The Density Profile displays possible Optimization of the Production Process and refers to the Quality Properties of a Panel. The DENSE-LAB X system measures the  Density Profile vertical to the panel surface. This profile is influenced by  the press diagram of the hot press. A higher density is typically aspired to in the surface Layer; the actual thickness of the surface layer and definition of the sanding level are, among other statistics, key pieces of information  for the optimization of the production.  In the core layer, no density drops are allowed which weaken the internal Bond (tensile strength).  The calculation of the mean density, maximum and minimum values, mean value, proportions and  comparisons of panel samples are all valuable data which can be evaluated with the DENSE-LAB X.  The x-ray system works fast and precise - allowing several samples to be measured automatically and without any supervision. The DENSE-LAB X should be located on laboratory furniture; strict regulations and the compliance of safety standards during manufacturing prevent any emission outside of the system.
