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.

It used to be that lateral scanners were very expensive and a select group of manufacturers could either afford or justify them. Not anymore!
