Determining the usable area of untrimmed wooden boards

The Ruler3000 3D vision camera delivers a precise three-dimensional image of the longitudinally transported wooden board. These data provide a basis for precisely determining the position of the wane. Furthermore, it enables the usable area of the untrimmed wooden board to be determined and the optimal yield of wood to be calculated. Ruler3000 comes standard with a high-end laser scatter function that detects small burls and other defects like soft rot and blue stain.
