Tree-D supplies an affordable automated solution to
correctly orient logs on CNS infeeds, sharp chain
systems, or any other type of log charging application.
Tree-D's Automatic Log Rotation System consists of a scanning
station and computer hardware and software to compute
the optimum log rotation angle. Systems can be constructed
using the Model T261 scanner
in two or four scanners-per-ring configurations.
Tree-D also offers a Machine Vision System which augments the Log
Rotation System. The vision system uses video cameras to detect and track naturally occurring features present
on the ends of logs, providing feedback to the log turning system and significantly improving
log turning accuracy. An error signal is presented to the PLC during the turning process
indicating under- or over-turn.
Tree-D understands that few mills are identical, so
we work with you, your machinery manufacturer and your
electrical controls personnel to design and implement
the finest single source combination of scanners and
software available today.
Supported PLCs include Allen-Bradley (most models), Siemens and Automation Direct. Other types possible upon request.
