At LIMAB UK, we have more than 30 years’ experience supplying measuring and scanning systems to the sawmills industry, this provides us with a unique insight into our customers’ needs and allows us to provide working solutions that provide measurable benefits in improving sawmill optimisation and yield improvement. We have a broad range of non-contact, laser-based sawmill scanning systems used for the optimisation of sawing, edging and planing operations in all areas of the green mill, dry mill, planing mill and stackers.
The sawmill scanning systems and sensors that we offer are:
- Laser Guide Lines
- Laser Dimensional Measurement Sensors
- Complete Scanning and Optimisation Systems
- Moisture Sensors
Where Our Products Are Used
Products and Applications
|The BoardProfiler is a complete sawmill wane scanning system for scanning boards on transverse conveyors providing high accuracy board measurement and classification for grading/sorting or trim saw optimisation.|
|The BoardProfiler 3D-L is a high definition board scanning system for linear board transportation. The system measures the complete profile and dimensions of the board and calculates the optimum cutting positions for optimising the yield on every board. Can be retrofitted to existing edgers and rips saws improve throughput and yield.|
|The BoardProfiler 3D-T provides very high-density board scanning on transverse conveyors. The system measures the complete profile and dimensions of the board and calculates the optimum cutting positions for optimising the yield on every board. Can be retrofitted to existing edgers and rips saws improve throughput and yield.|
|The LaserSpeed® Pro LS4500, for accurately measuring the length of boards that are transported on linear conveyors.|
|The LMS6048 is the “LIMAB length gauge” for accurately measuring the length of boards that are transported on transverse conveyors|
|The PreciLine Lasers allow operators to pre-visualise the cutting path of a saw blade to optimise the sawing operation and reduce material waste.|
|The PrediktIR II Bulk Materials Moisture Gauge is an accurate and robust non-contact moisture meter using near-infrared (NIR) principle. Suitable for measuring the moisture content in sawdust, wood pellets, wood chip and various biomass materials.
|The ProfiCura Dim is a smart sensor using the latest 2D laser technology that measures the geometrical dimension of a board in both transversal and linear processes. The ProfiCura Dim directly measures the cup, cup orientation, wane and width of the board simultaneously.|
|The TSorter is a non-contact thickness and width measurement system for sorting of wood in sawmills. The thickness is measured with two PreciCura SR laser sensors and will measure any type of wood material.|
