Altec XY Scanner
The Altec XY Scanner and charger controls package is a high performance, cost-effective drop-in replacement solution for upgrading existing XY scanning and geometric positioning systems on veneer lathes. The system uses advanced line-scanning laser sensors, providing superior round-up complete and carriage retract solutions, yielding both increased recovery and production over conventional scanning systems. This system is fully configurable to handle a wide range of block lengths and diameters. The scanner has the ability to scan and rotate during the lift period which dramatically reduces cycle time.
The Altec XY Scanner is modular, scalable and user-friendly. The system can be easily retrofitted to existing lathe charger systems, and has an install time of 72 hours or less, depending on the configuration. Servicing sensors on the system is simple—fully integrated comprehensive alarming and system diagnostics make the scanner easy to use and maintain.
