GreCon SUPERSCAN with innovative illumination system and registered embossing monitoring Fagus-GreCon further increases expertise in surface inspection of fiberboards

Charlotte, NC.  Slim and powerful. With an installation width of only 200 mm along the production line, the new SUPERSCAN finds its place in every wood-based panels production line. This small installation width is possible due to an innovative LED lighting concept.

The SUPERSCAN analyzes the photometric and structural properties of the surface of wood-based panels with high resolution. A detection of low contrast defects, for example folds in decor paper, is possible. Dust and decor shreds do not impair the detection performance, but are classified as pseudo defects and are not taken into account when analyzing the quality.

The SUPERSCAN achieves impressive results in registered embossing monitoring. With registered embossing, the surface structure is embossed by a press plate into the panel with a floor or a furniture board decor pattern. For the best quality appearance, the structure must be precisely positioned on the decor pattern. The SUPERSCAN supports adjusting the press and continuously monitors the synchronicity of structure and decor. Consequently, an early intervention to correct the production process is possible.

GreCon-Performance-Center allows easily analyzing and assessing the processes of all production lines equipped with a SUPERSCAN. Thus, the Performance-Center complements the user-friendly and intuitive operation of the SUPERSCAN praised by the users.

Another step towards digitization of quality assurance has become possible.

The new SUPERSCAN will be presented in operation on the Ligna 2019 in hall 26 Booth No. C42.
