JoeScan Introduces New JS-25 X6B Carriage Scanner

JoeScan’s scan heads have been made for sawmills since the company introduced its first scan head in 2002. JoeScan’s newest scanner, the JS-25 X6B, is a high-performance, six-laser scanner, specifically designed for high-density, snapshot-scanning of logs on carriage headrigs. JoeScan JS-25 X6B scan heads can be mounted end-to-end to scan any length of log on six-inch spacing.

The JS-25 X6B was designed to make it easy for optimizers and sawmills to upgrade obsolete carriage scanning systems, often reusing the existing scan frame. To protect your investment, each JS-25 X6B comes with a 5-year warranty and a 10-year product support policy to safeguard against obsolescence.
