A recent article found on WoodworkingNetwork.com highlighted the PolyPatch panel scan and repair system being used at Georgia-Pacific’s Corrigan plywood plant.

“Our robots can handle 525 plywood panels in one hour—about 1 panel every 20 seconds,” says J.T. Lee, a robotic technician at the company’s plant in Corrigan, Texas. “Normally, it can take twice that amount of time to treat the same number of panels." You can find the full article (which includes the machinery in motion) here:  WoodworkingNetwork Article.
