Sierra Pacific had very specific requests regarding equipment efficiency, versatility in accepting its non-standard wood sizes and perfecting designs to ensure protection of wood appearance. Following these requests, Carbotech was able to rise to the challenge and demonstrate how its equipment meets these expectations.

Installation of the Carbotech production line will happen later this year and will include the Accugate positioning system, among others. This will be the third Accugate installation at Sierra Pacific this year.

Next, the wood will be passed through two Carbotech line shafts. The first will execute 6’-28’ cuts, followed by a second line shaft allowing for various precision cuts thanks to six moveable saws.

Finally, the outfeed of the Quincy sawmill will be equipped with a powerful dual-forks high-speed stacking system capable of stacking wood from 1×4 to 4×12 and up to 28’ long.
