Smart sawmilling: FPInnovations to present SM2 at OptiSaw
Nov. 1, 2018 – The lumber industry is facing a significant surplus of wood chips. This situation may well worsen in the coming years as pulp and paper mills consume fewer chips.
FPInnovations' SM2 initiative – known as smart manufacturing and based on the principles of the fourth industrial revolution – is addressing these challenges by revolutionizing log processing.
Serge Constantineau, Wood Products Sector manager at FPInnovations, is among the confirmed at OptiSaw – the one-day mill optimization and automation forum. Hosted by CFI magazine, OptiSaw is returning to Eastern Canada to hold an information-packed event in Montreal on Nov. 28.
Featured presentation: The SM2 Initiative: Smart Manufacturing of Tomorrow
Constantineau, who leads the SM2 initiative, will explain how FPInnovations is developing innovative approaches, agile implements and revolutionary technologies that offer sawmills solutions to diversify their product range.
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.
