Cameras scan the board for width,
taper and crook to produce high yields at the ripsaws.
Optional software can be used
to find wane and major defects for even greater yields.
Ulti-Vision™ software produces rip
solutions considering the docking or cutoff solutions at the
high yields are possible. A color image showing
actual defects and real-time solutions allows
operators to see what sizes are being cut and
that yields are as high as possible.
The Ultimizer Lateral Scanners
consist of three major components:
color cameras mounted over the lumber to be
scanned (typically six cameras for 16 ft. long
boards). • A
high-capacity computer to process the scanned
to optimize the best rip yields, based on
customer input and needs.
