Gap Management

At the primary breakdown, it is a well-known fact that proper gap management has a direct impact on production and bottom-line profits.

In essence, when the gap between logs is too small, the line must stop to position the cutting tools. When the gap is too long, throughput is reduced. Therefore, it is important to maintain a constant gap between the logs, which is easier said than done.

This is where Autolog's solution comes in.

The camera for gap management is located at the log infeed of a sawing line. By adding the camera, it will detect with precision both the beginning of the log in the feeder, or the absence of the log, as well as the end of the log on the conveyor, maximizing the use of the sawing line while maintaining a constant gap between each log.

The system also eliminates virtually all log crossings. For example, a log that is too small to be detected by the other type of sensors may result in two logs crossing over one another in the chain, triggering a production stoppage in order to separate these two logs.

Without this solution, customers must use several types of sensors to detect these two logs, for example photocells such as analog or single point, only to achieve average results.

Thanks to Autolog and the early adopters, customers achieve excellent results while reducing downtime and production costs.

This may be the quick fix you are looking for and we are ready to help.
