Hosted by CFI magazine and Opérations Forestières, OptiSaw will be offered in with simultaneous French and English translation for all attendees. We’ve lined up speakers from industry-leading manufacturers to talk about new cutting-edge sawmilling technologies and processes, share the results of case studies and provide valuable insights into the future of sawmilling.

The day’s sessions will feature:

  • Revolutionary rotation: Explore the source of rotation errors and possible solutions, including Autolog’s new R-TRAC Rotation Tracking Sensor.
  • Massive opportunity: A case study on Element5’s new mass timber facility in St. Thomas, Ont., with an in-depth look at the highly automated CLT line and the growth opportunities mass timber presents.
  • Management advantage: How the inclusion of the Optical Belt Scale technology in Brunette Machinery’s Chip Supply Systems can help provide a management advantage to the sawmill industry.
  • Top performers: An in-depth dive into the keys to successful sawmill management.
  • Closing the loop: A look at the applications for IIoT in the mill and Williams & White’s newest product, SawSense, which can help mills increase profits by improving efficiencies and reducing crashes and unscheduled saw changes.

PLUS, an on-demand session from JoeScan’s president Joey Nelson about the obvious and not-so-obvious ways new 3D scanners can improve sawmill profitability and make your life easier!
