|Description||Front-end scanner: Quality control the easy way
The front-end scanner is typically installed behind a cross-cut saw. It scans the cut parts from both sides. This allows defects inside the boards, such as pith, to be detected via their contrast. This information is used for subsequent sorting of products for finger jointing or shared profiles and forwarding of these to a new ejector. This reduces revisions and maximizes recovery. The front-end scanner can be retrofitted with existing scanner systems. Use with cross-cut saws with manual marking is also possible.
Method : while the board is moving laterally, the system grabs an image from the front end of the board. The grain orientation is computed and the heartwood position is estimated. This enables sorting according vertical grain (“rift”), diagonal grain (“half rift”), flat grain (“flader”) . Moreover, curve of the cross section may be measured.
