Transverse and lineal scanning, optimization, and controls for the edger.

The FlitchScanner produces the highest value untrimmed boards from a flitch at the edging machine center. The system supports configurations for both transverse and linear infeed. High-density 3D modelling enables the optimization logic to identify the smallest of geometric defects, even rot. Multiple scan zones are supported on lineal infeeds to minimize the system's mechanical footprint.
