New Multirex 7225 Windows:
Flexible CNC scantling processing
Fully-automated, five-sided rod processing is
the domain of the new Multirex for window
production. The centerpiece is a multi-functional processing head. A 17 k W power
spindle with PRO-Torque technology enables
high-precision five-axis simultaneous milling
motion. The innovative clamping concept
with eight CNC-controlled consoles and 24
automatically positionable clamping devices
guarantees flexibility and unrivaled precision.
Up to 88 tool slots ensure versatile processing
of window profiles.
New ProfiPress T Next Generation:
Intelligent gluing concept
The automatic gluing press is a completely
new development in every respect. With
25 percent more output, the ProfiPress T
Next Generation significantly surpasses its
predecessors. The leap in performance is
principally attributable to the faster packaging
and increased high-frequency entry. The so-called selective heating also plays a central
role. During this process, the joint is only
heated from the inside, resulting in shorter
press times among other benefits.
New ProfiRip 340:
Ripping with high productivity
The completely newly developed multi-blade
buzz saw offers up to 3-fold blade adjustment.
The integrated TimberMax software ensures
particularly high wood recovery. The quality
optimization in 2D takes into consideration
the required part lengths during ripping.
Minimum setup times and high user-friend-
liness are among the other attributes of the
ProfiRip 340. This includes the Quickfix quick
clamping system, which allows the fixed saw
blades to be clamped without tools. In Chibougamau, in the far north-east of Canada, the winters are long and icy. Forestry
and mining have shaped life in the region since
time immemorial. However, high tech has also
naturally embedded itself.
Chantiers de Chibougamau, a subsidiary of timber
construction group Nordic Structures, predominantly
manufactures solid wood beams, CLT structural elements and glulam. The efficient production
operation also includes the use of scanner technology.
Until recently, a Luxscan C180 was operating with-
out a hitch in 2 to 3-shift operation in the harsh
environment. Based upon their positive experience
with the machine, the company has turned to
WEINIG once again. This time, they have opted for
an EasyScan. In its latest iteration, the EasyScan+
offers detection performance on a par with WEINIG’s
high-end scanners. The EasyScan+ is also equipped
with a scatter laser, which enables optimal crack
detection and significantly increase timber yield.
The scanner is working at Chantiers de Chibougamau
in two-shift operation. The wood is checked by the
camera-based system according to defined quality
criteria before being sorted and fed to the two
Weinig Dimter cross-cut saws. The production line
operates at a speed of 225 m/min and achieves a
throughfeed output of 32,000 m per shift. Thanks
to the excellent detection performance, the system achieves a wood recovery of 84 percent. This
represents a 20 percent increase in value creation
compared with the previous model and significantly
reduced losses during subsequent finger jointing.
The Chantiers de Chibougamau team is completely
satisfied with the new investment. A delighted
Quality Manager Daniel Tremblay says: “It’s like a
dream. We never have to worry about the scanner.
You simply have to press start and stop and the
result is a consistent product to a very high standard

New Entry-level Scanner
Is Simple and Affordable
The use of scanner technology provides a key function.
Defect detection via camera and laser is an ultra-efficient instrument in the race for maximum
productivity, optimal quality and the shortest delivery
times. Speed and accuracy are among the main
attributes of Weinig’s Easyscan Eagle which was
designed and built in Europe exclusively for the
The state-of-the-art scanning technology is used for
softwoods as well as hardwoods. The Easyscan Eagle
features four-sided inspection for chop applications
and processes up to 20 boards per minute. Smaller
companies often struggle with making the leap into
