Microtec’s recent acquisition of Lucidyne creates a significant global lumber scanning portfolio. Microtec has demonstrated success across a range of scanning solutions and Lucidyne’s GradeScan is a gold standard for lineal scanning.
Lucidyne now offers a transverse scanning solution to North America, using Microtec’s scanning technology and Lucidyne’s 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, sawmill and stud mills.
The Lucidyne 900 will be sold, installed and maintained from Lucidyne’s U.S. headquarters in Corvallis, Ore.
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 we will continue to invest in R&D to develop and implement leading edge scanning solutions for the North American market.”
