The WoodEye Parquet and Flooring scanners has better and more precise detection than anyone else on the market.
Over 30 years in the making
We have a long track record of working with hardwood. The first WoodEye parquet scanner was delivered back in 1987 and we have been leading the market since then.
The most sold hardwood scanner
We are proud to have delivered a clear majority of the parquet scanners on the market. In fact, every year in Europe, over 33 million sqm of parquet runs is scanned by a WoodEye.
What really defines the WoodEye Parquet scanner is the ability to recognize defects in appearance. The system use complex algorithms to recognize small deviations in esthetics and thereby make it possible to sort and grade the material based on esthetic demands, at full production speed. Color and grain pattern detection along with thickness measuring are essential for quality control and consistency in flooring production.
Efficency meets consistency
The level of quality and consistency obtained with a parquet scanner can’t be compared to that of manual sorting. In manual sorting there is always risk of inconsistent quality assessment. A too negative assessment might result in loss of potential higher revenue, while a too positive assessment may result in customer complaints. The scanner will act with complete objectivity, guaranteeing absolute consistency at super-human high speed.
The difference is in the details
The sensors measure the dimension of the defects with a 0.2 mm precision. Numerous cameras and sensors are optimized to distinguish small variations in color and tone as well as degrees of darkness and shade. Thanks to our unique sensors, we can determine the fiber direction of the component by analyzing how the laser light scatters across the lumber.
