VANCOUVER, B.C.— Lucidyne Technologies Inc., a North American supplier of automated lumber scanning and optimization, is integrating its software platform with Microtec's scanning solutions that it develops for the sawmilling and wood processing industry.

Lucidyne will work under the common corporate brand of Microtech to build wood scanning solutions for customers in North America, Australia, and New Zealand.

“The integration of our groundbreaking patented technology and expert team into the Microtech ecosystem brings scale, service, and innovation within North America that wasn’t possible before,” said Mark Hiatt, managing director of Lucidyne. “Our companies share a parallel history and vision that make this a perfect evolution for us — and those we serve. Now, unified as Microtech, we can offer a long-term, strengthened foundation, as well as access to an expanded product portfolio and network of support that will take our customers’ businesses to the next level.”

Lucidyne will merge its patented software platform, which uses deep learning artificial intelligence techniques to grade lumber, into Microtec’s family of scanning solutions. 

The new Microtech Corvallis office, working out of the former Lucidyne location, will join forces with the existing Microtech Vancouver office to become one team serving the entire North American market, as well as Australia and New Zealand.
