Automated Stick Inspection

IdealSTICK utilizes advanced machine-vision technology to identify defective sticks in automated sawmill stick-hopper filler systems. Mounted above the lugged stick infeed transfer, a camera system captures images of each stick as it passes under the camera. By comparing the captured stick image to baseline reference features, significant geometric data can be determined for each stick. From this data a "pass/fail" grade can be determined for each stick. This signal is then communicated to the stick-hopper filler control system.
