Lateral Lumber Defect Scanner

Optimal Placement of Boards in Rip Saws

The Tisfoon Lateral Lumber Defect Scanner automatically detects defects, knots, and wane as well as the shape of the board for optimal placement inside a rip saw. The system may be retrofitted onto existing rip saw feed systems and is currently compatible with the Mereen Johnson 4+2 rip saw and fixed arbor saws.

The camera box is only 18 inches by 12 inches by 4 inches. It is hung from the ceiling about 11 feet away from the board. no special lighting is needed, but the area should be sufficiently lit.
