GreCon DAX 6000

Reliable Establishment of the Raw Density Profiles of Laboratory Samples

The Laboratory Measuring System DAX 6000 conveniently measures the raw density profiles of wood based panels within seconds. The density profiles as well as the measured values are represented on a monitor and stored individually for each panel sample.
The high-precision measuring results are used to adapt the production process quickly.

Benefits at a glance

  • Density profile available within a few seconds
  • Several profiles superimposed in one graphic = production control
  • Clear display of the effects of changes in the production
  • Material savings by analysing, monitoring, understanding, and adapting
  • Easy data export to CSV or XML data formats
  • Can be combined with other laboratory measuring devices
  • Quick amortisation
  • Extended temperature range up to 40 °C
  • Preparation of samples during an ongoing measuring process
  • Output of a graphical report in PDF format

Measuring principle

Highly precise measurements can be carried out at a speed of up to 1 mm per second with the optimised measuring source, consisting of an x-ray combination. In combination with other measuring systems, the laboratory work can be even more effective and easy. All laboratory data obtained is evaluated and displayed in the visualisation of the DAX 6000.

Measuring Process

Measurement is carried out in only a few and simple steps. As a first step, the known production data of the panel samples is entered into the visualisation computer. This data is then allocated to the dimensional and weight values determined by means of the measuring caliper and the scale.

The sample holder, equipped with panel samples, is placed in the carrier and the measurement is started. Within a few seconds, the measured results are available in numerical and graphical form for further analysis. Reference measurements are carried out at regular intervals to obtain measuring results in a constantly high precision. For this purpose, the sample magazines are equipped with reference samples.

Software and Visualisation

  • The extensive DAX 6000 software allows an intuitive handling of all program modules. All data is recorded, archieved and graphically processed.
    The obtained raw density profiles are automatically stored in a database and can be called up for additional analysis at any time. For comparison, the density profiles of several samples can be superimposed in one graphic. Furthermore, the database provides the following advantages:
    ■ Access to the database via network using the visualisation software
    ■ Administration of users and access rights
    ■ Back-up and Restore of the database possible
    ■ Support of Asian fonts / characters
  • The integrated export function can be utilised to make the data available for other programs. Important parameters of the current measurement, including:

     ■ average raw density

     ■ maximum raw density of the top layer

     ■ maximum raw density of bottom layer

     ■ current position of sanding surface 

  • These are shown in numerical form after the measuring process and their position identified within the raw density profile. Comprehensive functions for an in-depth evaluation and analysis of the raw density profiles include:

     ■ Zooming into sections of the raw density profiles

     ■ Comparative measurements of various board samples

     ■ Averaging of several measurements

     ■ Determining the optimal sanding surface

     ■ In-depth analysis of the surface layer
