The Transverse High Grader (THG) puts our proven grade scanning technology into a transverse package. THG uses the time-tested technology derived from our Lineal High Graders image analysis and optimization software, and combines it with the most advanced sensor available today to accurately detect, measure and classify: bow, crook, twist, skip, wane; knots; pith; stains; decay; bark pockets; splits; shakes; and worm holes.
The BioLuma 2900LVG+ sensor integrates GrainMap technology, XHD color vision and HD laser profiles with bright, white, and cool LED illumination. It collects ultra-high resolution images and precise geometric and grain angle measurements along all four surfaces of the boards, with the highest resolution and fastest sampling rate of any transverse sensor available today. It captures the most minute characteristics of the wood and feeds that data to the THGs optimizer for analysis and classification.
Implementing THG is simple. It fits smoothly into your existing flow. High lug speeds, no elevation changes, no hills to climb. From the sensors on through the entire grading system, THG is designed to streamline the process.
