Split Detection

Split detection for logs is an optimization solution that improves log rotation and log breakdown processes. USNR has developed a powerful technology to detect and optimize split logs that can improve lumber yields by 2-5% and reduce the volume of split reject boards produced by as much as 80%.

Smarter log breakdown

USNR’s split detection system uses visual and geometric scanning to identify splits on the surface of the logs. The USNR optimizer then calculates the optimal solution considering the splits based on grade and value.

Features / Benefits 

⦁ Improves recovery from dead, dried out logs.
⦁ Reduces handling of downstream reject lumber.
⦁ Costs significantly less than competitive split detection solutions on the market.
⦁ Can be added onto existing USNR auto-rotation scan zones.
