OptiSaw West to feature scanner scaling!

May 5, 2016 - Scanner scaling, the use of log scanners to measure logs for payment, is common practice in other parts of the world, but still relatively new to North America.

The first log scanner in North America to be certified by government for trade has recently been installed in a Canadian sawmill, and is being used for log scaling and payment.

FPInnovations researcher Peter Dyson and Springer-Microtec's chief technology officer Norvin Laudon will discuss the installation, certification process, and cost benefits of scanner scaling on June 14 at OptiSaw West in Richmond, B.C.

Seats are limited so register now!
