Planer Outfeed

SiCam uses both SPX and MPX technology to measure the outfeed of the planer. The primary focus for this zone is immediate Size Control. The typical configuration will be a planer that does not have a grade optimizer or a large surge before the transverse grading system.



  • Size Control – Measure Board Thickness and Width
  • Shape Information – Diagnose shape defects like wedge, bevel and all linear shapes



  • Monitor thicknesses & /or widths of each piece
  • Manage on size performance
  • Reduce or cut to target size
  • Minimize manufacturing variations
  • Optimize cutting tool change cycles
  • Predict repair and maintenance cycle trends
  • Tune optimization & controls
