Optimizing Vision Scanning System
With boards staged for edging, the EA3000’s vision scanning system goes into action to optimize every board. The advanced, multi-camera system and software automatically identifies board dimension, shape, color, sap wood, and grade; as well as unwanted visual defects including bark, wane, or knots. The vision-based scanner easily locates bark and other characteristics which is not possible with a geometric scanner. The simple to use industrial computer and windows-based software identifies where the independently movable blades are placed to ensure the highest value final product is produced. The net result is that recovery improves, product value improves and down grade and re-work are reduced. The EA3000 will edge dimensional lumber as well as random widths with the added functionality of setting width priorities. Ready to achieve any cut without complication, a signal is sent to the servo electric drives which move the blades to the intended position.
- Identify board dimension, shape, color, grade, and imperfections
- Optimize every board for highest value or yield
- Make the right grading decisions without an operator
- Set width priorities and achieve any cut without complication
Bottom Line: Make the right grading decision without a skilled operator using the advanced vision system that takes a highly detailed picture of each board, analyzes it for maximize recovery, and positions the saw blades for the highest return.
