Wood Product Inspection Systems

Automatically inspects profile and surfaces of boards and complex contoured wood products for an extensive range of defects and attributes.

FyrEye-2710 systems inspect and measure profiles of linear wood products, such as: moldings, dimension lumber, flooring and tongue-and-groove products in low, medium and high speed linear production processes. Inspections identify, measure and apply the customer's pass / fail criteria to these types of attributes & defects:

    Wood Product Inspection System
  • Chips
  • Gouges and gaps
  • Voids
  • Rips, tear outs
  • Surface patterns and colors
  • Profile shape and dimensions
  • Process malfunctions
  • Lamination Issues
  • Stains
  • Oversized knots
  • Codes and markings

This system will often be used to:

  • Collect/store/provide data
  • Provide a signal to the operator such as on-screen information or an alarm
  • Initiate an automatic rejection process

The FyrEye-2710 is a family of systems, customized to your application and requirements. Here is an example of one system configuration—FyrEye-2710-02. Your particular model will be from the same family, but will have different variations in the equipment and capabilities from what is listed below:

  • Style 30 NEMA 12 CVP (Central Vision Processor) enclosure with vortex cooling.
  • Inspection of 2 flat surfaces for chips, gouges, cuts, holes and other geometric defects and deformities.
  • Fulfills application and performance specification # VAS-2710-02 (copy available). Each application will have its own VAS (Vision Application Spec Sheet).
  • Engineered lighting specialized for solution performance.
  • 2 progressive area scan cameras with NEMA 12 enclosures and window blow-off options.
  • Conditional storage of 150,000 images of rejected defects.
  • Neural Net surface inspection and defect classification.
  • Spreadsheet storage of numerical results.
  • Direct hardware trigger option.
  • 16 discrete inputs/output.
