Laminex, one of Australia’s largest makers of wood panels and laminate products has again selected Argos Solutions for automatic grading systems to their melamine production lines.

Through innovation and a strong belief in Australian Made, the Laminex business continues to invest in new technology to produce locally made products. The newest investment is two new automatic grading systems from Argos Solutions.

The Argos Grading System is a powerful and effective system for automating the inspection of all types of surface defects in decorative surfaces. The optical inspection system checks the surface for the smallest defects and monitors the production process continuously.

– These systems will optimize our production even further, says Graham Andrew, General Manager Operations at Laminex.

We know that the Argos systems are fast and accurate, as well as easy to install and operate.

– Being able to trust advanced camera technology inspecting our panels, opposed to relying on the human eye will enable us to increase production speed, reduce downgrades and enhance the quality. All factors that will benefit both our production and our customers, Andrew says.

The relationship between Norwegian based Argos and Australian Laminex goes back to 2005 when they purchased their first grading system. Over the years, the company has grown and the need for high quality inspection systems has increased. The two new systems will be an addition to their melamine production and will be delivered in 2022.

– In Laminex we say that “Every Australian deserves great quality design”, Andrew says. The systems from Argos will strongly contribute to keeping that promise.

– For Argos, it is a confirmation of trust and satisfaction with our systems and service that Laminex yet again chooses Argos. We welcome this opportunity to continue our relationship with one of the leading producers to the Australian market and look forward to still being a part of delivering quality products to their customers.
