The tannery industry is rapidly scoping out the technologies that will future proof their business – and the industry in its entirety. Mindhive offers two key solutions to help transform the tannery industry. Model V Grading is the AI-powered automatic grading solution that fits into existing tannery environments. Leathertracer offers the highly requested traceability in its most efficient, robust form while providing internal transparency. Combined, these two solutions set the tone for your tannery of the future.

The smart tannery

Mindhive partners with tanneries looking to embrace smart technology that will propel their business forward. With Mindhive Model V Grading, tanneries have full visibility on the true value of every hide while maintaining optimal speed of processing. With Leathertracer, tanneries finally have a robust answer to traceability. Both solutions help tanneries, as well as the leather industry as a whole, better arm themselves with accurate and transparent data.

Grading with AI precision

Grading with AI precision

The precision of grading requires a highly trained eye to be able to detect every blemish or mark. This makes AI (Artificial Intelligence) an outstanding match for the task. The AI in Model V Grading is trained to identify the smallest of features – some undetectable even to the human eye.

Optimise the value of your hides and see rejects drop – all whilst your customer receives exactly what he ordered.
