JoeS­can in­tro­duces new JS-25 X6B scan head for car­riage head­rigs

Australasian Timber - - MILL NEWS -

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.

The JS-25 X6B has two cam­eras and six lasers, al­low­ing a stand­off up to 120”.
