Timber Processing’s October issue features Columbia Vista of Vancouver, Washington for stepping up as one of the most progressive sawmill operations in the Northwest. Costs, efficiency and staying competitive top the list of priorities for participants at the first TP&EE. The Exhibitors Showcase features what exhibitors at the Portland show are planning.
Long known for its high quality Douglas fir export products that target the high-end Japanese post and beam market, Columbia Vista Corp. (CVC) is taking a professional approach to all segments of its operations that include cross arms and even furniture production.
The inaugural Timber Processing & Energy Expo (TP&EE) to be held October 17-19 in Hall D of the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore. may be timed perfectly to witness a significant turning point for the wood products industry.
In addition to the exhibitor portion of the event, the new Timber Processing & Energy Expo will feature Workshop Day on Thursday, October 18. Workshop Day includes 16 presentations on a range of technologies and issues.
Autolog is introducing its best green end transverse scanner to date: the ProTrimmer. This new scanner will reach levels of precision never achieved before. This is made possible by use of the Hermary DPS-824S1 Dual Profile scanner sensors that have an ultra-high density of ¼ in. at 3000 scans/second, which gives the Autolog ProTrimmer a higher width resolution.
