The VBG 2000

The VBG2000 is a beef rib eye vision system installed in the grading cooler.

The system has been developed by and with scientists of the US Meat Animal Research Center, the US meat industry and e+v. The system outputs the marbling, rib eye area, fat thickness, yield grade and meat and fat color. The system has been approved in the US, Canada and Australia and is used in other countries like Mexico, Argentina, Kazakhstan and Russia as well. Approximately 95% of the North American fed cattle are graded with this system today. Over the last 15 years hundreds of million cattle have been analyzed with the VBG2000.

Based on industry demands, the system continuously gets further developed and upgraded to new versions. E.g., a first method has been developed to grade Wagyu cattle.

The VBG 7L

The VBG 7L is a new upgrade of the approved instrument what projects 7 laser lines on the rib eye to measure potential ribbing and placement errors to ensure better data capture in day-to-day operation.


The VBG smart is a new cell phone camera vision system for smaller clients and customers without stationary grading stands and/or not enough space. The system captures the rib eye images and sends the images to an external device for image processing using the approved software algorithms for all grading elements.

The VBG Robot

The VBG robot is a development project in cooperation with the US beef industry for a full automated grading camera solution. A 3D vision system is measuring the location of the rib eye cut in the 3D space and the grading camera is automatically positioned using an industrial robot.
