Timber Grading Equipment
A-grader Introduction --]
A new grading technology which determines the stiffness of timber using sound.
Developed in conjunction with Forest Research of New Zealand, the A-grader can measure the Modulus
of Elasticity on green rough-sawn, dry gauged timber, and long or short timber blocks.
This grading technology can be applied in the following applications:
Sorting by stiffness on green-sawn, random size and random length timber in the sawmill.
Stiffness grading of finger joint blocks.
Sorting by density for efficient kiln drying.
Stiffness grading on random length dried and gauged timber.
The A-grader's versatility cannot be matched.
"A-grader comes of age"
The A-grader is a stress grading machine that uses sound waves to measure timber stiffness...
