WOOD PRO

LASER PROJECTION SYSTEM
for the wood processing industries

WOOD PRO - THE DIGITAL LASER TEMPLATE FOR THE WOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRIES

WOOD PRO is a laser system for projection of polylines or outlines onto working surfaces, work pieces or machine bases. Laser lines are generated based upon CAD data. The projected shapes are true to scale. With WOOD PRO you optimize workflow and quality of your production. Independent of process and product, you may work faster, more flexible and cleaner than with conventional templates or measuring aids.

YOUR BENEFITS

  • 3 IN 1
    WOOD PRO is a complete system of perfectly harmonised components: user interface, projection system and service.
  • MORE PRECISION
    Place your clamps, objects or prefabs with millimeter accuracy.
  • FASTER
    Save working time: no measuring, no marking, no trying - load data, start projection, take-off.
  • CLEAR-CUT
    See in advance what is going to happen - and where.
  • SAFER
    Identify problems during setup – before it‘s too late.
  • MORE COST EFFECTIVE

WOOD PRO AT THE MACHINING CENTER

fast and precise placement of workpieces and suction cups

System description

LAP CAD-PRO laser projectors are installed above the working area. They can be mounted fixed at the ceiling or on beams or movable on swivel arms or rails.

An industrial PC controls one or more laser projectors. The projectors depict the outlines individually or simultaneously.

The projection shows the position of suction cups, the shape of the finished workpiece or unique segments true to scale at the specified position. In addition to outlines, letters and numbers can also be projected. It is also possible to use userdefined signs and symbols.

WOOD PRO FOR PREFABRICATED ELEMENTS

step by step production of prefab wall elements

Workflow description

Prefabs can be buildt step by step with the assistance of WOOD PRO systems. First, the position of the main timber structure is displayed. After adding the cover plates, laser lines show the exact location of the rows of nails or screws. Cut-outs are projected and sawed, than the frame is turned over. Installation parts or electric cables may be placed before or after adding insulation material. Finally, the second
cover is added, and the projection system shows the position of cut-outs, e.g. for switches or power sockets.

WOOD PRO FOR GLULAM TRUSS

PRODUCTION OF LAMINATED BOARDS

The outlines of the element to be produced are projected on the working table. You may place timber boards in the required size, number and arrangement, always keeping an eye on the final shape. For large pieces, you may use WOOD PRO with several projection heads.

WOOD PRO FEATURES

MULTICOLOUR

Outlines may be created and projected in three colours, by one or by several projectors. Change of colour is possible between or within shapes. 

BENEFIT: Visual display of groups, remarks, status …

VIEWPORT

One or several areas of the projection may be highlighted. The selection is done at the client screen by mouseover. 

BENEFIT: Better visibility of important areas on request.

LOAD-BALANCING

Projection data is not distributed by position of the projectors, but by load. Projection areas have to
overlap for optimal performance.

BENEfIT: Homogeneous, fastest possible projection.
