Brad Wallace April 15, 2015 Gov't Supports Wheat Research at the University of Manitoba Brad Wallace April 15, 2015 Okay - it's actually not wheat but what you make with wheat and how you make it. Still, its kind of neat work. Over half of Canada’s wheat exports are used to manufacture Asian-style noodles. Dr. Martin Scanlon at the University of Manitoba and his research team are working with manufacturer VN Instruments Ltd. to develop a prototype acoustic sensor system that will make rolling sheet manufacturing processes more efficient. In addition, the Canadian International Grains Institute will provide Dr. Scanlon and his team access to a functional pilot-scale noodle manufacturing line to test the acoustic sensor system. The system will initially be applied to measure the properties of noodle dough sheets.
