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. Springer-Microtec’s chief technology officer Norvin Laudon will discuss the installation, certification process, and cost benefits of scanner scaling at the OptiSaw Mill Optimization & Automation Forum on Nov. 4 in Montreal.
