Starker Lecture Series: Log and Lumber Scanning Technology

Speaker: Patrick Freeman, Group CTO, Microtec, Corvallis

Patrick Freeman is Group Chief Technology Officer of Microtec in Corvallis. He will speak on using artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically grade lumber as well as the use of CT scanning for logs. CT scanning enables mills to see “inside” logs to optimize cutting of logs into lumber. It is common now for sawmills to use laser-based scanning systems to estimate volume recovery. Microtec’s systems allow mills to optimize for value recovery as well given that these systems enable lumber grade to be determined prior to sawing.
