How hard can log detection be?Speaking of Timbeter and log detection, I am often asked questions like: "How hard can it be? Can't you just find circles in the image?"
Manufacturers produce log poles for power and communication lines. A 60-foot (18 m) pole would typically cost between $1,700 to $3,000. Naturally, manufacturers want to maximize their capital dollars, so counting and measuring wood poles correctly is extremely important. Losing even one single pole can cause significant losses to revenue.
In addition to diameters, now Timbeter detects QR Codes - Perfect solution for those exporting logs in containers!
Timbeter has released the new feature that besides detecting the log diameters and calculating the piece count and the volume, also reads the information from QR codes. In just couple of minutes the QR code detection enables companies to easily and quickly detect the diameters of logs and obtain the information stored within QR codes attached to them. Meaning that, when earlier, companies had to measure the diameters manually and use the barcode reader to detect the information from the tags or codes, now everything can be completed with one photo picture.
All the data is in digital form and can be easily shared or used for further processing.
The team at Timbeter have been catching up with several market leaders within the timber industry who have switched to using Timbeter to measure logs and timber. CEO Vallo Visnapuu spoke to Kuldar Kollom from Dammix about how Timbeter has benefitted their business.
