DescriptionA financial analysis using discounted cash-flow decision methods was completed to determine the economic feasibility of replacing a conventional roughmill crosscut and rip operation with a proposed automated computer vision and laser cutting system. Red oak and soft maple lumber were cut at production levels of 30 thousand board feet (MBF)/day and 5 MBF/day to produce furniture and kitchen cabinet parts.
