JOESCAN USA: THE 3-D LASER SCANNER

The first generation of 3-D laser scanners for sawmills were complex, unreliable and expensive. In the great American tradition, someone decided there had to be a better way – and then built it. That’s how JoeScan started, and that same principle drives us to continue improving laser scanning. View our Company Profile for a brief snapshot of our story, products and industry applications.

3-D laser scanning has revolutionized the wood products industry. Scanning and profiling logs and boards with non-contact laser measurement is a major breakthrough, allowing mills to optimize their cutting decisions and maximize yield. JoeScan scanners offer the best of ingenuity and technology.

Every JoeScan JS-25 scan head is simple to install, easy to use and built tough for maximum reliability. The JoeScan JS-25 scan head’s performance is based on simple trigonometry – principles that have been used in surveying for centuries.
Overview of the scanning process:
1. As each piece passes within the JS-25 scan head's view, the built-in laser projects a line of light on it.
2. The JS-25 scan head's built-in camera views the laser as it intersects the piece, gathering precise data on the piece's shape and dimensions.
3. Based on that information, the JS-25 scan head provides data in engineering units so the overall system can interpret it and make optimal decisions.
You can use the resulting information to more precisely align cutters or other machinery, increasing both your production efficiency and quality control.
