MiCROTEC Provides the Number 1 Solution for Strength Grading

The Italian provider for wood processing solutions MiCROTEC offers the most certified lineal strength grading solution for lumber worldwide. The combination of the Goldeneye multi-sensor quality scanner including X-ray and Viscan localises and recognises every detail of the lumber with unbeatable precision.

It reliably determines a modulus of elasticity (MOE) profile over the full length of the board by measuring the board’s density via X-ray as well as the resonant frequency. The MOE is combined with the visual data from the Goldeneye. Different grades can be determined for different parts of the board, so weaker parts can be removed allowing for a significant increase in yield.

As Martin Bacher, Intellectual Property and Strength Grading Expert at MiCROTEC explains, the MiCROTEC
strength grading solution has been certified according to the most relevant grading standards worldwide including EN 14081, MSR, and AS/NZS1748 standards. “This has allowed for the solution with Goldeneye and Viscan to be installed 50 times in countries across the world, among others in Germany, USA, Japan, South Africa, and Brazil.”
