Cross-cutting optimization explained simply
Step 1: LuxscanLine scanners are based upon various sensors, such as laser cameras, color cameras and X-ray. Your WEINIG expert will define the right sensors and the best combination of these, matched to the wood species, surface quality and customer requirements. Our objective is to achieve the best possible quality of information for the required application.
Step 2: Image processing is handled by the highly sophisticated OptiCore software. This detects and identifies defects as well as color variations on the board. The ideally adapted sensor data ensures optimal data processing and defect detection.
Step 3: Optimization via the high-performance OptiCore software calculates the best solution during cross-cutting. In doing so, it takes into account the various customer requests and requirements. Based upon the precise board data calculated during image processing, the board is optimized in accordance with the customer’s settings. This allows a virtually unlimited number of qualities and products to be defined. Thus, even a complex product mix can be quickly and simply optimized.

The sensors: The key to success
All sensors are ideally protected by a dust-proof housing. All our systems are fitted with laser and color cameras as standard. Having the combined detection capabilities of both cameras guarantees the best results. With the continuous development in these industrial sensors, the performance is continually improving. Using this technology, it is possible to identify defects such as knots, pith, and cracks. The improved laser system also allows the detection of 3D surface defects such as holes, wane and edge defects.
OptiCore AI : Revolution in the wood optimization
OptiCore AI is an intelligent image processing software. This revolutionary method uses Deep Learning, a class of Neural Networks from the field of AI, to automatically analyze and identify wood defects. OptiCore AI allows training of the scanner to recognize and classify timber characteristics for multiple qualities to meet your final product requirements.
The software learns to process images like a human brain and is trained by being shown multiple defect examples. Deep Learning leads to improved accuracy, improved detection repeatability with changing wood characteristics, and reduced set-up time.
