Since 1911, Fagus-GreCon has created and applied innovative technology to maximize production. Our goal remains to assist our customers by providing technologically advanced equipment to ensure safer facilities, optimized production, and verifiable product quality to their customers.
Headquartered in Alfeld, Germany, GreCon offers global service, the latest in research and development, and has distribution capabilities from regional companies and multiple agents around the world, including GreCon, Inc., the North American headquarters based in Tigard, Oregon.
Manual inspection is replaced by the SUPERSCAN system. This ensures a continuous and constant quality control; the parameters used to make a decision remain constant.
Depending on the end product, different measures that are necessary for the further processing of the panels can be taken.
Surface Inspection System
- SUPERSCAN SPM & SPL — inspect furniture panels & laminate flooring
All panels will be compared with the master. New patterns like coated sheets, wood pattern, and tile structure can be learned within a very short time. GreCon offers a panel marking system, which marks the defective areas by spraying fluorescent ink on the press size panel, then after the saw only the individual defective boards are sorted out.
- SUPERSCAN SPR — for two-sided inspection of raw panels
The automatic image processing system guarantees 100 % inspection and allows for consistent sorting by detection of surface faults and defects of raw panels. The SUPERSCAN SPR system inspects the surface of each panel in the production line to ensure consistent sorting. Detailed conclusions for upstream production process adjustments are possible through fault and statistics reports. Each panel is inspected by a camera system on the top and bottom surfaces.
- FIBERVIEW — for one-sided inspection of fiber sizes
Inspects the fiber quality and identifies the number and size of shives, thus ensuring a continuous, consistent spread fibers in MDF panel production. Monitoring of tolerance limits, reports and statistics allow for detailed conclusions of the upstream production process. The fiber mat is inspected by a camera system after the pre-press across a width of about 400 mm. The shives are automatically detected and classified by three image processing steps.
Laser Thickness Gauge
- DML 6000 precise measurement of material thickness using laser technology
Raw material usage, rejects, and waste can be reduced while providing verifiable quality control documentation to the customer.
Determine exact thickness dimensions inline for immediate adjustments to production. The DML Laser Thickness Gauge non-contact measurement system is suitable for measurement of hard and soft surface and solid sheet products.
Inline Blow + Delamination Detection
- UPU 6000 ultrasonic bond analyzer to detect defects and internal blisters
Finding wood based panel blow or delamination and bonding defects can be accomplished using the GreCon Inline Delamination Detection system. With this ultrasonic measuring system producing high quality wood based panels are at an optimized cost. Board blisters can be avoided due to the integrated blow detection system.
Spark Detection and Extinguishing Systems
- BS 7 Offer Safety for Your Production
Detect the ignition source and extinguish it before it causes a fire or dust explosion.
GreCon spark detection and extinguishing systems can reduce your risk by detecting and extinguishing sparks and embers before they reach the dust collector, filter, or silo. Spark detection is a preventative measure against the early causes of fires or explosions.
