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.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?

s. This projector incorporates design and safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight. The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device, making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive products. The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always assuring the operator that the source has returned to the safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.
