Saw science: New research on online saw monitoring

April 9, 2019  By CFI staff

UBC researchers are publishing new research on using sensors to assess the sawing process in terms of surface quality and power consumption. Their main goals are online process control and tool condition monitoring.

UBC Ph.D. candidate Vahid Nasir will present on what sawmills can expect from the research findings at OptiSaw – the one-day education forum for those driving the future of sawmilling.

Hosted by CFI magazine, OptiSaw is returning to Richmond, B.C., to hold an information-packed event on June 13.

Don’t wait to sign up. The forum is limited to an exclusive audience of sawmill management and owners, process engineers, continual improvement managers, optimization staff, researchers and design consultants.
