SAWLINES – AUTOLOG

The ProGrader Linear Planer Optimizer Offers the best price-performance ratio in the industry with less than one-year payback. Autolog’s automation solution can seamlessly integrate your selection of equipment from the Tilt hoist to the Stacker. Autolog’s transverse gang, edger and trimmer optimizers, offer the highest precision level and reliability in the industry with a ¼” scan density, along with a user friendly and easy to adopt system, enabling operators to quickly and efficiently master its features. This solution is built with the customer in mind because its modular scanner frame offers an easy and cost efficient installation on site: it eliminates the need to open the roof or rent a crane, requires only a few hours to assemble, allows for assembly directly around the chain races already in place and provides the flexibility to add new technology. The 3D sensors positioned at an angle provide an accurate profile reading on all 4 faces of the board or cant as well as minimize debris and dust thus increasing up-time due to less maintenance.

Last but not least, Autolog’s latest product launch, the GEN3 Log Optimizer. GEN3 is more than just a new buzz word. It’s a new way to build software for the sawmill industry. GEN3 software is built on a stateof-the-art architecture using all the best practices in software development (agile development with sprints and scrum, design and design review, code and code review, continuous integration, unit testing, latest programing language and tools). This is the foundation of GEN3 but what does it mean for mill personnel? Better performance, better tools and simulation features and a rich user interface. High scan density and better

true shape modeling are two examples of their new GEN3 Log Optimizer. Their independency from mechanical manufacturers gives them the ability to optimize any type of primary log breakdown and to replicate any curve sawing from a downstream machine. Better performance also means better control on your process by offering the possibility to select a solution based on a risk factor or to force a minimum opening face on all four faces. Log rotation is an example of how the new GEN3

software can mitigate a mechanical constraint due to wear and tear, in fact, based on the known log rotation error, the optimizer will determine if the selected solution is still viable or change for the next optimal solution.   Whether it is the next generation in log optimization, the most precise, easy to use and reliable transverse optimizer or the easiest grading system to work with, Autolog is built with you the customer in mind.
