Improve quality and decrease wood inspection costs with advanced machine vision
Inspecting wood and wooden elements is a difficult task when done manually. Wood is organic and all items are basically unique. This results in high costs and variations in the inspection results.
Manual inspection of aesthetic qualities on products in the wood industry will typically capture about 70-80 percent of the defects. The problem can be both that items with defects slip through the control and that the human eye incorrectly discards items that are within the set standard.
Machine vision can be used to optimize a number of processes in the wood industry - from sawing the log to quality inspection of the final product.
