  • Products

    3-D laser scanning has revolutionized the wood products industry. Scanning and profiling logs and boards with non-contact laser measurement is a major breakthrough, allowing mills to optimize their cutting decisions and maximize yield. JoeScan® scanners offer the best of ingenuity and technology. Every JoeScan JS-25 scan head is simple to install, easy to use and built tough for maximum reliability.

  • Our Story

    The first generation of 3-D laser scanners for sawmills were complex, unreliable and expensive. In the great American tradition, someone decided there had to be a better way – and then built it. That’s how JoeScan started, and that same principle drives us to continue improving laser scanning. View our Company Profile for a brief snapshot of our story, products and industry applications.
