Wood industry

Operative range

The OPTImess sensor has been specially designed for non contact measurement in the wood industry’s production plants. It combines many advantages of the well-known OPTImess standard series, such as:

  • sturdy construction,
  • regulated laser diode,
  • interference immunity with regard to extraneous light,
  • high measuring frequency,

with a cost effectiveness, which has been adapted to the wood industry as best as possible.

The main areas of application are:

  • on-line thickness measurement
  • board measurement
  • profile measurement

Technical data

Resolution 0.1% of the measuring range
Sample frequency 25 kHz
Linearity < 0.3%

Examples of Operation

  • air rinsing
  • data processing units
  • specialised software

For all areas, where wider measuring ranges are necessary (e.g. for veneer peeling machines) the OPTImess standard sensors series is available with measuring areas of up to 2000 mm.
