Welcome to File Week 2020!

May 4, 2020  By  Ellen Cools

It’s that time of year again – time for Canadian Forest Industries’ annual File Week!

For the fourth year in a row, we will be sharing the latest on filing rooms, from advice for training new sawfilers to the latest in automation technology.

We’re posting cutting-edge content both from our archives as well as brand-new stories and product news. Unfortunately, COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the BC Saw Filers Association convention, which means we won’t be bringing you videos of new products from the event like we have in previous years.

However, we are hosting two webinars this year – one on May 6 at 1:00 p.m. EST and the other on May 7 at 10:00 a.m. EST – focused on improving efficiency and productivity in the filing room and in the mill. For more information on those webinars, click here.


During File Week 2020, we’ll be highlighting:

  • Stories from the filing room
  • Technical articles on saw filing
  • Tech updates on the latest saw filing gear
  • Columns and profile stories
  • Strategies for training and employing the next generation of filers, and more!

CFI’s File Week landing page is a hub for sawfilers and other stakeholders to learn best practices and find the latest information on advancements in saw filing technology. Our landing page is live all year under the tab sawmilling/File Week.

Find the landing page here, and enjoy File Week 2020!

Special thanks to our sponsor, Supersaul Chemmex.
