The Wilkins family owns two mills: WKO at Carson, WA and Mt. Hood at Hood River, OR. Both mills installed USNR’s Lineal High Grader (LHG) a few years ago, and are now updating these systems with the latest technology that provides the benefits of Deep Learning technology for improved lumber grade classification and recovery.
The latest platform that USNR provides for all of its grade scanning systems – both green mill and dry mill, includes Deep Learning technology along with other advancements. New vision sensors, computer hardware, and the latest software load will be installed. Deep Learning technology will provide enhanced detection of knots, pith, bark, and more defects.
