On May 3rd, Microtec announced the official integration and inclusion of FinScan and WoodEye into the Microtec family. Following this news, Microtec presents now a new generation of longitudinal scanners for sawmill, remanufacturing and 2nd processing applications to the industry.
Meet the new range from Microtec
“Together with our colleagues in Italy, we have worked hard during the past year to be able to launch a new range of scanners , which combines the best of the two worlds from Woodeye and Goldeneye. With the new common platform for longitudinal scanning we will take wood scanning solutions to a whole new level”, says Stefan Nilsson, CSO of Microtec Linköping.
The range will thereby be defined by two product lines: the new Microtec Goldeneye scanners for softwood applications and the Woodeye scanners for hardwood applications. The scanners are based on a new common platform, developed by a joint team from Italy and Sweden.
The result of a common approach
The new common platform and movement technology combines the strengths and experience of both development teams, offering better precision in detection at higher speeds, with optimal resolution and extended possibilities to optimize for different material sizes and applications. It will also be delivered with a brand new control station that puts usability in focus and easily adapts to the comfort of the operator.
“We are also working on a common AI (Artificial Intelligence) platform that is integrated in the new product range. This AI solution represents the collaboration between all four Microtec companies in Italy, Finland, Sweden and the U.S.”, states Arianna Giudiceandrea, CSO of Microtec Headquarters in Bressanone.
