Innovating Wood

FinScan is now MiCROTEC Espoo

We exist to make our customers perform better!

We are on a mission to make sawmills more profitable. Using the latest scanning technology and AI boosted software solutions, we unlock the maximum value of the most precious commodity in the business – raw materials. The use of data will transform everything. Put simply, our customers can move from cut-to-stock to cut-to-demand.

Our unique technology is now boosted with Buzzard® artificial intelligence. This software, with artificial neural networks, allows the system to be programmed to learn and adapt to the unique operating environment of each sawmill.

As a member of the Microtec Group, a global leader in the wood scanning industry, we have a solution for every sawmill.

Technology that makes a difference

By using a data-driven optimisation approach, every sawmill can improve its competitiveness, quality and sales value.

  • Knowing what’s inside every log enables cut-on-demand.
  • Software for the centralised data management of logs, patterns and best use creates a unique fingerprint for all material.
  • Artificial intelligence significantly improves defect detection and the speed of image processing.
  • Software-based, machine-strength grading significantly improves yield of value-added products.
  • Artificial intelligence-based enhancements accumulate and enable a sawmill to continuously improve its performance.
