ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS CHANGING THE FACE OF OUR INDUSTRY
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has triggered the start of a major revolution in the wood processing industry. AI is here to stay, and you will notice its presence more often in areas like wood grading, robotic applications, identification of operational irregularities on production lines, and automation and optimization decisions.
BID is spearheading this revolution with the most recognized grading solutions in the industry. In fact, the AI-enhanced Comact technologies, combined with our industry-leading optimization software, have proven to be the most powerful and reliable solutions on the market.
Here at BID, we are dedicated to innovation. Stay tuned because our teams are relentlessly pushing the limits of what is possible.
Did you know that you can integrate BID’s AI into most existing scanners in your sawmill or planer mill? BID has developed distinct deep learning AI models for softwood and hardwood based on our extensive knowledge of wood fibre types.
YOUR SOFTWOOD GRADING AND DEFECT DETECTION CHALLENGES ARE IDENTIFIED AND OBJECTIVES ARE SET.
AN AI SPECIALIST COLLECTS AND ANALYZES SAMPLES OF YOUR SOFTWOOD.
YOUR SAMPLES ARE INTEGRATED IN DEEP-LEARNING AI MODELS.
AI MODELS ARE CUSTOMIZED FOR YOUR PRODUCTION IN ORDER TO ATTAIN OBJECTIVES.
“We switched to our current GradExpertTM, which uses AI (deep learning), in July 2019 and the results are incredible. BID Group has provided us with a high-quality system, excellent service, and a professional, highly trained, dedicated group of employees to work with. We are so impressed with our results that we will continue to use/install these systems at all our sites. The AI can adapt to changes in fibre, different species, and wood defects. In my opinion, it is the best investment we’ve made in our planer mill.”
