Active curve chipping and circularsaw technology for maximal sawn lumber recovery
Resaw systems ArcoChipping+ArcoProfiling+ArcoCircular resaws and ArcoChipping+ArcoCircular resaw+Edger optimizer for value, grade and recovery optimization of all possible sawing patterns
Important for the economic production of lumber is the maximization of recovery with the highest possible productivity and the highest possible sawing accuracy. Modern 3D scanning technology and complex optimization algorithms allow us to compute the highest possible recovery. The resaw process ArcoLine was developed for perfectly controlled execution of the results of the scanning and optimization process.
For the systems ArcoChipping + ArcoProfiling + ArcoCircular resaws and ArcoChipping+ArcoCircular resaw+Edger optimizer the following machines are available for the active controlled curve chipping and curve sawing: Chipper canter model FZ 5 Arco, the profiling unit model Arco FR 16 and the double arbor circular resaw model DWK Arco. The main component of the Arco-Technology is the chipper canter Arco FZ5.
The arco curve radius calculated by the optimization computer is followed by the chipper canter heads with a simultaneous linear movement of the heads and a pivot movement of the canter. During the chipping process, the cant is held on the in- and outfeed chain bed with no sideways movement. The command values of scanning and optimization can be executed along the length of the cant with millimeter accuracy.
