PAUL Optimizing Days 2011
The Optimizing Days took place at PAUL’s premises on 12th and 13th July 2011. The South German mechanical engineering company welcomed about 15 interested companies as well as visitors of the local press and trade press on both days. The focus was on a fully automatic optimizing system.
The system processes unplanned boards to preset and finger jointing lengths for the production of window squares in a fully automatic way. The timber packs are transferred by the fork lift truck via a heavy-duty chain conveyor to the vacuum destacker. This removes the sticks and feeds the workpieces to the production line in layers. Then they are planed, detected by a scanner and distributed to two cross-cut lines, where cross-cut stations of the model series C11 do the cutting operation taking into consideration the optimization results from the scanner software. Accumulated residual timber is directly fed to a chopper in order to press pellets from it. After the cross-cutting operation the workpieces are sorted according to length and quality at 12 sorting stations.
As another highlight, the visitors were able to convince themselves of the new cross-cut system model RAPID for high-efficiency cross-cutting featuring two saw blades with utmost accuracy at a tolerance of less than 1 mm. The impressive speed of the RAPID caused a stir again and again during the demonstrations. The PAUL Wood-Scanning System turns the RAPID into a premium system for maximum added value.
Furthermore, novelties such as the “PAUL Touch-Free Marking System“ for difficult and high-grade timber species, as well as the circular edger / ripsaw KME3 were ready for demonstration.
The Optimizing Days offered the attendant experts an interesting opportunity to experience and get to know PAUL’s product range along with state-of-the-art control technology ‘live’. Therefore it cannot be excluded that this or similar events will be repeated in the near future.
