Trimmer Optimizer

NEW SAWMILL TRIMMER SCANNER

The new transverse sawmill optimizer uses the projection of a unique continuous laser line to measure the quality of the fibre and to allow detection and trimming of pieces with soft decay. Furthermore, using uniquely angled sensor and combining multiple differential measurements,the technology is a significant leap in dimensional precision. With both width and thickness accuracy in the +/-0.005 inches range, it is so precise that it allows the upstream monitoring of the sawing process for drift, mismatch, bevel cuts and other primary breakdown defects.

Decay detection

’Made on all four sides and both ends, The scanning allows accurate optimization using detailed and quality images of the fiber with the highest accuracy in the industry. The technology has unparalleled accuracy and allows the best optimization and monitoring of the adjustments of the upstream sawing equipments.

High density readings
The scan density can be set to 1/16 "if necessary;


Permanent and sustainable calibration require a simple annual validation;


Minimum vision components reducing costs and future maintenance.
