Cascade Hardwoods invests in Microtec CT Log Scanning technology

Cascade Hardwoods recently invested in Microtec’s CT x-ray newspaper scanners and Logeye 900 stereo cart scanners for their facility in Chehalis, WA.

The X-ray CT scanner uses computed tomography x-ray reconstruction to detect internal defects, including knots, cracks, rot, and bruises. This information is then transmitted to the Logeye 900 Stereo Carriage scanners where each segment will be recognized via fingerprint technology, optimized for optimal rotation and distribution, then sawn to obtain the most value-added solution.

“Microtec is very excited to partner with Cascade Hardwoods on this project as it features cutting edge CT technology in combination with the flexible cutting capabilities of Headrig sawing. Even the smallest sawmills can justify and benefit from the tremendous advancements in Microtec X-ray technology, ”says Norvin Laudon, CT Applications Specialist at Microtec.

Microtec’s location in Vancouver, Canada specializes in providing advanced newspaper scanning and optimization solutions to the North American market, from cut-off to primary and secondary breakdown. Visit for more information.
