The Variable Tool Opening Debarker

The Variable Tool Opening Debarker (VTO): The VTO will be unveiled in our booth and represents the first true innovation to debarking in several decades. Delivered through the respected R&D team at COMACT, the VTO uniquely applies 3D and vision scanning coupled with closed loop control of the tool arm pressure and opening to allow pre-setting of the tools themselves. The VTO offers ultra-high speed and unmatched results in removing bark, while minimizing tear-out and damage to your highly valued raw material. Come witness the future, today.

Oper8 Digital Platform: Oper8 is the industry’s digital platform for bringing value to your data through the power of predictive analytics. The platform allows you to connect disparate data sources in one cloud-based platform, operationalize complex data models in minutes, and visualize predictive insights in real-time for faster and better outcomes.

Miller Planer Tour: BID Group continues to invest in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and is proud to showcase the opening of the new Miller Planer shop in Washougal, WA – only 20 minutes from the exposition. Please join us on a tour of the new facility and see the Miller Planer system first hand! Tours will run daily from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. as well as 3:30-5:30 p.m., with shuttle buses transporting you to and from the facility. Sign up early at our booth #437!
