Detecting various types of wood in several shapes and sizes in woodworking machines with ultrasonic sensors
Through a horizontal saw of woodworking machines, various types of wood pass in all kinds of colors, sizes and conditions. Think of beams, tree trunks, shell parts with bark, wet and dry wood, dark or light colored. The application and the method of transport of the product does not allow horizontal detection to take place here, detection from the bottom is also not an option. An ultrasonic sensor offers the solution here. The very good background suppression of our ultrasonic sensors and the complete color insensitivity ensure that all types of wood are detected. The sensor's reproducibility of the switching position is high, so that the saw always cuts the product at the correct position.
