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