Manufacturers produce log poles for power and communication lines. A 60-foot (18 m) pole would typically cost between $1,700 to $3,000. Naturally, manufacturers want to maximize their capital dollars, so counting and measuring wood poles correctly is extremely important. Losing even one single pole can cause significant losses to revenue.
The Estonian State Forest Management Centre has begun using Timbeter’s smart-device application for measuring the pile density coefficient and log volume.
Did you know that you can use Timbeter to measure logs in a container? The present method is to manually count the logs and their respective diameters. A laborious process for all concerned. Timbeter changes all that...
Sometimes it is good to remind why we started developing Timbeter at the first place. For me, coming from IT sector, it was really hard to understand how things work in forestry. How is it possible that measurement is done only with the help of visual observation to determine the pile density coefficient?
