INTELLIGENT SINGLE POINT SENSORS
Trimmer - End Trim Measurement
Most sawmills without trimmer optimizers do not optimize on end
trimming. Yield can be maximized and improvements made to achieve
more accurate board measurement and reduce understrain.
Using SPR-02 Single Point Sensors measuring board ends (at the
zero lumber line) upstream from the trimmer, delivers exact
measurements of the board. The information is then processed by
the PLC or controlling computer to position the board, using a
shifting fence. The system requires SPR-02 sensors delivering a
true differential picture of the board. Harsh dust, light and
vibration conditions make the SPR-02 sensors perfect for this
Up to a 2 ft. increase in length can be gained by reducing under
trim, delivering increased efficiency with reduced drying and handling
costs, therefore, increased profits.
