ARGUS Vision Systems

ARGUS Vision System
The ARGUS vision systems use specialized cameras backed by proprietary software and algorithms to provide metrics on stranding performance including log fill rates and fines production monitoring.
That data provided by ARGUS can be used to help target operator training and to make more informed operating decisions, maximizing the performance of your OSB plant.
Argus FMS

ARGUS-FMS™

The Fines Measurement System (FMS) continuously scans the strander outfeed conveyor to provide real-time fines percentages for every cutting pass. Removing the variability and errors associated with infrequent and inconsistent manual strand sampling provides OSB producers more relevant data for making better process decisions.
ARGUS-FMS was developed in collaboration with FPInnovations
Argus LFO

ARGUS-LFO™

The main limiting factor in producing more from stranders is the fill factor in the log feeding system. By providing real-time and shift reporting on log fill levels, the Log Fill Optimizer (LFO) gives operators the tools and confidence to know if more logs will fit into the load pocket.
Argus LDO

ARGUS-LDO™

The Log Deck Optimizer (LDO) tells operators the volume of wood staged on the log deck, prior to feeding into the load pocket. When combined with ARGUS-LFO, operators have full visibility over the strander feed system, allowing the delivery of consistently full batches into the strander.
