April 9, 2018 - Research by FPInnovations has shown that it is possible to automatically separate Canada’s softwood species with a high success rate. The results can boost productivity at the dry kiln.

Dive into this topic and much more at OptiSaw – the one-day education forum for those driving the future of sawmilling – taking place in Richmond, B.C., on June 5.

Featured presentation:  Kiln gains: Automating species separation

The R&D team at Autolog has partnered with FPInnovations to market a new real-time automated system for identifying and separating wood species based on new technology using near infra-red spectroscopy.

Autolog’s Francis Paquin and FPInnovations’ Zarin Pirouz will present on the productivity gain in the kiln obtained by these methods for separating lumber.

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. Register now to secure your seat at the table.
