When investing in a new measuring system in the logyard, Karl Segerström AB evaluated different manufacturers and decided for MiCROTEC based on the technical features and benefits of the Logeye.

The Logeye multi-sensor scanner utilizes laser and colour to generate a high-precision real 360° shape of the log, based on very accurate measurement data for Log Sorting and cutting optimization.

The Logeye has a high precision both for over and under bark detection, even in the presence of ice and snow, making it an excellent choice for the northern market.

»The features we were looking for, that MiCROTEC was able to provide, were the combination of color cameras and laser triangulation that provides an underbark measurement that has worked very well«

CEO of Karl Segerström

The Logeye was installed in 2023 and is used for measuring, payment grading and sorting. After installation, the Logeye at Karl Sgerström has been producing since day 1.

“The installation of the Logeye went very well according to schedule and we were running on the scheduled date.” Continues Björn Segerström.

For a smaller sawmill like Karl Segerström, Logeye is an ideal investment because of its cost efficiency and high performance.  

»I recommend other sawmills like us to invest in a MiCROTEC scanner. We are seeing a good return on the investment and the results so far«
