  • WoodEye Cross Cut
    As the lumber passes through its inspected and
    measured on up to four sides simultaneously by
    multiple cameras and sensors – each specialized
    in detecting various properties in the lumber. This
    information is then used to control crosscut saws....

  • For the most and the best out of your material
    The WoodEye Cross Cut detects biological and geometrical deviations in boards that are defined by type, size, and position. Rot, blue stains, and pith are detected, as are dimensional defects such as knot holes and wane. The image sensors in the measuring frame also register fiber direction and roughness.

    Cutting it close to perfection
    The WoodEye Cross Cut uses advanced technology to get the maximum yield from your lumber. It takes over the optimization work from the crosscut saws to scan and optimize simultaneously.  Crosscuts are positioned with great precision to cut right at the edge of the defect and maximize the defect-free area.

    Value-based production
    When inspecting the material, the scanner references to all the products that must be produced and calculates the optimal way to cut the material. The system considers the value of each individual product, as well as your quantity and distribution goals. These complex rules optimize the use of each board and enhance your production at the same time.

  • WoodEye Rip
    The WoodEye Rip uses several sensors to inspect both sides of the lumber simultaneously as it passes. Multiple cameras placed side by side inspect the wide lumber with the same resolution as a normal cross-cut scanner....

  • Beginning at the end
    The high resolution in the WoodEye Rip in combination with our unique 2D optimization software creates whole new possibilities for optimizing towards the final product. Instead of waiting with final decisions to the cross-cutting stage, the end-product can be planned already at the ripping. The system can allocate the components on the board based on the final use and shape of the products.

    Produce exactly what you need
    With 2D optimization, the scanner positions the products on the board while also matching against the required quantities to be produced. Decisions include product dimensions as well as the best side of the lumber to use for each product.

    Looking at the big picture
    The scanners precut feature takes your rip optimization one step further. The software evaluates if precuts will increase the total value of the board and acts accordingly.
