ARBOTOM®

Tree tomography

arbotom.jpg The ARBOTOM® is a novel impulse tomography unit that enables an inside view of condition of trees and round wood. Hidden decay, invisible cavities and cracks and how large they are become visible with ARBOTOM® using sound impulses.
 
 

Applications

  • Determining the safety of trees
  • Measuring the wood quality of trunks and round wood

Properties and advantages

  • Precise localization of defects in trees and round wood
  • Tree-friendly because quasi non-destructive
  • Easy-to-understand tomography presentation of the measured results
  • Easy and exact damage assessment
  • Quick evaluation directly on location
  • Simple handling, optionally via a miniature PC or a notebook computer
  • Two- or three-dimensional measurements of the internal condition of trees and subsequent display, also in case of larger tree diameters
  • The weakest zones and the areas with the lowest residual wall thickness of the tree are detected with the help of sensors (typically 6-24).
