Unique three-in-one analyzer to optimize production process

Veneer Visual, Moisture and Strength Analyzer R7 - Drying

Analyzer combines visual, moisture, and strength analysis in one intelligent system for optimized dry veneer grading. 

Veneer Visual, Moisture and Strength Analyzer R7 - Drying

Ultimate dry veneer sorting with combined data

This one of a kind analyzer combines visual, moisture, and strength analysis in one intelligent system for optimized dry veneer grading. The use of combined data enables producing higher-quality veneer, plywood, and LVL as well as optimizing production energy usage, runtime, recovery, and profit. The data also provides feedback to optimize peeling and drying processes.

Veneer Visual, Moisture and Strength Analyzer R7 (formerly known as Mecano VDA+Metriguard 2865 DME) offers different technologies to match your needs. You can select the imaging method of the three available models: color, micro, or surface. Moisture analysis is based on microwave technology which detects moisture through the veneer. The analyzer defines both peak and average moisture of the sheet. Furthermore, moisture analysis allows you to define different moisture content for different areas of the sheet. This enables higher average moisture content for the dried veneer to improve veneer quality and drying capacity.

The analyzer also measures the density, moisture, and thickness of the veneer sheets as well as sonic velocity through the veneer. Analysis based on these measurements enables the grading of veneers based on the density, ultrasonic propagation time (UPT), or Modulus of Elasticity (MoE).
