Quality control in the lumber industry starts with the accurate sorting of species. To improve the speed and accuracy of sorting, the right hardware had to be selected and a unique software solution had to be invented ...

Quality Lumber Starts With Species Identification

Accurate sorting of wood species is a critical step in consistently producing high-quality lumber.  Without accurately identifying the species, wood can be ruined during the kiln-drying process.

In the chemical identification approach a chemical agent is applied so a  machine vision system can capture the characteristic reaction of the wood.

The limitation of the chemical-identification approach is that consistent identification is affected by temperature, humidity and other seasonal factors.

OUR Solution

Skye automation was retained to tackle this critical challenge.  The result was the invention of their industry-leading wood-identification system.   Our wood-identification technology is now being used by mills with identification accuracy of  95% or more. This has been achieved without the consistency issues caused by temperature and humidity.

Skye Automation’s wood-identification system does not require specialized maintenance staff to operate. The costs and safety issues associated with the use of chemical agents have also been eliminated.
