Panel Width Optimizer
The Ulti-Sizer Scanning System quickly measures random width strips and provides panel build-up solutions for high speed panel glue-up operations or for operations needing solutions for wide panels.
Scanning is based on line lasers at high angles being read from USB based array cameras. As many as 34 staves are measured at any time for each panel solution. Final solutions within +/- 050" up to 40" wide panels. The final stave groups are kept together and fed to a customer supplied glue wheel.
Heavy duty air-operated stops resist dust and debris while maintaining quick and consistent operation.
Chain driven gravity rolls drive the strips to and from the stop and scan area. Rollers are grouped very close together for parts down to 9" long. As many as 15 panels a minute 14" long can be achieved.
