Welcome to the latest issue of WoodTECH.news.
There is a lot of early interest in WoodTECH 2019. The full programme was released last month and a large number of mills have already taken advantage of the 40% discounts for group registrations.
In this month’s news, it’s great to see the new investments within the local wood processing industry. A new CNI debarking operation has opened in Murupara, Laminex Australia has expanded their South East Queensland operations and a second thermal modification chamber was added to Reporoa, New Zealand-based Donelley Sawmillers.
Two world records are also covered in this issue. The world’s fastest band saw line is housed in Sweden and can reach 156 metres per minute – please let us know if you know of any faster! In New Zealand, construction has just begun on the largest single span timber arch aircraft hangar in the world.
Finally, the Forest and Wood Products Australia (FWPA) has just launched a new brand, The Ultimate Renewable™. The key goal is to educate and inform the public on the sustainability and environmental advantages of timber. The climate is clearly a major concern for many and a shift to use more renewable resources, like timber, is the way forward.
That’s it for this month. Enjoy this latest issue.
