AI in action: A case study on intelligent lumber grading

May 16, 2019  By CFI staff

Lucidyne's Perceptive Sight Intelligent Grading system at Hampton Lumber's Willamina sawmill.

Using deep learning artificial intelligence, Lucidyne introduced Perceptive Sight Intelligent Grading to the lumber industry. Hampton Lumber embraced this technology at three of its sawmills in Oregon and is ready to share the results.

Sit in for this exclusive case study at OptiSaw – the one-day education forum for those driving the future of sawmilling. Hosted by CFI magazine, OptiSaw is returning to Richmond, B.C., to hold an information-packed event on June 13.

Featured presentation: AI in action: US mill implements intelligent lumber grading

Lucidyne’s Ellen Nelson and Hampton Lumber’s Rod Trammell will present a case study on the benefits of automated lumber scanning based on Hampton’s experience at its Oregon sawmills in Willamina, Warrenton and Tillamook.


Perceptive Sight is now the standard software platform for the Lucidyne GradeScan, and is revolutionizing the way lumber is graded. The case study will explore the Perceptive Sight technology, and share Hampton’s experience with this quantum leap in lumber grading technology.

Don’t wait to sign up. The forum is limited to an exclusive audience of sawmill management and owners, process engineers, continual improvement managers, optimization staff, researchers and design consultants. Register now for our early-bird rate to secure your seat at the table.
