The beam cut optimization and scanning system M4

M4 scans and analyzes wood beams from four sides and generates the best cut, based on visible wood properties in every plane, required products for each thickness, product prices and sizes. 

M4 is part of the sawmill beam cutting woodworking equipment and controls the machinery to select a plane to cut, controls the feeder into a chain saw or rip saw and controls the thickness of the next cut.

As a result, the beam is automatically cut into the wood planks in the most efficient and valuable way delivering extra value from the source material at the same time.

Final cut into the final material may be implemented using M2 cut optimisation and scanning system, which then scans the raw plank from both sides and manages multi saw system to optimize further processing of the wood.

The wood beam is analysed using machine vision using visual data, 3D scanning analysing beam profile, dimensions and surface properties,  artificial intelligence recognising wood defects and optimization algorithms which analyse billions of possibilities to select absolutely the best cut in every cycle.

Fully automatic solution

M2 is a cut optimization solution for raw wood planks.

M2 is an excellent solution to ensure that you get the perfect cut on every wood item.

  • +10% against human operations

  • Recognizes all significant artefacts of the wood - knots, bark, decay etc.
