Wood Species Differentiation Technologies

We are seeking for a technology or a combination of technologies to discriminate on line, in real time and in harsh industrial environment different wood species (mostly spruce, pine and fir) whether the wood is in the form of a whole tree-length, a log (barked or unbarked), sawn wood or wood chips, whether the wood is frozen or not.

Thanks for your help.

Regards

Vincent

Vincent,
The upcoming 16th International Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation of Wood Symposium
Beijing, China, May 11-13, 2009, http://www.ndt2009.cn/, is probably a valuable source of information.
My first idea would be a knowledge based visual + IR system. We use LIBS (laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) for concrete type determination (works also for glass or metal sorting). No idea at the moment, if that could help.
Regards, Ernst

We have real-time x-ray based system that can be used for sorting woods depending on its density. The need not have direct with the detector. This may be of your interest.

    
 
 

Product Spotlight

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
