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.
