Wanescan Secondary Breakdown Optimizer is MiCROTEC’s proven solution for full-profile wane scanning, recognizing all dimensional irregularities, slabs and uneven edges of lumber to return an exact wane profile of the board. The sensors scan each board and record the position, inclination and depth of wane, as well as accurately identify the shape and position of rough edges and saw-step. Working in both linear and transverse transport directions, Wanescan’s scanner modules are installed above and below the conveyor belt, recording both the top and bottom surfaces of lumber.
MiCROTEC’s optimization software considers wane allowances as described by grading agencies and customer-specific product quality requirements, and determines the optimal trimming, ripping or edging solution in a fraction of a second. Subsequent processes are refined and vastly accelerated by the software, guaranteeing improved performance, higher production volumes, larger recoveries and increased resale value of final products.
