The system for an automatic highly definite scanning of marble, stone and granite
Scanner features an advanced image digitizing technology using a high resolution industrial linear camera and an LED lighting system, which are both specially designed to render the real colours of the material.
The system sets up automatically according to the slab thickness and takes photos which are not affected by the lighting conditions of the surroundings. It is possible to print labels with a bar code that are stuck manually to the slab surface by the operator (manual labelling).
The supply includes a PC for photo display and coding; the system links some general information (material, colour, thickness, real and “commercial” dimensions, etc.) to each single photo. Information is stored inside a database.
Two solutions are available: an in-line scanner system and an off-line scanner system. The in-line version is the first and most powerful solution able to scan stone slabs automatically from the line of production while small stone companies that are looking for high quality slabs recording systems can adopt the off-line version.
