Challenge

  • Visual cameras to detect defects in each plane after a bandsaw cut

  • Stereocameras dor precise log dimsion and shape detection

  • AI defect detection model for 9 pine tree defect types

Solution

  • Visual cameras for defect recognition after each bandsaw cut

  • Stereocameras to detect precise log dimension and shape

  • AI defect recognition model for 9 different defect types in pine trees

Results

  • Precise data collection system for each log

  • Automatized and sped up bandsaw and ripsaw sawing process

  • The maximum yield is achieved for every processed log optimizing for the optimal rotation angle, horizontal alignment against the bandsaw, defects in each plane and their respective market prices
