Title: Automatic Edging and Trimming of Hardwood Lumber

Author: Kline, D. Earl; Wengert, Eugene M.; Araman, Philip A.

Date: 1990

Source: Proceedings, 1990 International Winter Meeting, American Society of AGR. Engineers. pp. 1-16.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Studies have shown that there is a potential to increase hardwood lumber value by more than 20 percent through optimum edging and trimming. Even a small portion of this percentage can boost the profitability of hardwood lumber manufacturers substantially. The objective of this research project is to develop an automated system which would assist in correct edging and trimming of hardwood lumber, thereby, increasing lumber value. This paper discusses computer vision and automation design issues for hardwood edging and trimming, potential benefit, current progress and future research plans.
