The Logeye 600 Scanner series is designed to analyze cants in the sawmilling production process, and integrates into profiler lines, gangs and re-saws for high-value lumber production. Quality inspection of the four-sided cant is achieved by combining different sensor techniques, such as color and laser channels, with Artificial Intelligence to accurately localize and detect defects. Each face can be graded using traditional grading rules, or with NHLA/Shop grading logic, automatically selecting the face with the highest yield for the next cut. This is an autonomous system for superior grading and high-volume production.
The system is also able to analyze the front ends of the cant, placing detected defects in an x-y matrix and calculating the distance to the surface for each of the active defects. This helps to take things like heart color and pith into consideration in the optimization result to achieve a balance of optimum board width and maximum quality. This calculation can also be used for species that contain heartwood to cut as many two-faced, non-discolored boards as possible.
Logeye 600 Multi-Sensor Quality scanner uses a combination of different sensor techniques in combination with artificial intelligence to obtain a brilliant defect detection on the scanned material.
