Online Measurement of Panel Geometry
helps to evaluate the geometry of finished panels during production. The length, width and diagonal can be accurately measured and calculated. Using this method trimming and cross-cutting can be optimized and cut-offs minimized. Used is laser technology. Two 100mm [4”] wide detectors with high resolution scan the sideways panel edges. For the measurement of various panel widths these sensors can be adjusted across the production line by a motor drive.
Two more laser sensors are located inside the production line to detect the incoming panel edge and the end of the panel. Herewith the length will be measured.
|Accuracy:||Width: +/- 0,5mm [0.02”]
Length: +/- 3,0mm [0.12”]
Two adjustable laser sensors allow to measure panels of various widths.

Two lasers (red) measure the panel length in two tracks. In combination with a laser (green) the conveying speed is measured. Both adjustable lasers (blue) scan the edges. Out of this information the diagonals and the perpendicularity will be evaluated.
- Panel width
- Panel length
- Panel diagonals
- Adjustable to various panel widths
- No stopping of panel
- Interfacing to PLC and process control
- Compensation of variable conveying speed
Veneer cannot be measured.
