Efficient wood and paper processing
From unfinished wood planks to high-quality paper – intelligent sensors and position measurement systems ensure greater efficiency in woodworking and paper-making machinery. Even though sensors in the forestry and sawmill industries are subjected to the harshest ambient conditions, they must still work with the highest reliability. Our innovative sensor technology is robust, precise, and enables fast, automated processes.
Our vibration-resistant BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors are used in hydraulic cylinders to optimally feed logs of various sizes into debarking machinery. This allows you to reliably monitor the piston position of the feed unit.
Fast and flexible: Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors ensure that the log is guided to the desired board thickness after each successive cut.
During wood processing, hydraulic cylinders control the saw blades, and our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors reliably and accurately report the position. This allows the position of every saw blade to be adjusted individually, which makes it possible to change the cross section extremely fast.
Intelligent cylinders with our built-in BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensor ensure that the contact pressure of the knife remains constant. They precisely control its position while it peels the logs in veneer production.
In paper production, the headbox evenly applies the stock suspension on the wire mesh. Hydraulic components control the deckle plates and headbox bottom lip. Our precise position measurement systems in hydraulic cylinders reliably ensure quality thanks to their stainless steel sensor head - even in this aggressive environment.
Highly modern hydraulics and position measuring technology can handle high production speeds in the paper winding process. Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors, which are securely packed in the hydraulic cylinder, continually report the exact position.
