INTELLIGENT SINGLE POINT SENSORS
Trimmer - End Trim Measurement

PROBLEM:
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.

SOLUTION:
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 application.

RESULT:
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.
