Title: Parts Color Matching Scanner for Edge Gluing - Research That Works

Author: Conners, Richard W.; Kline, D.Earl; Araman, Philip A.

Date: 1996

Source: Proceedings, 24th Annual Hardwood Symposium. pp. 109-116.

Publication Series: Not categorized

Description: This paper presents an automatic color sorting system for hardwood edge-glued panel parts. The color sorting system simultaneously examines both faces of a panel part and then determines which face has the "best" color given specified color uniformity and priority defined by management. The real-time color sorting system hardware and color matching hardware is briefly described. An actual working system has undergone extensive plant testing capable of sorting red oak panel parts into a number of color classes at plant production speeds. The system has been developed by Virginia Tech in cooperation with NOVA Technologies and is currently being marketed by Sutton Woodworking Machinery Company.
