System TM managed to win the order of a high-speed moulder line to Chugoku Lumber Co. in Japan. System TM designed the system solution and implemented Microtec scanning equipment in the line. The solution from System TM is a high-speed moulder line for finger joint and glued laminated boards, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The line consist of an automatic infeed system, a heavy duty Opti-Feed 6000. The infeed system is with continuous feed, ensuring that a pack is always ready on the conveyor belt to be fed to the line.
The workpieces are high-speed single-piece fed to a stud carrier that consist of a moisture meter, a Curvescan from Microtec, an automatic out sorting of workpieces for finger joint, a high-speed board turner and a multi head cross-cut saw model MK2, that cuts the workpieces in very exact lengths.
The workpieces that are sorted for finger joint are stacked continuously and the packs are either transported to storage or destacked and fed to a finger jointing line.
The cut workpieces are transported through a Viscan from Microtec before being distributed between two moulders that are running different dimensions. After each moulder, an operator quality sorts the moulded workpieces and they are sorted between two automated Opti-Stack 3000 stacking systems. The line consist of four Opti-Stack 3000 in total.
