JoeScan introduces new JS-25 X6B scan head for carriage headrigs
JOESCAN, Inc., a leading manufacturer of 3-D laser scan heads for sawmills, has released the newest scan head in its JS-25 X-Series, the JS-25 X6B. The JS-25 X6B is a high-performance, sixlaser scanner, specifically designed for high-density, snapshot-scanning of logs on carriage headrigs.
Each JS-25 X6B scan head can be mounted endto-end to scan any length of log on six-inch spacing. The JS-25 X6B was designed to make it easy for optimizers and sawmills to upgrade obsolete carriage scanning systems, often reusing the existing scan frame.
“Because of our dedication to sawmills, we felt it was important to give sawmills a better option for upgrading obsolete carriage scanning hardware. The JS-25 X6B is an easy upgrade that provides higher scan rates, double the scan density, and is based on the sawmill-proven reliability of the JS-25 platform,” says Joey Nelson, the president and founder of JoeScan.
The JS-25 X6B requires only 24VDC and an Ethernet connection for operation. The scanner’s Ethernet interface allows the optimizer to communicate directly with the scanner without special hardware.
“The JS-25 X6B’s built-in profile processing eliminates the need for large numbers of PCs to process the image data, resulting in a simpler, more reliable system,” explains Nelson.
JoeScan’s scan heads have been made for sawmills since the company introduced its first scanner in 2002.
“JoeScan is committed to the sawmill industry,” says Nelson. “We stand behind our products to make sure our scanners are a good long-term investment for sawmills. That’s why every scanner model is backed by a 5-year warranty and a 10-year support life policy to protect against obsolescence,” concludes Nelson.
JoeScan works on the simply philosophy of: • Reliability • 5-year warranty • 10-year product support life policy to protect against obsolescence JoeScan is in a unique position to help customers because it focuses entirely on the sawmill industry and designs its scan heads accordingly. Many suppliers of 3-D scanners to sawmills are now focusing on other markets. Because JoeScan is focused on the long-term needs of sawmills, it backs its products with a 5-year warranty and a 10-year product support life policy and have maintained backward compatibility throughout the product line.
