Know Your Inventory, Now
With the ever-fluctuating market values for wood and biomass, it is more important than ever to know exactly how much material really exists in every deck and pile. The nature of wood as a raw material can make those exact volumes difficult to determine based solely on weight – factors such as species and time from forest to market can influence actual board footage or volume from any load or pile. Despite these challenges, it is possible to get accurate volume measurements in a safe, timely, and cost-effective way.

Safety Above all Else
Imagine measuring log deck volumes or chip stockpiles from a safe distance, without climbing up onto material, and without any assistance required.
Production Goes Uncompromised
Multiple piles of all sizes can be measured each day. Setup takes just a few minutes and measurement duration is quick and easy. Volume results can be viewed and even printed right in the field, the moment after the last shot is taken, and you can produce reports that will impress any accountant. The process of measuring won't slow down mill production and output because you do the measurements when it fits into your operations plan and you get your results without waiting for someone else or some other entity to provide feedback.
