Real time saw monitoring systems profiled As part of the upcoming WoodTECH 2019 series running in September for local sawmilling companies, new systems for non-contact real time saw performance monitoring will be profiled.

As part of the practical programme set up, Josh Bergen from Precision Machinery, Canada and Justin Williams, Williams & White, Canada will be outlining their systems, both of which will increase your mill profitability and reduce your operating costs. The systems predict saw performance issues, cut back on unpredicted saw changes, reduce oil usage and can lead to mill speed increases.

In the video below, Precision Machinery’s President Josh Bergen outlines their non-contact, real-time saw temperature monitoring system, introduced to the market at the BC Saw Filers Association convention in Kamloops, B.C., a couple of months ago. The small, puck-like wireless sensor is integrated directly into an existing saw guide where it transmits temperature readings in real time via the cloud to allow for remote viewing.



The WoodTECH 2019 event this year has a series of practical workshops built into the two-day events being run in both New Zealand and Australia which will appeal to wide cross section of operational and production staff from mills. Details on the sawmilling tech series can be found on the event website,
