WoodTECH News is a platform for regular communication and networking amongst Australian and New Zealand sawmilling, wood manufacturing and timber treatment companies along with key suppliers to this part of the industry. This monthly newsletter was launched in late 2017.

Who’s it aimed at?

Site managers, production and engineering staff, green-mill and dry-mill managers, saw-doctors, those involved in mill maintenance, kiln drying, timber machining, finger-jointing, wood finishing, timber treatment …. anyone really that’s involved in wood products in Australasia.

Why was it set up?

Many of the industry networks such as the saw-doctor’s groupings that worked so well in the past in Australia and New Zealand no longer exist. WoodTECH delegates and those involved over the years with events run by the Forest Industry Engineering Association (FIEA) have suggested a platform for more regular communication and networking amongst themselves really needed to be set up. WoodTECH delegates at the 2017 series suggested that the website (www.woodtech.news) was the logical tool or vehicle to make this happen.

What’s it include?

The platform has been set up. It’s actively being used by all those working within the industry. As well as annual technology gatherings, the WoodTECH website is being used to provide the very latest updates on breaking news, research results, reports, troubleshooting tips, practical guidelines to improve operating efficiencies, information on new technology and links for those involved in processing, manufacturing or treating wood in Australasia. The monthly newsletter complements the two very popular weekly e-newsletters, www.fridayoffcuts.com and www.woodweek.com, as well as the monthly industry magazines already being produced for those working within the industry.

While we do want to promote local and international content and experts, it is also important that we provide the right balance and depth in the stories - this includes minimising or removing, where possible, sales pitches. A good story could be a detailed case study, new technology, research, discussion on issues, or industry news. It could also be, as an example, tips on improving maintenance schedules, how wireless sensors are providing better monitoring, new material types for circular saws, etc.
