Be the first to hear about this new, innovative technology at OptiSaw West – the exclusive one-day sawmill optimization and automation forum – on April 25 in Vancouver.

Featured presentation: Better beetle wood: Split detection case study

Doug Strasky, primary optimization systems manager for USNR, will share why the new system is particularly applicable to the regions affected by the Mountain Pine Beetle or where logs have similar defects.

But don’t wait. The forum is limited to an exclusive audience of sawmill management and owners, process engineers, continual improvement managers, optimization staff, researchers and design consultants. Register now to secure your seat at the table.
