Computed Tomography for the sawmill of the future.

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.

Advantages

  • 100% optimum cutting solution based on the highest value of final products
  • Increased value in every sawn log compared to any other breakdown solution
  • Maximization of lumber quality to significantly increase revenue and resale value
CT Log
The best cut

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.

Up to 8% average value increase per log
  • 100% optimum cutting solution based on the highest value of the final product
  • Increased value in every sawn log compared to any other breakdown solution
  • Maximization of lumber recovery quality that significantly increases revenues & resale value
