Raute PRS R5 Proving Itself

Raute introduced its Panel Repair Station (PRS) R5 the plywood industry in 2020. Soon there will be 13 units operating in North America. Measuring 33 ft. by 26 ft., the R5 is no larger than most manual repair cells. It requires no foundations, meaning it can be up and running within two weeks of delivery.

By pairing accurate machine vision with intelligent analysis software to identify defects and apply the precise amount of filler needed, users of the R5 can expect to achieve repair material savings of up to 20%.

Making up to 300 panel face repairs per hour, the R5 automatically routes and fills the topmost panel—trimmed or untrimmed—in a stack of 100, then moves to the next stack. R5 can be run by a single operator or without any human intervention. Its linear motors have no moving parts, and their bearings are automatically lubricated.
