Automation & Electronics provides total mill wide solutions throughout the entire sawmill commencing with manual or automatically controlled Debarker automation for continuous log feed to the plant.
Interfaces including wireless control from the Log Loader and inline safety interlocks can be incorporated into the system which can be controlled by a local PLC or remotely from the Primary breakdown operator control system.
Many of our systems are interfaced with light curtain X/Y or 3D Scanning to provide the mill with accurate information about log input production.
Having good information about production is essential to every modern sawmill or Log Merchandizer. Automation & Electronics X/Y and 3D Trueshape Scanning systems provide your mill with the information you require for understanding exactly how the mill is performing.
Our Scanning systems utilize high speed Ethernet communications to continuously update and profile logs as they enter the mill. We can also define log sort or destination and reject by diameter sweep or profile defect.
We select the right Scanner for the right application from various leading Scanner manufacturers around the world and to date have integrated our software with sensors from ScanMeg, LMI, Hermary and JoeScan to name a few.
A comprehensive SQL database is provided which includes information such as diameter; sweep; bow; SED (Small End Diameter), LED (large End Diameter) and length along with Production information reports such as Volume, Shift, downtime etc.
Some systems also include interface into Sonic testers such has Hitman, Agrader and Calibre for density information about the log.
