It was established based on a private enterprise that operated between 1994 and 2005, thus our company has more than 20 years of professional experience. We invite you to look around, browse our products, peruse our downloadable materials, and to contact us if you have any questions!

Product History

1994
Microsecond Timer

General purpose timer for wooden structure evaluation, predicting wood stiffness, and detecting hidden defect inside trees. This version of the product is discontinued and superseeded by the newer version released in 2001.

1996
Screw withdrawal Force Meter

Predicts wood density. The higher the screw withdrawal force is, the higher the material density. More information about the most recent revision of this device can be found at the Screw Withdrawal Force Meter product page.

1998
Portable Lumber Grader

Allows quick measurement of lumber MOE – Modulus of Elasticity. See the Portable Lumber Grader product page for the most recent revision of this device.

2000
Fakopp 2D

First step in accoustic tomography, simple evaluation. This version of the product was discontinued and superseeded by the newer version released in 2001.

2001
Microsecond Timer

New design, new starter sensor. See the product page for more details.

2002
Fakopp 2D

Cell based inversion algorithm. This version of the product is discontinued and superseeded by the ArborSonic 3D Accoustic Tomograph released in 2006.

2005
TreeSonic

Industrial version of Microsecond Timer for wood stiffness determination – sensors are equipped with a sliding hammer for quick operation. See the FAKOPP TreeSonic Timer product page for the most recent revision of this device.

2005
