Lucidyne's GradeScan was installed in Anthony Timberlands's Bearden, Arkansas, mill in January of 2013. Installing Lucidyne's GradeScan moved the mill from a partial auto-grading with a linear geometric-only system to a fully automated grading. The company faced such positive production results while operating the scanner in such a brief time, they moved quickly towards getting a second system installed. Anthony Timberlands ordered a scecond scanner for its Malvern, Arkansas mill, which will be installed early 2014 for a January startup.
According to Dan Gibbs, Vice President of Technical Services, "The opportunity cost was too high to NOT buy another scanner". Anthony Timberlands produces a wide variety of Southern Yellow Pine lumber products, including 2" and 4" Dimension, Commons, Decking, and 6" Timbers.
