Combiscan+ R – Intelligent Ripping
Combiscan+ R – Rip optimization with meaning and intelligence. In the R version of the Combiscan+ LuxscanLine once again increases the efficiency of scanner technology for ripping applications. Two dimensional optimization of the board significantly increases the return from each board. Also, the cross cut optimization is already implemented during the rip optimization. In this instance the cross cut scanner and the rip scanner work hand in hand.
The sensor options are carried over from the successful Combiscan + C, which means that there is also a wide range of sensors and options available for the Combiscan+ R. The crook detection and the module for random width is integrated as standard. Due to the nature of ripping the detection and the optimization is only carried out on the top and bottom surfaces.
- High productivity from the automated defect recognition
- Reduction in personnel costs, as the labour intensive manual positioning and marking is replaced
- Increase in yield as the two dimensional optimisation of the scanner can also calculate later cross cut solutions
- Flexible production, as many different qualities and products can be produced at the same time
- Increase in quality of the end products
- Controlling the quality of the end products according to individual end customers
Modern scanner technology from the WEINIG optimization specialists
The deciding factor in a targeted optimization of the raw material is the optimal detection of the wood characteristics. The features of the individual wood characteristics are different in the way in which they are detected by the various sensors. The scanners modular sensor concept is derived from these factors. Here WEINIG can offer each customer a tailored solution. From the modular construction of the Combiscan+ different sensor technologies can be combined together. Machines can be produced according to the customer demands with the perfect sensor concept and at the same time offering value for money. The installed laser cameras provide recognition of standard characteristics on two sides. Colour characteristics are captured and identified with a high definition colour camera. Not only is the detection of blue stain possible, but also an optimized sorting according to colour characteristics. For example, the lamellas for glulam panels can be classified and sorted before pressing. For characteristics exhibiting a difference in density an xray sensor is used. This provides, by “lighting up” the wood, a glimpse into the heart and classification of the density. Sensors for detecting shape differences, moisture and unmolded areas complete the picture along with the specialist mechanization concept. This provides the scanner, as an optional module, with automatically moving cameras for use in scanning random width boards. This allows for continued, three-dimensional characteristic detection on the edges, even on random widths. This technology is unique in its application. With the offered sensor concepts and the modular construction the Combiscan+ remains future-proof and adaptable to all new demands in the production.
|Opticore – the new benchmark in the world of automated optimization|
Along with the sensors such as laser and colour cameras, xray and crook measurement etc. the software plays the most important part of cross cut optimization. Important here is simple operation, comfort and accuracy. The system should be simple to understand, intuitive to operate and reliable in availability and performance. The new Opticore software ticks all these boxes. The optical and operative side of the software is based on the OptiCom direct software from the DimterLine means the operation of both machines is almost identical. In addition to this Opticore offers the tried and tested optimization structure which allows you to create productions as quickly and easily as you can produce.
Opticore is capable of handling an unlimited number of products and qualities. The simple description of qualities using different zones allows, on one side, for an increase in production and, on the other side, provides the customer the possibility to implement a larger range of diverse products. A more accurate description of the qualities allows production of more specific products. Along with the high accuracy in measurement of the different characteristics these bring about a much more efficient use of the raw materials. The different optimizing modes – optimizing according to value, yield or production targets – make scanning technology all the more interesting. This way production targets can be set which can all be completed at the same time. Production of orders with set piece lists also provides no problems. The shared software platform also provides a synergy effect in controlling the machines. This means even the status of the Opticut stackers during production can be taken into account during the optimization. This is just a further example of current WEINIG high-technology. With this you are always prepared for future developments and challenges.
