Thanks to new innovations in automated sorting
technology, recycling waste wood for panelboard production is helping the wood
sector transition to the circular economy.

Our high-throughput wood sorting solutions combine
x-ray transmission (XRT), NIR, and deep learning technologies to purify and
sort wood chips into Wood A and Wood B fractions, including single fractions of
clean wood and MDF.

The process is completed in two distinct steps. In
step 1, our X-TRACT machine sorts up to 30 metric tons of mixed materials to separate
wood from impurities like inert materials, glass, metals, etc.

After the waste wood is pre-sorted by X-TRACT, our
solutions process wood chips by material type in step 2. Using a combination of
NIR sorting (AUTOSORT) and our deep learning technology (GAIN), wood chips are
analyzed and sorted by non-processed and processed materials (MDF, HDF, WPC and
wood composites).

Our wood sorting solutions allow your plant to process
single fractions of Wood A (non-processed wood) and Wood B products such as
