Ultrasonic Scanning for Pallet Part Grading

  title={Ultrasonic Scanning for Pallet Part Grading},
  author={Daniel L. Schmoldt and Philip A. Araman},
Sorting and grading of wooden pallet parts are key factors for pallet manufacturing quality and pallet durability. The feasibility of ultrasonic scanning for defect detection in pallet manufacturing is examined in this report. Scanning was conducted by two pressure-contact rolling transducers in a pitch-catch arrangement. Pallet part deckboards were fed… CONTINUE READING
