IN-LINE AUTOMATED TOOL TO TEST WOOD PRIOR TO PROCESSING
The HITMAN LG640 uses stress wave velocity to assess fibre quality of logs for better processing decisions.
Now stiffness and related wood properties can be automatically assessed in-line during preliminary mill processing operation for optimal lumber utilization.
Now, using the HITMAN LG640, logs can be sorted by lumber quality for particular uses. Using stress wave velocity, automated testing at the debarker or other early processing stage, can assess wood stiffness at mill production line speed so logs can be batched ready for particular log cutting patterns or veneer peeling.
SEE IT ACTION
The industry has long needed an automatic production line system that measures the qualities of logs at the mill and assesses them for optimal cutting patterns to maximize recovered values.
The HITMAN LG640 is a robust design easily used on logs being conveyed in the longitudinal or transverse direction.
This device uses acoustic technology to measure the strength of wood in logs real-time, enabling log-by-log custom processing to extract greater value.
Our team provides consultation and expertise to forest harvesting and wood processing industries. We are committed to maximizing the benefits and returns to our customer’s business through the ongoing support and application of acoustic technologies. Contact us for any questions you may have.
