Jordan Lumber, Mt. Gilead, N.C., is upgrading its Lineal High Grader (LHG) to take advantage of USNR’s Deep Learning technology and improved computing capability.
The upgrade includes moving to the new software platform now shared by all the USNR automated grading systems—BioVision in the green mill, Transverse High Grader in the dry mill, and AddVantage chop and rip optimizer in the value added market. The Deep Learning neural network will enhance knot, pith, bark, and other defect detection and classification, and provide highly accurate grade and trim solutions.
The mill’s WinTally sorter management system will receive the latest version release. WinTally works in conjunction with the automated grading system to provide enhanced sorting and product processing.
