LMI Technologies Introduces chroma+scan 2400 Series For Log and Lineal Edger Optimization Applications

Precision 3D sensors for high-density, rapid scanning of logs and boards as they travel lineally through wood inspection systems

VANCOUVER, CANADA – LMI Technologies Inc. (LMI), a proven leader in 3D scanning and inspection solutions for the global wood industry, is pleased to announce new sensor models for LMI’s chroma+scan 2400 series. The chroma+scan 2400 series is ideal for delivering 3D shape of boards and logs, at fast scan rates with a wide dynamic range capable of handling black material in challenging lighting conditions typical of sawmills.

The chroma+scan 2400 series includes three models: the 2440 and 2460 for headrig carriage log applications, and the 2430 model for scanning of logs in end-dogging charger and boards in lineal edger applications.

All chroma+scan 2400 sensors feature the product line’s signature compact and rugged design for the demanding environment of sawmills. The chroma+scan 2460 is available in a 4-foot package, and 2-foot packages for the chroma+scan 2430 and chroma+scan 2440. Plus, all models can easily be integrated with current chroma+scan 2440 sensors to offer maximum flexibility in how users install their 3D scanning system.

Unlike competitor products, users can easily set-up large sensor networks using just one cable from each sensor with the industrial LMI Master Hub. Wood scanning requires the use of large numbers of sensors, so chroma+scan’s scalable design is essential to making system installation and maintenance as easy, reliable and cost-effective as possible.

“With the chroma+scan 2400 series, we can now offer our wood customers a 3D scanning solution that covers both lineal log and board scanning with fast scan rates, high data density, superior dynamic range and ambient immunity”, added Terry Arden, CEO of LMI Technologies.

LMI will start taking orders for chroma+scan 2400 series sensors as of July 1st, 2015. For more information on the chroma+scan 2400 series visit http://lmi3d.com/products/chroma-scan.
