The Surface Finish Inspector
For lumber mills, surface finish defects of softwood are difficult to spot. Bodkin Design & Engineering created the Surface Finish Inspector (SFI), a machine vision instrument that utilizes structured lighting and image processing to accentuate flaws.
BD&E created an in-line inspection tool to capture high-speed images of the boards to allow for the continuous automated inspection of lumber products.
