  • Goldeneye 600 Multisensor Quality Scanner
    Rip optimization and panel repair...

  • Repair panel defects & optimize ripping

    Goldeneye 600 Multi-Sensor Quality Scanner scans large boards and panels up to 1.8 meters wide. Geometric, visual as well as X-ray Multi-Sensor cameras and sensors determine the real value of lumber, including their internal properties. The scanner detects and localizes all types of knots, as well as cracks, discoloration, pitch pockets, bark, pith, wane, distortion, and other dimensional defects. Goldeneye 600 offers two types of applications, namely for sawmill as well as repairing machinery.

    Rip Optimization for sawmill
    Goldeneye 600 Rip/Edger Optimization Multi-Sensor Quality Scanner can be used for ripping/edging of green or dry lumber. The scanner processes each board property and wood defect on the surface and/or internally by the X-Rays. The optimizer will get the best optimization solution to maximize the final virtual rip&chop solution for customer production by considering all possible combinations from the activated product list. Microtec Rip Optimization allows optimizing ripping according to the highest quality and value of the single board.

    Defect Repair Solution for wood panels
    Microtec Goldeneye 600 provides the best system for grading and repairing panels of different wood species and different levels of finishing. Size and position of each defect can be determined precisely, also providing significant savings on putty consumption. After the boards are scanned, they are transferred to a defect repair station. Each defect is routed and filled according to the most efficient movement path of the patching robot. Different processing units mill, glue and repair the respective defects according to scanner specifications. Microtec defect repair solution allows you to achieve a constant quality on your board surface.
