Created for the wood products industry, BoardMark offers staple-free barcode application on board ends. This revolutionary board-marking system is designed to print barcodes directly onto the end of boards or a similar material. This is achieved by first laying down a thin coat of UV curable ink to act as a substrate for the actual barcode, preventing the ink from being absorbed by the wood fibers. The BoardMark-LB is a direct application of preprinted barcode labels on boards. It applies to any surface, including splits and rough-cut ends. The result is a simple, reliable, low-cost and low-maintenance solution for your barcoding needs.


Concept Systems originally designed BoardHound, which was to be used in the wood products industry to track measurable realtime data with speeds up to 3,000 fpm. BoardHound is a cross-industry product that is configurable to similar applications in any industry.

boardhound-vidIn wood products applications, BoardHound reliably tracks board information from your planer/edger to your trimmer. It does this by applying a series of invisible fluorescent marks on the wood at speeds up to 3,000 fpm as it travels through the sensing equipment. BoardHound then reads the marks back off the wood at the trimmer infeed and correlates the original measurement with the board. BoardHound is capable of tracking all manner of data such as detailed stress information and moisture. Since each mark defines a record number, not the actual data, there is no practical limit to the amount of information that can be tracked with each board. The type of data that can be tracked: stress, moisture, thickness/width, optimizer solutions. If you can measure it, BoardHound can track it.
