EasyScan+ C: High performance - low investment
The EasyScan+ was developed to feed one or two optimizing cross-cut saws. However, it can also be used in simple sorting applications. The simple design and proven sensors, combined with the user-friendly automatic camera positioning, guarantee consistently optimal picture quality. The robust design with its compact frame ensures stable and reliable board transport.
Simple optimization is the key to efficient production. The high-performance optimization software allows a variety of qualities and zones to be created and combined into multiple end products. The products and qualities are stored in a database and can be selected at any time via drag and drop. The logical user interface of the scanner simplifies settings in a visual way providing simple operation for all.
With its various sensor options, the scanner can be adapted to customer requirements, guaranteeing ideal results every time. Whether hardwood or softwood, window scantlings or glulam, profiles or panels, furniture production or cladding boards, this scanner allows you to achieve optimal results every time.

The sensors: The key to success
All sensors are ideally protected by a dust-proof housing. Our laser cameras are installed in every system as standard. With the fastest speed available on the market, these guarantee a high resolution and optimal results. Performance is continually improving through continuous development of this industrial sensor system. This technology detects defects such as knots, pith, cracks, etc. A sophisticated laser system also reliably detects 3D surface defects, such as holes and wane.
In addition, optional color cameras improve the scanner's detection. Higher resolutions, both in the longitudinal and transversal direction detect color defects, as well as cracks and insect holes, more reliably than ever before. Different versions of the color camera ensure the ideal scanner performance for every application.
Cross-cutting optimization explained simply
Step 1: LuxscanLine scanners are based upon various sensors, such as laser cameras, color cameras and X-ray. Your WEINIG expert will define the right sensors and the best combination of these, matched to the wood species, surface quality and customer requirements. Our objective is to achieve the best possible quality of information for the required application.
Step 2: Image processing is handled by the highly sophisticated OptiCore software. This detects and identifies defects as well as color variations on the board. The ideally adapted sensor data ensures optimal data processing and defect detection.
Step 3: Optimization via the high-performance OptiCore software calculates the best solution during cross-cutting. In doing so, it takes into account the various customer requests and requirements. Based upon the precise board data calculated during image processing, the board is optimized in accordance with the customer’s settings. This allows a virtually unlimited number of qualities and products to be defined. Thus, even a complex product mix can be quickly and simply optimized.
EasyScan+ C layout suggestions
The EasyScan+ C is suitable for one or two cross-cut saws.
OptiLink: Ideal optimization via connected processes.
Using multiple, complex production processes has always been a difficult task. Linking various applications and production lines complicates the flow of information. OptiLink was developed to optimize production management by centralizing the information. With a single access point to all information, just-in-time production is no longer a complex challenge. OptiLink decreases operator errors and reduces the inventory of semi-finished goods. A further benefit is the quick and simple data management with regard to ERP systems. This even allows production of single-item batches thanks to sophisticated statistical functions. Although OptiLink was originally developed purely for linking cross-cut scanners and rip scanners, it is now possible to connect many other cutting-related machines.
Options for extension
Fiber analysis: Maximum cutting accuracy
An essential component of optimizing recovery and value creation is a precise cutting position, particularly with finger jointed products. The "dual scatter" system, comprising a line laser and a dot laser, enables this precision.
Automatic camera positioning and processing of decreasing widths
The automatic camera positioning moves all cameras into the ideal position, thus guaranteeing optimal picture quality and resolution. It also prevents operator error, thus reducing production losses to a minimum.
Front-end scanner: Quality control the easy way
The front-end scanner is installed behind a cross-cut saw. It scans the cut parts from both sides. This allows defects inside the boards, such as pith, to be detected via their contrast. This information is used for subsequent sorting of products for finger jointing or shared profiles and forwarding of these to a new ejector.
ShapeScan: Reliable detection of curvature and warping
The ShapeScan is the ideal option when it comes to detecting a particular curvature and warping as a defect. The cupping can also be optionally measured. The ShapeScan T can calculate the curvature or warping via sensors in the cross conveyor.
Marking station: Marking of cuts and grades
A marking station is the ideal solution for connecting a scanner to one or more existing cross-cut saws if the operator wants to avoid complex mechanization or direct data connection is not possible. Cuts, qualities and twisting is imprinted on each board so that these are forwarded to the saw free from defects.
