Skeena Sawmills Purchases GradeScan System

Skeena Sawmills has purchased a GradeScan with Perceptive Sight 2.0 from Lucidyne and Wolftek (Lucidyne’s Canadian distributor) for installation in their Terrace, BC planer mill.

After closely watching the performance of Lucidyne’s GradeScan at other Canadian mills, particularly those with the deep learning AI platform, Skeena recognized that GradeScan was the right application for their mill.

All new Lucidyne GradeScans come standard with Lucidyne’s patented Intelligent Grading platform, using deep learning artificial intelligence for unmatched defect detection and grading results.

Skeena also purchased Lucidyne’s Grade-VU Projector System, WarpScan, and EndScan to integrate with the GradeScan system. This project is scheduled for installation in October 2021.
