Non-Contact Chip Measurement

The particle thickness is an important parameter for the characteristics of finished particleboard.
The ratio of chip surface to volume is the decisive parameter for the effectiveness of glue application.
Both parameters depend on the adjustment of the knife ring flaker and change through wear of the knife protrusion in the knife ring.
Objective measurability of chip quality

Benefits at a glance

  • Measurement of entire chip geometry
  • Specific adjustment of the knife protrusion of the knife ring flaker
  • Reduction of material loss by screening
  • Reduction of glue application
  • Remote support with GreCon SATELLITE

MEASURING METHOD

The chips to be measured are separated by specially matched vibratory conveyors and automatically placed on the measuring conveyor belt. The conveyor transports the chips into the measuring area where they are measured by a line laser including a camera unit without contact for length, width and thickness (height).

SOFTWARE FUNCTIONS AND VISUALISATION

  • The ergonomically designed software based on the Windows operating system allows the operator to easily use the system. The recorded measured values are processed and presented in a clearly structured manner.

  • Data output:

    Characteristics:
    - thickness (min, max, mean, median)
    - width
    - length
    - surface
    - volume

    graphics:
    - Thickness distribution over the particle (thickness, width, length)
    - Distribution functions (based on the characteristic values or their ratio sizes) for the entire sample quantity
    - Volume weighted distribution of all material properties

     

  • The operation is very simple and menu-driven. The operator only needs to enter the limit from which particles are to be detected.

  • wood particles
