Trimmer Optimizer Update

Trimmer Optimizer Update

Company: Tolko High Level (a weekend installation with a Monday start-up)

My original study showed a 2.29% increase in recovery over the 3” scan density heads. We did see a dramatic improvement once we had the system tweaked. End filtering, length setup, etc. we climbed to a 3.97% increase. This was at our payback level.

Indicators like re-edge and trim loss climbed slightly but would expect it due to the scan density changes between the systems. Slash has dropped to below 1% where we were typically 1-2% prior to the upgrade.

ProGrader and Controls

ProGrader and Controls

Company: East Alabama Lumber Company

The Autolog ProGrader generates a very strong uplift in all products but greatest was with 5/4. Payback will be less than a year. The ProGrader will grade lumber accurately and consistently at full speed. The Autolog install team did a bang-on job on a flawless execution and education.

Company: Forex Inc.

Under these conditions, a human grader is not as accurate as the machinery that never gets tired and works in fractions of a second. The Autolog tracheid system reads the actual pores of the wood and records up to 27,000 frames per second. For us, it combines to make the difference between a mill that will turn a profit or post a loss.

ProGrader Linear Planer Optimizer

ProGrader Linear Planer Optimizer

Company: Eacom Timber Corporation (Timmins Division )

Autolog's ProGrader linear planer optimizer is an excellent system. Among the many key features our new system has to offer, the best is its ability to pick up difficult to detect defects such as white speck and rot; the system repeatability has also been excellent. Our recent installation went very well and we would definitely recommend Autolog.

Optimizers & controls

Optimizers & controls

Company: Pleasant River Lumber (Moose River Mill)

We chose Autolog for the project because of their reputation as a major supplier of optimizers and controls within the wood industry for 30 years. Although Autolog is mostly known for supplying systems at the back end of the mill and at the planer mill, the company has never stopped selling log systems at the front end of mills. By installing log optimizers and controls, the company has built a strong expertize in controlling machines from many different suppliers. Autolog has also developed a strong expertise in linking all the systems they provide into a network to help support the production by supplying extensive reports for all machine centers. Our project started on time and has exceeded expectations in production and recovery. Furthermore, I understand that Autolog will soon replace two more HewSaw systems at one of the major players in the province of New Brunswick.

Company: Commonwealth Plywood Co. Ltd

When asked how they compare their new Autolog system with the old one we replaced, Mr. Guy Brière, Plant Manager at Commonwealth Plywood Co. Ltd, quoted our system to be much more efficient, with best opening face, excellent recovery and well detailed reports. He also specified that some of the most important features were that there is no black box and that we offer an excellent service, rating the overall quality of our system very high.
