IsoDS200 Wood Green-density Automatic Scanners

At GNS Science, the IsoScan team has created and commercialised new generation of non-invasive x-ray, optical, and laser scanners open the way to incredible real-time product knowledge and superior manufacture and processing efficiency, across new and existing product streams, in a wide range of industries.

As a key division of GNS Science, we offer world-leading development scientists, supported by expert electronic, mechanical and software engineers. The Isoscan team has prototyped over 100 unique scanning applications for industry, including solutions to measure density, moisture, chemical composition, contaminants, and physical dimensions for the wood, dairy, wool, horticultural, food and utility industries.

LDS 200 Wood Green Density Scanning System

The LDS200 is a Gamma-ray scanning system that measures the green density of timber ready to be kiln dried. Green density is an accurate measure of the “driability” of a piece of lumber.

Immediate Benefits

  • Minimising over-drying and under-drying
  • Minimising the defects and wastage in machined timber and enhancing the overall quality of output
  • Save up to 1% trim loss through your planer operations
  • Speed kiln drying times by up to 15%
