Sawmill of future: What does it look like?

The BID Group is leading the way in several areas related to Industry 4.0: IIoT, augmented reality, robotics, artificial intelligence, and designing the next generation of sawmills and is sending three experts to show us what the sawmill of the future looks like. Join Diego Braido dos Santos, director of the Applied Artificial Intelligence, David Dubé, director of robotics division and Sylvain Dionne, senior VP of sales and customer experience, as they share their vision of the sawmill of the future: a sawmill that will be powered by a combination of cutting-edge technologies and an inspired workforce. They will introduce innovative technologies and their individual impact on operations, and how they all integrate to build the sawmill of the future.

Energy transition: Good for the environment and the bottom line

The energy transition in the industrial sector must be achieved by 2050. Incentives are available to initiate the transition, offered by energy suppliers or by the various levels of government, but where can one start a project? Martin Tremblay, owner and head of business development at IDÉA Contrôle, an internationally recognized energy management equipment manufacturer, will share their efficient and effective tools to simplify the energy transition, which can reduce your mill’s emissions and costs.

Plus, network with our exciting group of sponsors who are releasing cutting-edge technology to the market.


Seats are limited and open only to sawmill management and owners, process engineers, continual improvement managers, optimization staff, researchers and design consultants.
