The Altec Charger is available in both electric and hydraulic designs, and can achieve cycle times of up to 22 blocks per minute, making it the fastest charger currently available. The charger comes with the new Altec XY Scanner which is the most advanced on the market today.
Revolutionizing Charging and XY Scanning
By using precision roller screw actuators and electric servo motors, the electric charger is very precise, fast and quiet. This allows for the complete removal of the charger hydraulic power unit, valves, piping, and cooling system, while mitigating the environmental harm they can produce. With innovative true linear x and y axis positioning, the calibration, maintenance and troubleshooting process is greatly simplified.
Altec XY Scanner
The Altec XY Scanner and charger controls package is a high performance, cost-effective drop-in replacement solution for upgrading existing XY scanning and geometric positioning systems on veneer lathes. The system uses advanced line-scanning laser sensors and a fully electric charger, providing superior round-up complete and carriage retract solutions, yielding both increased recovery and production over conventional scanning systems. This system is fully configurable to handle a wide range of block lengths and diameters. The scanner has the ability to scan and rotate during the lift period which dramatically reduces cycle time. Improve your maximum recovery with an Altec XY scanner!
