LS10 Compact Scanner

Intelligent one-side murtipurpose quality control scanner for wooden boards of various dimensions.

Intelligent Quality Control

LS10 lumber compact scanner is an intelligent system for multipurpose quality control of cracks, grain deviation, knots, lack of material, complete board dimensions, color variations, finger joints etc. for wooden boards of various dimensions. The system can be used in any wood industry application requiring quality control of wood. Innovation combines a high-resolution camera, encoders, various sensors, optic and laser three-dimensional reader capable of detecting the smallest defects. Technology is based on a laser triangulation camera combining laser beam data and high definition image. The system then computes a real-time 3D model along with the required feedback on an integrated touch screen display. Software part of the solution is based on the in-house developed artificial intelligence algorithms for machine learning image processing. The system is taught for each client, which parameters are required to be detected and classified.

Advanced Functions

With LS10 lumber compact scanner we can detect, measure and evaluate knots, cracks, lack of material, dimensions of wooden boards, classify colors and grain deviation. We can support very high production line speeds, while high quality images are taken automatically and the accurate data is presented. Quality of the wood can be determined in percentage for each parameter separately, which is the important data for the further machinery actions. We can control the line machinery for sorting and grading, cutting rtc. For the finger joints, location is presented and calculated clearly within the software interface, so any possible side shift or imperfect matching of the joint can be detected immediately. Any possible knot, crack, lack of material etc. in the wood is recognized and evaluated. Edge of the board is also detected and recognized automatically. Slope of the edge and quality are determined autonomously as well. Wooden board length, width and height are also presented and evaluated by the system.

Adaptable Features

LS10 lumber compact scanner can be integrated in any part of the production line, due to our adaptability with measurements. We can scan different types of wood, while maintaining the quality of the scans. With that mentioned, we can also develop scanning solutions for different kinds of parameters e.g. special finger joints, specific knots, grain deviation, colors etc., utilizing our LS10 compact scanner to the maximum. Our scans are very precise and are providing accurate results with every try. LS10 compact scanner in conjunction with specially developed software solution recognizes any imperfections and classifes wood regarding to customer specific requirements and parameters. Scanner feedback is sent to the automated woodworing machinery on the production line.

Built for Heavy Industrial Requirements

LS10 lumber compact scanner is built from durable structure that is able to support all heavy industrial needs. The stand is firm and vertically adjustable, depending on the conveyor belt configuration. All of the advanced components are completely enclosed in a high-quality housing, which is completely dust and particle proof. The terminal is a center of all computing power and a unit that provides valuable feedback via the integrated touch screen. All the materials used are providing a long-lasting solution without any compromises. Any required maintenance or service work will also be done easily due to our innovative design providing simple access to the core of the solution.

Done Properly

Our one sided scanning solution is regularly used for finger joint quality scanning. Therefore, we have also developed advanced scanning features regarding finger joints. We can notice imperfections regarding glue that is binding the boards together. An important aspect that can normally cause problems with joint scanning. Special types of glue are usually used as a binding material, which can sometimes leak out of the joint area. This problem is solved by an artificial intelligence background with custom developed algorithms that can determine the actual state of the joints and then send the optimal feedback to the production process. For finger joint applications, we can also detect side shifts, different board heights, joint spacing, cracks etc.
