Small log recovery: Adapting to smart and agile manufacturing
May 10, 2018 - Remaining competitive requires intensified efforts to improve manufacturing efficiency and to extract higher-margin products from the forest resource.
FPInnovations’ SM2 Initiative is revolutionizing the way small logs are processed by developing innovative approaches, game-changing technologies (ex: advanced vision systems, smart machines for real time adaptive control) to maximize recovery and value to offset high delivered log costs.
Get the latest information about this project at OptiSaw – the one-day education forum for those driving the future of sawmilling – taking place in Richmond, B.C., on June 5.
