including VESA, Yoke, Swing Arm, cable gland, and M12.


A collaborative process developed, marked by a close working relationship between the software company and Teguar. The supply of demo units facilitated a comprehensive evaluation phase. The focal point of this collaboration was the necessity for hardware featuring dual LAN ports, enabling interfacing with essential sensors on the production lines. 


The result of this partnership was that the client chose Teguar’s TSC-5010 cable gland units. These were specifically chosen for their compatibility with the clients' mounting infrastructure needs and their robustness in adverse conditions.  

The client provided positive feedback, expressing satisfaction with a notable reduction in customer support calls concerning hardware issues. This outcome underscores the reliability and efficiency of the TSC-5010 units. This outcome shows the value of investing in high-quality, durable computing solutions in the food and beverage industry context.
