VIRTUAL OPERATOR INTERFACE
AE EdgerView™ is a virtual operator interface that provides a live video image on screen combined with movable sawlines that interface directly with your Setworks PLC. It can be used in both Green and Dry mills and provides the ability for the operator to make visual grade overrides and manually adjust the sawlines for optimum recovery.
EdgerView™ can also be interfaced to prepositioning and dual sided infeeds.
Another advantage is that there is no need for Lasers on the machine meaning that you have a better view of the machine outfeed, and as the mill no longer needs to be darkened to see lasers this improves the operators ability to see defects and wane.
We also offer solutions for Gang Edgers which negates the need for many lasers as well as an option for end on view of Cants to enable operators the ability to box out the pith or low grade zone.
Automation & Electronics IRIS™ is installed in Hardwood and Softwood mills in New Zealand, Australia, United States and Papua New Guinea.
The advanced 3D Optimisation software provides high profile wane up/down scanning on transverse and lineal infeeds (also including Slew & Skew or wigglebox solutions). We select the correct sensor for the application using laser scanner sensors from LMI, ScanMeg and JoeScan. Depending on the application, if we are scanning a Flitch, Cant or Roundback will determine which sensor we provide to integrate with our Windows based Optimisation combined with SQL database for production reports and PLC control system. The system is available in both Metric and Imperial and incorporates value and volume based priorities along with adjustable wane rules and zones.
We also feature a board historian program for archiving real images and solutions for simulation.
Other features include manual override control and EdgerView™ virtual operator interface for Grade improvement. A&E is also carrying out extensive Research & Development on automated grading using integrated vision based scanning.
