In this application, Hermary Machine Vision scanners are used to capture a 3D digitized model of a log’s shape and dimensions. The digitized model is used by system integrators to create a unique cutting solution for every log, ensuring lumber recovery is maximized and waste is minimized.
Hermary has three different products that can be used in a variety of similar applications and environments. The SL-1880 is used in general applications and the DPS-824S1 has grayscale and outputs geometric imaging that can be used for the detection of splits in logs. These scanners can be used indoors or with the use of a scanner enclosure, outdoors. For outdoor applications, where a scan enclosure is not practical the high ambient-immunity DPS-4024HA can be used in direct sunlight.
