PRIMARY BREAKDOWN SOLUTIONS
LOG CARRIAGE 3D
LogView 3D™ is one of Automation & Electronics flagship products which has matured over years of product development. Features include True Shape 3D profile and optimization for full log breakdown of cant and boards for both Hardwood and Softwood Sawmills providing options for MOF (Minimum Opening Face) and BOF (Best Opening Face) whilst considering zone placement for cants and sideboards.
Other features include fast laser profile snapshot every 10 inches (250mm) or 5 inches (every 125mm) with full lineal profile every 1 inch (25mm) along the log length combined with setting on the fly. Advanced features include recovery board feature, Re Scan and manual override, metric or imperial, Log Historian archive of real images for log simulation and remote broadband support along with a full SQL database which includes production, downtime and alarm reports. Setworks interface is to Allen Bradley, Siemens or other PLC for fully synchronized motion control allowing fast and smooth positioning for log taper.
LOG CARRIAGE – LOWER COST CURTAIN SCANNER OPTION….
For smaller mills that do not desire the Capital cost of the more expensive 3D system we offer a lower cost alternate using a light curtain scanner over
One unique feature of our curtain scanner is that it uses a retro reflective sensor that enables the bottom scanner bar to rotate 90 degrees when not in scan mode.
This helps prevent debris build up on the bottom scanner bar which is an inherent problem in earlier generation curtain scanners.
The system runs on the same PLC based Setworks as our 3D system and incorporates a scaled down version of our LogView program to provide log breakdown solution.
AE USA Carriage Controls & Scanning
AE 3D Carriage Scanning
Automation & Electronics have installed control systems on End dogging Carriages in both Softwood and Hardwood Sawmills including applications in the Balsa wood sector.
Systems are integrated to our A&E Setworks controls and incorporate options for manual or 3D Scanning which features skew and rotation positioning for best optimization.
We also offer advanced options for Pith detection and offset dogging applications.
Utilizing various scanning technologies for both X/Y and 3D Scanning we provide control solutions for new and existing loglines which incorporate full log and downstream solutions for Gang Edgers and various other secondary breakdown machines. We have experience with Chipper Canter, Twin and Quadband lines with solutions that consider offset and skew.
We also provide full PLC, Operator Consoles and Motor Control Centres built to USA standards.
As international Integrators we are also willing to work with third technology Optimization partners to provide controls that integrate with full rotation and slew and skew double length infeeds to ensure customers get the optimum performance from their mill.
