From wooden boards to a wardrobe with the help of sensors
There are many areas of application for sensors in furniture production. They are used to reliably detect a wide variety of materials and surfaces, thereby positioning parts exactly for processing or mounting, to name just a couple of examples. Throughput times can be minimized and system utilization can be optimized in this way. Elaborate safety sensor technology also makes it possible for whole process sections to run reliably and for intralogistics tasks to be automated.
Sensor-supported processing enables maximum yield
Solid wood is a natural material which can never generate two exactly identical pieces. Leuze electronic sensor systems, however, can deal with these "deviations" e.g. in the surface, structure or color and also detect, identify or position parts reliably. This allows valuable material to be utilized in the most efficient manner possible and minimize waste.
High process reliability and dependable material tracking
In the automated processing of face plates, sensor technology from Leuze electronic is used to monitor material flow and detect errors early on. This is how our sensors ensure high system availability and assure end product quality. Safety sensors are also utilized here to safeguard material logistics as well as processing centers.
From an untreated trunk to finished veneer
The production of real wood veneer means absolutely precise work. Sensors from Leuze electronic can help to automate, optimize and monitor these processes. Sensors are thereby used as often in the identification of raw materials as in quality assurance during running operation or in the safeguarding of danger areas in and on the machine.
Optimal use and high availability in rough environments
For processing efficiently round timber in the rough and dusty environment of a saw mill, it is essential to measure and position the trunks optimally in order to produce as little waste as possible when cutting. Sensors from Leuze electronic can aid in these tasks, and are helpful and reliable in the safeguarding of danger areas in feeding zones and of the saw itself without interrupting material flow.
Smooth processes thanks to exact measurement
Only exact measurement and positioning make it possible to increase clock cycles in the processing and logistics of round timber without compromising quality. Large distances to the object, unfavorable reflection properties of the material and rough environmental conditions place increased demands on the sensor technology used.
