Lumber, Timber and Wood Products

Laser Sensors for the Lumber, Timber and Wood Products Industries


Laser sensors are used widely in the lumber industry from bucking lines to length of logs and many other high speed length and width applications. Acuity sensors are suited for wood product production due to their high speeds, high accuracy and quick return on investment. Our displacement sensors are ideal for measuring the length of lumber, thickness measurement of particle board, MDF and OSB targets. Our Laser Line technology is used more and more to measure the surfaces of targets, edge profiles and squareness of products like doors, windows and shutters. Our rugged sensors are suited for applications in lumber, logging, timber and paper industries.

This application list is not intended to be exhaustive. The measuring tasks are by no means limited to these examples, and may serve as a suggestion for similar or completely different applications.
