Wood surface density scanner
Electronically controlled, automatic drill resistance measurement for trees, hardwood and softwood.
The Rinntech Lignostation is a compact, high resolution system for preparing wood surfaces and recording the tree ring parameters and the wood density. Lignostation was developed in cooperation with the University of Freiburg, Germany. A precision mill prepares the measuring radi on the wood surface. Then, precise scans are obtained using a high-frequency probe. At the same time, optical scans of the surface can be made and analyzed in comparison with the image.
The entire system is computer controlled and relieves you of a great deal of time consuming routine tasks. You attach the sample, define the measuring radius on the PC screen, and Lignostation does the rest, from preparation up to measurement. You can then concentrate on the scientific analysis of the data. The Lignostation is used in various fields of science including dendrochronology, ecology, forestry, geography, and climate change studies.
