The dream of knowing what’s inside a log before sawing has come true. Now, you can sort logs according to quality, optimize bucking and find the cutting solution that yields the highest value.
CT Log Computed Tomography scans and digitally reconstructs the internal features of a log in 3D, continuously assessing the optimum cutting solution in real time. For the first time, the size and position of internal wood defects can be accurately described from all angles. Using these internal defects, the CT Log evaluates appearance, quality and strength properties, assessing their impact on the final products before the physical breakdown of the log. Sawing and bucking solutions are continuously optimized for the highest quality and resale value, so production can be managed according to real-time production priorities.
Large Cone-Beam Computed Tomography is the most innovative technology for the log yard developed by our industry-leading engineers. This approach uses a large X-ray sensor rotating 360 degrees around a log and an innovative mathematical reconstruction algorithm to perform high speed, high-resolution X-ray CT-scanning.
CT Log Computed Tomography data is the basis for the powerful breakdown optimization software, Maxicut, that determines the best cutting pattern with the highest outcome based on quality and resale value of the final products.
Interopt Bucking Optimization determines cross-cutting based on the highest value cutting pattern solutions in various areas within the log.
Winlog Sorting Optimization enables log sorting and control of the log and merchandising yard.
Through the integrated MiCROTEC solutions CT Log, Logeye 302 Fingerprint and Goldeneye 900 every log can be recognized and tracked to the boards by the 'digital fingerprint'. Therefore, besides cutting optimization, complete traceability from log to board can be guaranteed.
