Solid Wood Storage SWS

The innovation for solid wood.

The Barbaric Solid Wood Storage SWS combines many years of experience in the field of wood panel handling with innovation in design and software. Our traverse is specially designed for the handling of solid wood and integrates a laser scanner as well as a stripping mechanism.

    Fully automatic loading and unloading

    with integrated laser scan and contour detection

    In the store-in area, a laser scanner automatically detects the edges of the wooden planks and also saves an image of the wood grain. The storage software not only keeps track of the planks regarding formats and quantities, but also offers an overview of the workpiece surface before ordering planks for store-out or feeding into a machining centre.

    With this solution we can offer a fully automated store-in of delivered wooden planks on a pallet. First a layer with multiple planks is scanned and then stored individually after measuring and edge detection. Before the step for the next layer can be repeated, intermediate timbers are stripped with our special traverse.

      Fully Automatic Store-in

      of delivered planks with wipe-off function for packaging wood

      Our Solid Wood Storage SWS enables the fully automatic store-in of wooden planks that arrive stacked on a pallet with packaging wood inbeetween layers. Once the store-in is started, no operator is necessary for until the storage system is ready for the next pallet to load. During the storage process one workpiece after the other is stored and packaging woods are automatically pushed off before manipulation.


      Automatic Laser Scan

      of surface and edge contour

      A laser scan of the surface not only allows the edge contour to be recognized, but also gives the operator a very good image of the wood grain and surface for the retrieval and feeding process. This makes it possible to determine whether the wood pattern is suitable for further processing or if it is necessary to select a different workpiece to be retrieved.

      In order to ensure that our handling systems function optimally, we rely on good cooperation with our customers and particularly customer-oriented support through our competent service team. 

      Overview Service

      Our products

      Manual vacuum lifters from Barbaric enable efficient handling of heavy wood and glass panels and save valuable time in production. While conventional manipulation by hand requires 2-3 employees, a vacuum lifting systems allows a single employee to move oversized panels with maximum ergonomics and without physical exertion.

      Our automatic handling solutions take over fully automated process steps in wood panel and part production. Panel storage and retrieval systems, feeding systems, buffer storage and return systems are just a few examples of modern systems in the field of material handling. All of our machines are built individually according to the requirements of our customers, while proven handling concepts and trusted components are used.
