Products and services

ColourBrain® inspection systems automatically detect defects, monitor the production process and continuously measure the colour impression and printing sharpness for papers or decor foils, check wood fiber boards and chipboards, furniture boards directly after lamination and check each flooring plank and furniture element for the smallest surface and edge defects. 

We will be happy to show you installations of systems for inspecting the following:

  • Chip & Wood Fiber Boards after sanding
  • Laminated MDF or HDF boards in short-cycle press lines,
  • High gloss lacquering of furniture parts,
  • HPL or CPL films or boards,
  • Carcass elements and fronts,
  • Decor papers or foils.

The Q-Brain® classification system automatically assigns each defect in the process to its cause and creates the conditions for process analysis and process optimisation. Q-Live® networks our ColourBrain® systems together and records the quality of products around the clock - per shift, per product and per production batch.

ColourBrain® RawBoard 4.0

With the inspection system ColourBrain® RawBoard 4.0, Baumer sets new standards in the double-sided inspection of chipboards and MDF / HDF boards. Typical process errors such as grinding defects, damage to the surface and in the edge area as well as contamination caused by oil, water or dust spots are stably identified. Using standardized interfaces, the ColourBrain® RawBoard 4.0 inspection system can be easily and quickly integrated into customary line controls.

ColourBrain® Furniture 4.0

The inspection system ColourBrain® Furniture 4.0 is the technology leader in double-sided inspection of foil-coated, melamine-coated & lacquered furniture panels. The outcome are impressive inspection results: Surface defects such as bubbles, dents, fine scratches or shiny spots are precisely recognized in their smallest size, whether diagonally or transversely to the feed direction. An optional drill hole control also checks for the integrity of drilling holes & profile deviations of grooves.

ColourBrain® Edge 3D

ColourBrain® Edge 3D is a revised system for the inspection of glued and lasered edge bands on furniture parts. For example, too high edge bands are detected or even geometric features such as grooves and drill holes are recognized as such and distinguished from defects. In addition, defects such as edge breakouts of veneered edges or on real wood are visible. The system can be used in both series production and batch-1 production for defect detection and process optimization.
