Precision Laser Measurement

The Warp Wacker is an optional feature that integrates with the Copar Quality Master system. Warp Wacker continually monitors corrugated sheets on the stacker conveyor for warped conditions, and adjusts the machine automatically until flat board is produced.

With only two lasers, 1200 individual measurements can be made across machines up to 110 inches (2,9 m) wide. This ensures accurate measurements, while utilizing simple integration into existing Copar Wet End Corrugator Control system. The Warp Wacker is the #1 tool in corrugator warp control on the market.

Warp Correction

Warp Wacker uses a temperature correction process to automatically resolve warped product in real-time. Corrections are made quickest by adjusting machines closest to the end of the line first, but the sequence may be changed depending on plant requirements.  The typical adjustment sequence is as follows:

     1. Heating Section
     2. Doublebacker Wrap Arms
     3. Singlefacer Wrap Arms (optional)
     4. Variable Bridge Loading with Sync Master (optional)
     5. Segmented Water Spray (optional)

The Warp Wacker Lasers are mounted 80" (2 Meters) Above the Stacker Conveyor

Warp Wacker can be installed on all knife levels.
The plant may choose a custom warp correction strategy. Changing a procedure typically takes less than 3 minutes, and can be done remotely.
Customizations can be made to display expected score blade locations.
