The Computerized Lathe Charger chucks the geometrically centered
block and rotates it for laser scanning while simultaneously raising and
repositioning both ends optimally in order to maximize veneer recovery.
After the block has been perfectly repositioned, a precision pendulum
block transfer device precisely transports it to the lathe spindles. This
fast and accurate positioning contributes to production speeds of up to
18 cycles per minute.
Sophisticated centering algorithms adjust to the unique shapes and
characteristics of different species. The charger frame is of heavy-duty
steel construction to control deflection and accuracy and is designed
for direct attachment to the lathe for added rigidity and to assure
precise reference between the lathe and charger. Decades of lathe
charger experience has resulted in a simple to maintain design with few
