Lumber sorting

Automation for lumber sorting and trimming

Automation for lumber sorting and trimming

Dimension measurement and grading will guide sorting and loading the bins. Moreover the solution software generates comprehensive production reports, prints out packing notes and transfers the production data to other computer systems of the saw mill.

In lumber sorting as well as in the whole saw mill all the control and supervision of machines and feeders can be implemented using SoftPLC logic control software instead of using the traditional logic control. Then all the measuring and optimizing systems may be very easily integrated with the whole control system of the saw mill.

Inx-Service´s measuring and control solutions can be also integrated with the existing logic control system (e.g. Siemens, Omron or Mitsubishi) via Ethernet with TCP/IP protocol. Then the new system takes care of all the measurement-, calculation- and bin control functions whereas the existing logic control system supervises and controls feeders and conveyors as well as other related equipment.
