Detecting defects in laminate flooring requires trustworthy technology and solutions.

«When we can’t find components that meet our high standards, we develop our own. We never compromise on quality.»

Jan Sandok, Technical Director

Argos needs to consider the wood and panel specifications to develop the best surface grading technology.

One of the specific characteristics of laminate flooring, is the overlay manufacturers apply to protect the panels against fading, wear, and tear. The grading systems must have advanced light sources to detect defects in this overlay. This specific light source is the only one that can discover defects in this type of foil.

For the past months, the technical team in Argos has worked hard to develop the best lights for our laminate flooring grading system. One of the strengths of developing these internally, is that we can offer light sources that are tailor-made to fit our systems and high requirements. They also benefit the customers by being more trustworthy and cost-efficient.

Jan Sandok, technical director of Argos Solutions is responsible for testing the new light source.

For this system, we needed to find the most powerful light diodes that can be adjusted to our aluminum frame and that are compatible with cameras, cooling, and remaining technology. We have managed to develop a complete lighting package that is essential in securing the desired quality of the flooring panels.

The feedback from customers confirms that Argos has the experience and competence to develop and deliver cutting-edge technology, adapted to individual customer needs and surface specifications.

The new, innovative light source, which is specifically adapted to the remaining electronics and hardware, will be implemented in Automatic Grading systems for laminate flooring and melamine presses.
