GreCon New Measurement and Control Technology for Industry 4.0:

LIGNA Preview, GreCon, Inc.

The high speed of modern production means that companies need real time, up to the millisecond, information about their manufacturing processes performance. This use of automation and data exchange, termed industry 4.0 or "smart factory", will allow operators to control production safely and efficiently. Fagus-GreCon is introducing integration technologies to their preventive fire protection and measuring systems at LIGNA 2017. These technologies will allow GreCon systems to "talk" with the factory´s control and monitoring systems


NEW: GreCon DML 6000 with Carbon Frame

LIGNA Preview, GreCon, Inc.

Continuous stable inline thickness measurement now available in difficult applications, such as thin panel production Fagus-GreCon, a leading manufacturer of wood based panel industry measuring systems, will present the new Laser Thickness Gauge DML 6000 with carbon frame at LIGNA 2017. Carbon is a composite, the thermal expansion coefficient of which is considerably lower than that of steel or aluminum. The resulting lower thermal expansion allows precise measuring values even in case of uncontrolled temperature changes.


GreCon Makes the Raw Density Profile Measuring System STENOGRAPH even more efficient

LIGNA Preview, GreCon, Inc.

The GreCon Raw Density Profile Measuring System STENOGRAPH have been successfully utilized in the panel board market for decades. The system has recently gone through an extensive update in both hardware construction and software control elements. GreCon has striven to improved price-performance ratio to make the new STENOGRAPH the most attractive solution for many wood based panel producers.


VOC quick test to determine volatile organic compounds from wood based panels

LIGNA Preview, GreCon, Inc.

Fagus-GreCon the international leading manufacturer of measuring systems for the wood based panel industry, will present a laboratory measuring system prototype to determine the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from wood products. This prototype will be unveiled at LIGNA 2017. The declaration of VOC emissions from construction products in the scope of the CE marking which will be mandatory within the near future is the catalyst for this innovative prototype.


Brainstorm: From dust explosions to gas leaks, food companies must mitigate various safety risks every day. What solutions can food manufactures put in place to prevent potential disasters and increase employee safety?

Terry Franklin, Technical Sales Director, GreCon, Inc.

Combustible dust is one of the most destructive hazards in the food manufacturing industry. Your facility may be large and complicated or your facility may be small and simple. If you process powders, resize solids or dry foods, odds are you have a combustible dust hazards.

Spark Detection: First Line of Defense for
Preventing Combustible Dust Fires and Explosions

By Jeffrey C. Nichols

The preferred technology for spark detection in most applications is to utilize detectors that are designed to detect light energy in the near infrared (IR) range [...] This methodology is more effective at identifying possible ignition sources in the incipient stage, before combustion starts. Spark detectors see the infrared energy emitted by a spark, and because of the properties of infrared light, it can see sparks and embers through many types of material and even reflections of embers that heat detectors cannot. Light from a spark or ember in the near infrared range can also be detected at much greater distance that heat.
