Pressure on lumber pricing and processing costs demand that lumber manufacturing be done in the most efficient way, extracting the maximum amount of value from every log that enters the mill. Nature, however, does not make this an easy task, as every log is different in grade, shape, and species.
The proven solution to these challenges in wood optimization is to employ 3D laser and color scanning. Laser and color scanning provide dramatic improvements in yield and value recovery in all areas of lumber manufacturing.
LMI has pioneered scanning solutions in the wood industry for 50 years. Read more in their two-part blog series that introduces their Chroma+Scan and Gocator solutions for sawmills.
