JoeScan Team Expands

Sawmill scanning company JoeScan, founded in 2002, is once again expanding their team with the addition of two new engineers to their roster.

“We’ve seen a tremendous amount of growth in terms of sales,” says JoeScan president Joey Nelson. “So we have some additional demand on our engineers to answer support questions. But we also want to continue to develop new products and features to make 3D scanning even simpler and easier to use for sawmills.” 

JoeScan has a full product development schedule underway, with a new “super snapshot” scanner model featuring 3-in. laser spacing slated for release later this year. “We designed the Z8 scanner for places in the mill where you can’t move the log or board at all,” Nelson says. “Getting data every three inches instead of every six gives you much more accurate models which means you get better solutions from your optimizer. But there are also instances when you need to run very, very fast, and the Z8’s smaller laser spacing can help you get there.”

New hires Mich Perry and Jack Wright examine a prototype Z8 super snapshot scanner with JoeScan president Joey Nelson.

The JoeScan engineering group is also working on a suite of software features to simplify start-ups including additional diagnostic and calibration tools.
