Automatic patching system

The patented “woodFIX” patching system allows automatically milling out defects and inserting wood patches. The position and type of defect can be automatically determined by scanner systems or manually defined by an operator.


In conjunction with a scanner system for determining defects and their positions, users achieve a continuous and objective quality assessment based on defined criteria and thus a consistent quality of the final goods.


Our scope of supply includes:


  • Handling equipment to move the timber through scanning or assessment stations
  • Positioning systems for the handling of the timber at the automatic patching system
  • “woodFIX” automatic patching system as robot or processing portal complete with tool change systems and wood patch deployment
