CombiScan+ S – sorting at the highest level
WEINIG renews its engagement in the area of high performance scanners for sorting with the S version of the LCombiscan+ LuxscanLine. The variable software and hardware options within the scanner represent a piece of wood technology. Through the different sensor options the scanner can be matched to the needs of the customer, continually providing the optimal results. Hardwood or softwood, colour sorting or sorting for panels, profiled or rough products. With the Combiscan+ S you are prepared for the future.
- High productivity from the automated defect recognition
- Reduction in personnel costs, as the labour intensive manual sorting is replaced
- Increase in yield as the defect recognition of the scanner is far above that of manual sorting
- 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
- Matching quality at all times means less chance of complaints
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 four sides. What is interesting here is the four-sided detection of three dimensional characteristics such as wane. 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. This is just a further example of current WEINIG high-technology. With this you are always prepared for future developments and challenges.
