Sortieren EN Sorting

Maximum wood protection

Careful material handling and space saving

BUFFER LEVEL SORTER

Use of a buffer level sorter always makes sense where timber should be sorted with as much care as possible, but the sorter should not require excessive space. Nevertheless, the space required by a buffer level sorter is greater than that for a box sorter, as an emptying section must be provided after each level. As the timbers in the levels lie loosely on top of each other and need to be separated prior to filling and after emptying, this sorter is only conditionally suitable for planed workpieces.

Ideal for planed workpieces

FILM LAYER SORTER

A film layer sorter takes up a lot of space, as the levels are arranged one above the other. However, it is ideal for careful sorting of classified planed timbers, as each board film lies individually in the levels and need not be separated again after emptying. This enables subsequent stacking of the layers and a maximum stacking capacity.

Timber product assortment

IDEAL LAYER LENGTH

The number of assorted products determines the number of levels, and the required length of a level is determined by the cross-sectional size of a package. Filling and emptying of the levels occurs fully automatically in each case.

Separation of single and multiple packages

High performance and a high cycle rate

TILT DESTACKING

For separating single and multiple packages with and without intermediate sticks upstream of planing and sorting systems. The packages are received in a transverse direction by a lifting unit, pivoted through approx. 45° and conveyed on to the skid edge. Layer by layer, the timber pieces now slid over a skid edge (which can be flexibly adjusted) to even out distortions in the layer.

TILT DESTACKING OF DOUBLE PACKAGES

Tilt destacking of double packages can halve setup times, minimising production costs as a result. The intermediate strips in double packages can be removed with the aid of a stick stripper (optional) and collected and sorted for further use or disposal.

Careful and gentle at a medium cycle rate

VACUUM DESTACKING

VVacuum suckers lift the topmost layer of a package and deposit it gently in a transverse direction on the conveyor. This careful handling is particularly suitable for avoiding surface damage to planed workpieces. The vacuum destacker is suitable for production lines with short to medium cycle rates.

Entstapeln_Vakuum

Longitudinally and transversely at a low cycle rate

PUSH-OFF DESTACKING

This destacking involves pushing the uppermost layer of a package to the downstream process. Pushing can occur in a transverse or longitudinal direction, depending on the space requirement. This destacker is used on production lines with a low cycle rate.

Continuity at high speed

Classified according to quality

FEEDING: Sorters

Before timber box or level sorters can be added, single item or mixed classification must first be realised according to dimensions and quality. This is aided by warping meters, moisture analysers and wane and quality scanners. Individually assessed sticks or boards are then conveyed on for sorting using a single feed unit or rejected.

Efficient and flexible

Filling at a high cycle rate

INCLINED BOX SORTER

Inclined box sorters are generally used in high-performance productions, as they can be filled at a high cycle rate of up to 160 pieces/min. They ensure reliable emptying of material and are therefore particularly recommended for sorting main boards with large material dimensions.

Boxensortierung, Sortierung_Schraegboxen

Sorting with a restricted space requirement

VERTICAL BOX SORTER

Use of a vertical box sorter can be sensible in confined space conditions, as vertical boxes need less space than inclined boxes and can accommodate more product boxes in the same area. Vertical boxes are mainly used for sorting side boards, as the box geometry makes emptying difficult and is not suitable for large material dimensions. The emptying direction can be suitably adapted to optimise the material flow. Vertical boxes are filled at a cycle rate of 120 pieces/min.

IDEAL VOLUME

The number of timber products determines the number of boxes. A box should ideally correspond to the volume of a stacked package, with the height of the boxes corresponding to the package cross section.

STACKING: Shipping packages

Stacking of timber (including in multiple lengths) can be realised with stacking tongues or vacuum lifters, with the timber being collected in layers and deposited layer by layer on the shipping package to be formed. Shipping strips can be laid between several layers to stabilise the shipping package. Strip laying is automatic. Where necessary, the shipping package is stabilised additionally through final strapping. Squared timbers can be optionally included on the package underside, and the packages can be pressed hydraulically together if desired. Customers who do not wish to have stabilising strips (e.g. because the package only needs to be transported within the company) may avail of offset stacking.

Stapeln-Versandpaket

Effective air circulation, thanks to dry sticks

STACKING: Drying packages

Wooden sticks are laid between each layer when stacking timber that is still damp in drying packages. The intermediate sticks ensure adequate air circulation during drying and accelerate the drying process. The drying sticks are laid by stick magazines.
Option: Workpieces of different widths can also be stacked with spacing with the aid of a servo slide.

Bündeln EN Bundling

Greater stability during handling

BUNDLING: Sticks and boards

Bundling involves the joining of individual timbers to form a compact bundle. Bundles are easier to handle and have a greater degree of stability. This is a major advantage when, for example, stacking or during transportation. Between 8 and 11 bundles can be automatically strapped every minute, depending on the bundle dimension. A labelling option is available, either on individual boards or on the complete timber bundle.

UNSCRAMBLING WITH AND WITHOUT SINGLE FEED UNIT

Immediately after a sawing line or tilt destacking, it is often necessary, to separate the workpieces that arrive in a batch in order to form a material film/carpet from which they are then transferred individually or in layers to the next processing step. Depending on the required number of pieces and the material cross-sections, different technologies are used for separation or layer formation.
