Luxscan celebrates 20 years of innovation

WeinigLuxscan Technologies, the leading specialist for automated timber optimizing, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Today, it has a scanner program for all performance requirements and all investment volumes that also includes systems for strength grading.

In 2007, Luxscan became a member of the Weinig Group, the leading technology provider in solid wood and panel processing. Initially, the company focused on scanners for the recognition of various wood characteristics during cross-cutting.

 In 2008, the first rip scanner was introduced. The completely redesigned CombiScan+ Luxscan, with its advanced technology made it possible to detect defects even more precisely, to take more criteria into account and also to grade them according to defined qualities.

Due to its high performance and good integration into cutting systems, the CombiScan+ had a significant influence on market penetration. The EasyScan finally meant the successful expansion of the portfolio to the entry-level segment, in 2012. The enhanced EasyScan+ model set standards also in the medium range.

Luxscan is now in the position to cover requirements on every level.  The company employs more than 50 people and pays special attention to innovation and customer orientation. Accordingly, the R&D department is one of the two largest teams. The service is most strongly positioned, with 18 people in eleven languages taking care of customers’ concerns.

It currently produces scanners for all performance classes and has a complete range of machines to suit every requirement.
