Intelligent Quality Control


smarti® WS 100 Compact Scanner is an intelligent system for multipurpose quality control of cracks, grain deviation, knots, lack of material, complete board dimensions, color variations, finger joints etc. for wooden boards of various dimensions. The system can be used in an automated line of prefabricated wooden wall or board constructions and in other wood industry applications requiring timber quality control. Innovation combines a high-resolution camera, laser encoders, various sensors, optic and laser three-dimensional reader capable of detecting the smallest defects. Technology is based on a laser triangulation camera combining laser beam data and high definition image. The system then computes a real-time 3D model along with the required feedback on an integrated touch screen display. Software part of the solution is based on the in-house developed artificial intelligence algorithms for machine learning image processing. The system is taught for each client, which parameters are required to be detected and classified.

Advanced Functions


With smarti® WS 100 Compact Scanner we can detect, measure and evaluate knots, cracks, lack of material, dimensions of wooden boards, classify colors and grain deviation. We can support very high production line speeds, while high quality images are taken automatically and the accurate data is presented. Boards with imperfections are separated for further inspection down the industrial line. Quality of the timber can be determined in percentage for each parameter separately, which is the important data for the further machinery actions. For the finger joints, location is presented and calculated clearly within the software interface, so any possible side shifts or imperfect matching of the joint can be detected immediately. Any possible knot, crack, lack of material etc. in the wood is recognized and evaluated. Edge of the board is also detected and recognized automatically. Slope of the edge and quality are determined autonomously as well. Wooden board length, width and height are also presented and evaluated by the system.

Adaptable Features


smarti® WS 100 Compact Scanner can be integrated in any part of the production line, due to our adaptability with measurements. We can scan different types of wood, while maintaining the quality of the scans. With that mentioned, we can also develop scanning solutions for different kinds of parameters e.g. special finger joints, specific knots, grain deviation, colors etc., utilizing our smarti® WS 100 Compact Scanner to the maximum. Our scans are very precise and are providing accurate results with every try. smarti® WS 100 Compact Scanner in conjunction with specially developed software solution recognizes any imperfections regarding customer specific requirements and parameters. Feedback about joint quality is sent to the automated production line. Boards without imperfections are sent into further production process, while boards with any imperfections are separated from regular industrial line, where they are examined by qualified personnel.

Done Properly


Glue problems in finger joint applications have also been taken into consideration. We can notice imperfections regarding glue that is binding the boards together. An important aspect that can normally cause problems with joint scanning. Special types of glue are usually used as a binding material, which can sometimes leak out of the joint area. This problem is solved by an extensive database and artificial intelligence background with custom developed algorithms that can determine the actual state of the joints and then send the optimal feedback to the production process. This is one of the features that separates us from the competitive products available on the market today.
