Solutions for increasing mill profits now, at OptiSaw

May 20, 2022  By CFI staff

Measuring forces on the saw blades before actual deviation occurs provides extremely fast feedback that has multiple benefits, leading to increased profits. The primary benefit, often misunderstood, is increased average sawing speed.

Saw+ADD’s Marty Vatkin, a former head filer, is taking the podium to discuss all the benefits at OptiSaw – the one-day education forum for those driving the future of sawmilling – taking place in Kelowna, B.C., on June 9.

Featured presentation: Understanding saw anti-deviation for increased profits

Using R&D results and case studies, Vatkin will explain about how fast reaction to wood anomalies, which normally require slower conservative sawing speed, can allow increased average sawing speeds while lowering the within board standard deviation and producing a high grade of lumber.
