Easy money: Upgrading outdated sawmill scanning equipment

Speaker: Joey Nelson, president, JoeScan

JoeScan president Joey Nelson will discuss some of the obvious and not-so-obvious ways that new 3D scanners can improve sawmill profitability and make your life easier. You’ll walk away with better tools for evaluating the return on investment of a system upgrade and the confidence to finally pull the trigger on that project you’ve been putting off.

Joey Nelson
Joey Nelson learned about the benefits and difficulties of sawmill optimization from an early age. After studying engineering at Washington State University, he founded JoeScan in 1999 with the goal of making scanning easier to use, more reliable, and more affordable. In the 20 years since, Joey has continued to raise the bar for 3D laser scanning in sawmills, introducing innovative new scanners with an industry-leading warranty. Today, JoeScan scanners can be found in over 400 sawmills across six continents, and Joey is recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on sawmill scanning.
