Grading with AI precision


Humans train their ‘eye’ for years to become a master grader. Model V learns your grading rules in a matter of weeks.

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.
