The VORTEX Automated Edger uses optical scanning technology to achieve high precision, low waste edging of boards.
The entire edging process is fully automated. First, each board is scanned using image recognition technology. The profile of each board is then analysed by a computer, which decides on the best product to maximize recovery. Decisions are based on both volume recovery and product value.
After scanning, the boards pass through an alignment station, and thereafter
the sawing station, and finally the usable board is separated from the waste.
The V-AE is capable of handling up to 25 boards per minute and is the ideal machine to edge boards coming from the TITAN Resaw.
Patented binary pneumatic sizing achieves any width of cut without
complication. Parallel PLC / computer control systems allow for the machine to be switched over to manual mode with a single button, and online support
allows our technicians to dial into your machine to troubleshoot it remotely.
All in all, a simple robust, automated solution to your edging needs.
