Terminal Forest Products located in Richmond, B.C., is investing in a new log positioning infeed system. The new system feeds an existing chipper canter, twin bandmill, and double-arbor gangsaw. The new equipment is scheduled to be installed early in 2023.

The new infeed system will include an autorotation log scanner upstream from a quad roll log turner and Precision Geometric Log Rotation (PGLR) system. The PGLR system simultaneously verifies the accuracy of your autorotation system and automatically makes any necessary correction turns, ensuring you get the best turn on every log.

The PGLR utilizes USNR’s BioLuma 3900L lineal sensors that deliver more value and recovery through advanced optimization. These sensors are designed and manufactured exclusively by USNR.

The Increased scan data and the flexibility of the new infeed will allow the customer to recover more value and fiber from each log.
