Grading and measuring stations / board turning unit

Grading stations allow a visual inspection of the goods by the operating staff or scanners with the possibility to assign the proper quality to each board and reject faulty goods before they reach the planer.

 

Grading stations can additionally be equipped with automatic wood moisture meters so that goods with the wrong level of moisture can be (r)ejected upstream of the planer and, if required, subject to further drying. We also integrate systems for strength measurement such as our „mtgBATCH“

 

Installed upstream of the planer, our various automatic board turning units ensure the correct position of each board before it enters the planer.

 

Our scope of supply includes:

 

  • Mechanization for visual grading
  • Mechanization with integrated scanner systems and/or strength measurement
  • Dimension measurement
  • Curvature measurement followed by automatic board turning unit
  • Wood moisture measurement
