Error free evaluation and optimal cutting schemesIn standard production, it is not possible for every employee to assign an optimal cutting plan for each piece of timber, given the high number of products, potential cutting schemes and a very short time interval. On the other hand, a scanner combined with an X-ray can always evaluate material equally, providing error free and quality production. Right after primary cutting, wood material continues on a conveyor line to a cleaning machine. This process is crucial since it ensures highly efficient and accurate scanning and evaluation of the wood. A unique scanner then uncovers wood defects such as different types of knots, cracks, pith, sap, insect deterioration, rot and bark. Since product portfolios vary substantially, defect types and parameters can be specified according to particular needs. An integrated X-ray defines defects based on their density and determines their depth.
