WoodTECH Update – Issue 4

In WoodTECH, WT Issue Summary by FIEALeave a Comment

Welcome to the latest update for Australasia’s sawmilling and wood manufacturing community. First up this month, details for this year’s WoodTECH series in September have just been released. We’ve been busy working alongside many of you over the last couple of months. Thanks for your input.

Last year, we had a record turnout to the WoodTECH series with over 400 sawmill managers, production and operational staff along with key tech providers attending. In fact, it was the largest gathering yet seen in Australasia of sawmillers, saw-doctors and sawing technology providers from around the globe.

This year, after focusing on the green-mill in 2017 and 2015, after an absence of around eight years, FIEA together with industry will focus the September series on dry-mill or wood manufacturing operations. Programmes for both Australia and New Zealand have just been posted onto the event website. A raft of global tech providers has been built in along with practical troubleshooting for production and operational staff. Check out the story and link below to see what’s been covered. We’ll keep you updated as the programme and exhibitions are being added to both countries.

Aside from the WoodTECH 2018 announcement, this month we’ve got a bumper issue of some 10 stories, including coverage of recent investments and announcements around major wood processing operations across the region, a new range of bandsaw equipment out of Germany being offered by a local supplier, a review of some of the new saw-room equipment on show at the BC Saw Filers Association event that ran in April and we take a look, up very close and personal (try a GoPro strapped onto a log end), inside the new red stag sawing line.

Enjoy this month’s read and if you’d like to contribute, please make contact.
