Last chance to save on OptiSaw: Early-bird registration extended until Feb. 26

February 21, 2023  By CFI Staff

Take advantage of the low rate for a little bit longer! Register by Feb. 26 for our early-bird rate of $169.

Hosted by CFI magazine, the OptiSaw Mill Optimization and Automation Forum will let you come away with insight into the sawmilling of tomorrow.

The day’s sessions will feature these case studies:

  • CSID: Functional safeguarding of a planer system: UBSafe performed a functional safety system upgrade to a Stetson Ross planer at Conifex Fort St. James, B.C., facility. UBSafe principal Ian Rood will share the results of the project – a safe, compliant, efficient system that was measured to reduce jam clearing-related downtime by 50%.
    Installation of EchoStop system at Clermond Hamel sawmill
  • Secovac installed the EchoStop system, its latest technological breakthrough in the field of drying control, at Clermond Hamel’s sawmill in Saint-Éphrem-de-Beauce, Que. Secovac founder Pierre Gilbert will share the results and how the EchoStop system, designed to measure wood moisture without contact for continuous kilns, has optimized the sawmill’s operations, eliminated the down grade caused by overdrying, increased production and reduced the energy required by fbm.

Get an in-depth look at these projects from those who made it happen at OptiSaw – the one-day education forum for those driving the future of sawmilling – taking place in Quebec City on March 17.


Seats are limited and open only to sawmill management and owners, process engineers, continual improvement managers, optimization staff, researchers and design consultants.
