For the past six months, Argos Solutions has in close collaboration with Kastamonu Entegre developed and tested a state-of-the-art grading system for laminate flooring. Now, the system is a fully integrated part of the production line at the Kastamonu facility.

– We really appreciate this partnership and the chance to develop this system together with Kastamonu. This project has given us the opportunity to expand our product portfolio and offer laminate flooring producers a high-quality grading system. This will optimize production, reduce downgrades, and secure the desired product quality, says Rune Gotfredsen, Sales Manager at Argos Solutions.

Laminate floors have different grading and quality requirements than other surface materials, and Argos has used its expertise and experience to develop and produce a system that meets these accurately. Together with Kastamonu, who is one of the leading producers of laminate floors, Argos Solutions have been able to test the system for large volumes, high production speed, and a wide array of specifications.


– The result of this pilot project is a system with updated camera and lighting technology. Argos has developed both the software and the hardware for this system, which is based on our experience with MFC. This system offers an HMI specifically adjusted for this segment and provides innovative and accurate image processing of the laminate floor panels, Rune continues.
