BLT WoodCut is a revolutionary technology designed for optimal cuts in timber and other wood up to 80 millimeters thick, in both wet and dry conditions and at a moisture level up to 80%. Consisting of a unique scanning and x-ray solution, laser cutting system and automatic robotic handling, BLT WoodCut opens a new era in wood processing.
The main challenge sawmills face is pressure to maximize material yield and production value. Only a low percentage of the wood is ever utilized and too much is wasted, so not enough profit is earned on each board. Decisions sawmill workers usually make often causes errors and quality material to be lost.
BLT WoodCut is a comprehensive production line developed to solve these long-existing problems by significantly increasing material yield, minimizing waste and maximizing profit from each board. To do this, each part of the production line was carefully chosen and underwent extensive research:
o The enhanced scanning and x-ray solution evaluates each board with no errors, setting up the most profitable cutting scheme for a laser to execute afterward
o Traditional saw-cutting is replaced with a unique laser system that brings many production advantages like a cutting thickness up to 80 millimeters, accurate cuts only 0.3 millimeters wide and cut in any direction along an XY axis
o Fully automated robotic handling provides manufacturing efficiency and reliability as well as quality everywhere in the production process
Developed to cover even more areas of production, this innovative technology processes valuable temperate and tropical woods as well as softwood. Besides timber and other primary wood products, it can also be used with product groups such as parquet top layers, veneer and furniture components.
