Abstract The successful running of a sawmill is dependent on its ability to achieve the highest possible value recovery from the sawlogs, i.e. to optimize the use of the raw material. Such optimization requires information about the properties of every log. One method of measuring these properties is to use an X-ray log scanner. The objective of the present study was to determine the accuracy when grading Scots pine ( Pinus sylvestris L.) sawlogs using an industrial scanner known as the X-ray… CONTINUE READING
