Veneer Handler with AI sortation
No Two Logs Are the Same

Introducing the Veneer Panel Handler with AI Sortation, a state-of-the-art solution transforming sawmill operations with advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI). This innovative robot meticulously sorts veneer, precisely placing each piece in its designated location for optimal efficiency.

Veneer Handlers incorporate Intelligent Agents to see and predict objects and events, recommend actions and report on important metrics. It’s AI can be trained to make human-like decisions consistently and quickly. Here, the Intelligent Agent is identfying Knots, Splits and Holes on a veneer panel. The Veneer Handler can automatically place the sheet in the apropriate location based on user defined thresholds.

Veneer Panel Handler: What It Can Do

This robotic workcell can automate the process of moving veneer and plywood panels to and from stacks, conveyors and other machinery. Here are some of the key capabilities:

Veneer Panel Handlers with AI sortation arrange this paneling after the Intelligent Agent inspects each panel for knots, holes, and split defects. Panels meeting user-defined thresholds are accurately placed in the accepted stack, while those that do not meet specifications are sorted into a rejection stack. The entire process is automated and controlled by an AI model trained with unobtrusive video collected onsite, eliminating the need for human intervention.
