Illumination, Network, 3D Imaging & Optimization for the Sawmill 4.0. It is the entrance ticket to your digital production. All information is available at your fingertips. Sawmill owners know their sawmill operations – hour by hour, day by day. Qualified data such as log yard inventory, dimension and quality of every log in the log yard or machinery movements and more are readily available. Microtec Mill Manager & Smart Mill continuously optimize your Sawmill 4.0 operations.
Optiside Front Side Scanner
It detects the cup on the end of the lumber piece in order to correctly orientate the boards. The scanner also measures the distance between annual rings and reliably identifies their orientation as well as the pith-side location. Cup and pith-side location for planer and glulam mills
Optiglue Finger Joint Master
The intelligent Optiglue Finger Joint Master controls, monitors and optimizes your finger-jointing process. Dovetailed finger joint profiles are scanned with HD cameras using laser triangulation technology. The scanner recognizes poor dovetail joint milling immediately after the finger joint preparation.
Optiedge Edger Optimizer
It is your wane scanner for edging and rip optimization installed directly on the alignment and infeed unit of your edger. Optiedge allows edging with precision. Lumber is scanned and optimized directly after the board has been centered and fixed on the saw infeed. Edging with precision

Microtec Mill Manager
Optimize your overall mill processes & increase the productivity of your operations. It is your all encompassing mill wide control and reporting suite displaying real time production information. A production monitoring tool that offers access to up-to-the-minute reports and data for all your scanning & optimization systems and provides an instant analysis of all machine centers in your mill.
Maxicut Best Cut Solution
Provides a new standard of breakdown optimization. It considers geometry, quality and resale value of final products as well as customer specific product quality requirements while evaluating the optimum cutting pattern of logs. The software simulates and calculates the best possible yield and lumber recovery that can be obtained by combining different final products. Maxicut Best Cut Solution determines the saw blades positions of the cutting machines. With Maxicut’s sharp and accurate cutting pattern optimization you can significantly increase the yield of your sawmill.
M3 Scan Moisture Meter
It allows quick and accurate measurement of your lumber moisture content. The modular system measures dried lumber, automatically compensating for the influence of density. The scanner works with most common wood types and sizes, and measures lumber in an extremely precise and repeatable fashion.
Logeye 300 Multi-Sensor Quality Scanner
Enables log sorting according to diameter, length, curvature, taper and quality features as well as bucking and primary and secondary breakdown optimization, extracting the highest value for your plant. Rock-solid hardware, sharp optoelectronics and innovative technology give you the power to increase efficiency, maximize productivity and optimize your production-mix based upon your priorities and value parameters.
iRed is a fast and straightforward infrared measurement solution determining log outlines for basic optimization tasks. The solid measuring module accurately recognizes diameter, length, taper and volume of logs, proven in over 1,500 installations worldwide. iRed is the right choice for determining diameter, length, taper and volume of your logs. iRed can be used for all software applications needing basic shape measurement.
Infrared geometry measurement
iRas Angle Scanner is a two-plane angle infrared scanner for log measurement. The scanner measures the dimensional characteristics of logs. The angular arrangement of the modules avoids accumulations of dirt and significantly reduces downtimes and maintenance costs. iRas Angle Scanner needs no interruption of the conveyor. Thanks to specifically designed filters, iRas is dust insensitive and measures reliably regardless of light influences. This is why iRas Angle Scanner is an essential solution for open-air measuring systems that qualifies for all log and merchandizing yards and saw infeeds.
Interopt Bucking Optimizer
Calculates the optimum merchandizing solution according to dimension, curvature, taper and quality information and optimizes bucking according to real time priorities. Bucking solutions are optimized in various areas within a log to optimize bucking according to the overall resale value of the recovered lumber. Interopt Bucking Optimization controls the bucking saw and the sorting line.
Microtec Grade Scanner
It recognizes manually applied grade, trim and sort marks on lumber and interprets them. Installed on the trimming/sorting line Grade Scanner reads the manual mark assigned by the grader, correlates the corresponding quality or command and sends this information on to the trimming or the sorting system.
Goldeneye 600 Multi-Sensor Quality Scanner
It scans large boards and panels up to 1.8 meters wide. Geometric, visual as well as X-ray Multi-Sensor cameras and sensors localize all types of knots, as well as cracks, discoloration, pitch pockets, bark, pith, wane, distortion and other dimensional defects as well as inner properties.
Goldeneye 500 Grading, chopping and sorting
The new series comes with next generation X-ray technology sensors and state-of-the-art cameras and components. Award winning design and functionality are combined with the most accurate scanning results achievable by a lumber scanner for grading and quality measurement.
Goldeneye 100 Multi-Sensor Quality Scanner
It is the measurement solution for high quality profiled boards coming out of the moulder. The scanner sorts out low quality boards and mouldings with dimensional defects to guarantee constant high quality output of your profiled boards. 100% moulding control for perfect profiled boards
CT Log Computed Tomography
Allows continuous, qualitative and full 3D log reconstruction. For the first time, size and position of internal wood defects can be accurately described in all three dimensions. Using the internal defects, CT Log evaluates appearance, quality and strength and assesses their impact on the final products before the physical breakdown of the log. Sawing and bucking solutions are continuously optimized based on the highest quality and resale, allowing production to be managed according to real-time priorities.
Goldeneye 800 Multi-Sensor Quality Scanner
Maximizes recovery for high-speed planer mills and manufacturers of construction lumber and high-speed applications. Ruggedness, speed and measurement precision are key for high-performance planer mills and manufacturers of construction lumber products.
