LIGNOSTATION

Lignostation is a compact, high-resolution system for preparing wood surfaces and recording the tree ring parameters and the wood density. A precision mill prepares the measuring radii 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 analysed 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 will do the rest, from preparation up to measurement. You can fully concentrate on the scientific evaluation.

Applications include:

  • Dendrochronology
  • Density measurement
  • Dendroecology
  • Dendroclimatology
  • Forestry
