The SUPERSCAN SPM/L replaces the manual inspection of panel-shaped materials. This continuous and constant quality control ensures consistent panel quality. The SUPERSCAN SPM/L inspects the surface decor of each panel inline. Defect reports and statistical data allow detailed conclusions of the upstream production process and the product quality. Not only sorting, but the entire production process can be optimized.
- Furniture board: Virtual grid of the complete panel using cut-to-size sections is possible.
- Flooring: Defect allocation of individual planks and marking on the complete panel for one-sided inspection.
- Reliable, objective, complete inspection of press sizecomplete panels
- Quick and automatic learning of new decors
- Detection of optical and topological defects
- Early defect detection reduces customer quality complaints
- Detailed reports on defect location on the panel
- Inspection and marking of the individual panel sections
- Automatic order change through integration into the customer IT
- Monitoring the synchronicity of paper and imprint
The basic construction of the measuring system is a solid, closed frame. Doors allow easy access to individual measuring components. Slight overpressure provides optimum measuring conditions while cooling the light source.
The visualization software of all GreCon measuring systems is based on Windows.
For the data transmission to higher-ranking process control systems, different network connections, such as Profibus, are available.
The core of the software package is the visualisation software. It records, stores and graphically represents all measured data. The simple menu structure, which is identical for all GreCon measuring systems, provides intuitive and user-friendly operation.
The impression of authenticity of laminate, whether wood or floor tiles, is determined by a number of features. For the end user, it is especially important that the optical impression and the haptic feeling leave a convincing overall impression. To achieve this, laminate collections were created that are their natural examples’ equals in these features.
The surface structures, such as the wood grain or the joint structure of the tiles, are generated synchronously to the decor of the laminate flooring. To guarantee an optimum product quality, the monitoring of this synchronism during the running production process is imperative. This was the task that GreCon took care of.
Pressing tools made out of stainless steel, which bear the desired surface structures, press the decors and the carrier panels to one unit.
The result is the end product - the laminate - in its diverse shapes and colours. The required matching of decor and surface structure is a challenge to the accuracy of the fully automatic production, which operates with more and more decreasing cycle times.
The surface inspection system SUPERSCAN of GreCon supplies a solution to ensure a constant accuracy and quality of the laminate.The inspection system automatically determines the translation (displacement) and the rotation of both the decor and the imprinted structure. If these two structures (layers) shift against each other, this will be recognized. The detected changes can be used to optimize the positioning by the upstream layering unit. Panels (laminates) with non-synchronous features (mismatch) are recognized and can be sorted out.
- grey tinge
- paper displacement
- paper folds
- paper scraps
- thermal reams
- topological press plate faults
- overlay faults
- panel abrasion
Most of the mentioned faults and defects can be exclusively and clearly allocated to a special defect type by combining both modules.
- missing overlay
- double overlay
