No Production Stoppage

Using cameras and sawmill lasers, our system is a non-contact measuring system. It keeps the boards moving freely which decreases your down time and keeps your measurements more precise, so you get the most out of each board.

Increase Premium Cuts

Our CMOS cameras and sawmill lasers have a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels. This high resolution provides ultra-precise measurement of warp defects, +/-0.125’’. The high level of precision allows end trimming and cut in two products, increasing your premium lumber output.

Minimal Mill Modification

The warp system only requires 28 inches of space over the length of the conveyor classifier. You increase your profits without making significant modifications to your mill configuration.
