Goldeneye technology combines with Lucidyne 900 for unparalleled solutions
Microtec’s recent acquisition of Lucidyne has created a global lumber scanning powerhouse. Worldwide, Microtec has demonstrated success across a range of scanning solutions, and Lucidyne’s GradeScan is the gold standard for lineal scanning in North America. GradeScan’s patented software platform, Perceptive Sight uses deep learning artificial intelligence techniques to grade lumber.
Lucidyne is now offering a transverse scanning solution to North America using Microtec’s scanning technology, and Lucidyne’s patented deep learning software platform. Using the Goldeneye 900 series at its core, the new Lucidyne 900 will deliver unparalleled grading solutions to transverse applications in planer mills, sawmills and studmills throughout North America. The Lucidyne 900 will be sold, installed, and maintained from Lucidyne’s US headquarters in Corvallis, Oregon.
As the Microtec and Lucidyne teams continue to combine their technologies, additional Microtec scanners will be added to the Lucidyne product line. Frank Jost, CEO of Microtec states: “Together with Lucidyne, we will continue to invest in R&D to develop and implement leading-edge scanning solutions for the North American market.”
Meanwhile, FH Stoltze Land and Lumber purchased a GradeScan with Perceptive Sight 2.0 from Lucidyne for installation in their Columbia Falls, MT planer mill. FH Stoltze chose the Lucidyne GradeScan after researching scanning systems over the last couple years. According to Trevor Kjensrud, plant manager at FH Stoltze: “Lucidyne’s knowledge, professionalism, customer service, and being the leader in the auto grader industry are the reasons they chose Lucidyne over the competition.”
All new Lucidyne GradeScan units come standard with the Perceptive Sight Intelligent Grading platform, using deep learning artificial intelligence for unmatched defect detection and grading results. The GradeScan system will be installed at FH Stoltze in April 2021.
