LIGNA 2023: Scanning for quality and safety with EWS’ scanners

Inline measuring and inspection systems for various tasks in wood-based panel production

Electronic Wood Systems (EWS) — technology and service partner in wood-based panel production — offers a range of measuring and inspection systems featuring precision, system integration and low maintenance. Engineered in Germany, the EWS system caters to individual requirements with on-site service and spare parts packages.

EWS has increased ranges of panel thickness such as the fast zero calibration of the continuous non-contact panel scale, CONTI-SCALE X. Further, density, production speed, and capacity in modern lines have been met. In the future, there are other raw materials for panel manufacturing aside wood from logs.

A new generation of EWS spark detection and extinguishing system is released in 2023. These systems detect glowing particles inside pneumatic conveying systems, blow pipes and chutes before they reach flammable areas such as dust filters, silos or bins. Dust fires, explosions and production shut downs can thus be avoided.

EWS offers two types of detectors suited to the application conditions: one developed for closed ducts and another specialised for the presence of extraneous light. Extinguishment is carried out by a modular extinguishing device which creates a dense water pattern in a split second. The applied higher-efficient extinguishing nozzle reduces water consumption while maintaining the same effectiveness as conventional nozzles.

Electronic Wood Systems will be at Hall 26: Stand E49.
