Nov. 6, 2014 - Gorman Brothers Lumber Limited of Westbank BC has recently purchased a Cambio 460 from Söderhamn Eriksson Inc. This 18" debarker will be installed in June and will run at a feed speed of 300 feet per minute. The rotor is equipped with Söderhamn Eriksson's CamTools with carbide tips and the tool tension is controlled by Air-Ten rotor air bags.

President Gérald Ménard told Canadian Forest Industries that receiving the order from an industry leader like Gorman Bros. is an important vote of confidence.
