The Japanese company Yoshida & Co. invests in Microtec scanner and optimizing cross-cut line from System TM

After several visits between Yoshida, System TM and Microtec, Yoshida decided to invest in an optimizing cross-cut line including a cross-cut saw model Opti-Kap 5003 and a Microtec Goldeneye 300 scanner with X-ray.
Initially, Yoshida & Co. ordered a scanner without X-ray. Still, after a scanner test at the headquarters of Microtec in Brixen they were convinced that a scanner with X-ray was able to detect all the defects necessary in their production. 


The system solution consists of an automatic infeed system Opti-Feed 6000 Vack that takes one layer at a time from the incoming packs. Because of a low quality of wood, each workpiece is trimmed with 300 mm before they are automatically transported to Microtec's Goldeneye 300 Multi-Sensor Quality Scanner with X-ray. This scanner reliably recognizes wood defects and increases the wood utilization.


After scanning, the workpieces are fed into an optimizing cross-cut saw model Opti-Kap 5003 where the workpieces are cut according to the scanning results. Part of the workpieces can be sorted to for example chopsticks and the main part will continue through the moulder to finger jointing and fixed lengths.


The entire process with Yoshida has been a very positive experience and the co-operation between System TM, the Japanese dealer Oki Kikai and Microtec has been very good.

»The whole project went on very well and the cooperation with all the involved companies was a really good experience. We are very happy to be part of this project and to have one more satisfied customer that appreciates our solutions. We are looking forward to a great partnership with both Yoshida and Oki Kikai«
