Strength Grading Knocking Device

iKnock is a device for predicting strength grade of boards by crating vibration and measuring it with laser interferometer. Each board is kicked by automatic knocking head, vibration wave is created and measured when it bounces back from the other end of the board. Machine then calculates dynamic modulus of elasticity, which serves for strength grade prediction. Device usually works together with SMARTI iCon X-Ray or iCross X-Ray scanner for increased accuracy when predicting strength grades. High speed production workflows are supported, making the solution usable for modern high performance wood processing lines.
