Scanning sooner: Moving grade optimization into the sawmill

March 16, 2017 - Auto grading is standard at the planermill, but what happens when you move the scanner into the sawmill for green sawn lumber? What are the challenges and what are the benefits?

Get those answers and more at OptiSaw – the one-day forum for those driving the future of sawmilling – taking place in Richmond, B.C., on April 25.

Featured presentation: Scanning sooner: Moving grade optimization into the sawmill

Novrin Laudon, Springer-Microtec’s chief technology officer, will present on their latest innovation: the new four-sided Goldeneye 900 transverse lumber scanner.

The presentation will explore some of the benefits of grade scanning in the sawmill, with practical examples from a recent installation in Coastal British Columbia.
