New developments. Among the most relevant novelties is RuScan lumber quality and geometrical parameters scanner with trimming optimization function. This system is designed for lumber sorting lines operating at speeds from 60 to 180 boards per minute.
Scanner is designed to work in automated log sorting lines for contactless determination of the thickness, width and wane of the board. The thickness measurements are effected by laser triangulation distance sensors, width measurements - by impulse signals of encoder. The control unit processes the sensor signals and gives to the control system the information about board’s cross-section. Configuration and calibration of scanner are made by special software.
Scanner includes control unit, laser triangulation sensors of distance - 2 pcs., cables, incremental encoder, configuration software to set scanner, documentation.
Main technical characteristics:
Measurement of board section in one place along the length of the board.
