Background

TräCentrum North is a co-funder in a WoodWisdom project financed by Vinnova. Based SP Wood and LTU's expertise in the use and development of X-ray technology for sawmills and TCN-companies' future use of this technology is coming TCN participating in the project to
ensure that Swedish industry needs control the development of the project and the final industrial system.

Goals, objectives

The objective is to:

  • develop technologies for industrial tomografering of hours at least 120m/min and
  • develop strategies for how the information from tomograferingen be used to create as much benefit as possible in the process control
  • ensure that the system is adapted for Swedish sawmill needs with respect to the property and defect detection and process alignment

CTPro TCN and this project will result in an industrially useful tomograph to manage environmental, process and operational requirements for the sawmill. Specifically for TCN is to ensure that tomografen has algorithms and system adapted for Swedish sawmills.
