mtgBATCH: Fully automatic & Economical Strength Grading. Up to 30 boards /minute.
Brookhuis mtgBATCH offers the best of both worlds. Cost effective system and fully automatic machine strength grading. The mtgBATCH makes it easy to sort your wood products in defined timber or lumber grades, like the most common grades C18, C24, C30 etc.
Brookhuis offers a cost effective strength grading options:
mtgBATCH: up to 30 boards per minute
mtgBATCH: up to 30 boards per minute for CE marking according to the EN14081 standard
The mtgBATCH systems can be extended with:
- Dimension measurement (length, width and thickness)
- Density measurement
- In-line moisture content measurement (FMI)
How does it work?
The mtgBATCH system predicts the strength class of a wooden board moving on a cross conveyor by computing the dynamic Modulus of Elasticity (MoEdyn) and the Density (ρ)
MOEdyn = ρV2 with V = 2 Lf
ρ = density, computed from weight and dimensions measurement (optional)
V = longitudinal velocity
L = length of the board
F = frequency of the longitudinal vibration
The measuring principle of the MTG is the measurement of the natural frequency of timber. “When the trigger button is pressed, the Timber Grader MTG determines the modulus of elasticity (MoE) and Strength Class of the timber with the aim to economically sort wood for structural purposes”. The mtgBATCH is based on a stop-and-go principle.
The strength class is then predicted via a mathematical model. A proven and reliable technique. The MTG is wireless connected to a PC on which the Timber Grader software is installed.
