Cind AB has developed a product for precise 3-D measurement of stacks on timber trucks. The system is based on stereoscopic technology developed by Sweden´s fighter aircraft manufacturer Saab AB. The Cind system accurately measures volume as the truck passes through the system, thus allowing for instant and precise volume measurement.
”Saab is probably the world leader when it comes to this technology and has launched a number of spin-outs using military technology in commercial products in applications from mapping to industrial measuring technology. We are an example of the latter,” says Cind CTO Anders Nyberg. “We have a license for the technology and will supply the industrial sector, primarily the pulp & paper and sawmilling industries. For global distribution and service, we will partner up with Microtec who is one of the leading suppliers of image-processing systems for the sawmilling industry and also one of the investors in Cind,” says Anders.
“We have now installed and approved Cind´s first system in our railway terminal in Mora, Sweden” says Olle Pettersson CEO of Trätåg AB. “It is a pilot installation that will be used for BillerudKorsnäs´and Stora Enso´s timber and also for certification by various organizations and authorities. Once the pilot installation is approved we will install a second system at another terminal later this year,” says Pettersson. “Our ambition has always been to use the best tools available on the market for our business,” says Olle Pettersson.
“In addition to the pilot system to be supplied to Trätåg AB, we have agreements for three additional systems to some of Sweden´s most prominent forestry industries. In order to further develop our product, we have initiated a Vinnova- funded project together with VMF and Luleå University of Technology with a view to developing new intelligent algorithms to increase automation and efficiency in Cind’s products for measuring timber stacks,” concludes Cind’s CTO Anders Nyberg.
Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), a member of the SATS Group, will deploy Cind’s ContourSpect 3D modelling software at selected stations across its Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia (EMEAA) network following a successful Proof of Concept (POC) in its cargo terminal at Copenhagen Airport.
