SINGLE GRADER: CENTER GRADING
TS builds a variety of Grading Systems engineered to match your needs and requirements.
With one of the widest array of center grading options, including sit down, walking on the chains, and stand-up / stool configurations, we can help you achieve the grade quality and production your system requires.
Our Grading Stations are available with integrated Grade Scales, or a variety of scanning and measurement systems for accurate information presented to the grader. Center Grading Systems feature automated turning and singulation control, ensuring consistent board spacing, and allowing the grader to grade the boards at their own pace. This self-pacing has resulted in a 4%+ uplift in grade values at some installations.
MULTI-GRADER: CENTER GRADING
When production demand increases, multiple graders are often required. With stacked 'waterfall' style center grading systems, it is still possible to have multiple (up to 4) graders feed an Automatic Trimmer and Sorting System (bin or pull chain); all without losing the automation benefits of modern grading systems.
These systems require only one person to feed the subsequent grading stations. The graders can be fed by unlugged backpressure and a dealing wheel (as shown), or with multi-chains and lugged feed for higher piece rates.
SINGLE LEVEL: END GRADING
Sloped Chains with Speedup Chains - Simple End Grading for multiple graders that can move with the lumber, and use the speedup chains to assist in turning the boards.
'Shark Fin' Grading Stations - Available in sloped and unsloped chainways.
Lugged Grading with Servo Turner - This turning system can selectively turn pieces and doesn't require the proprietary lugs of the Shark Fin System.
MULTI-GRADER: END GRADING
These systems allow multiple graders to operate above the lug at a reduced lug speed for better high speed grading quality. Many stations are available with automatic turning, like the Shark Fin.
