Lampe & Malphrus Lumber Orders New USNR End Dogging Carriage Line

USNR is replacing the headrig system at Lampe & Malphrus Lumber Co. with a new end dogging carriage line, including the log infeed using belts, chains, and ending screws; pinnacle feeder; USNR carriage optimization with LASAR; reciprocating EDC with rotation; conical chip-heads with board and cant separators; a single pass resaw; an inertial separator to separate the split cants, and numerous belted and chain transfers.

This order comes on the heels of another significant investment for Lampe & Malphrus, a new optimized edger line from USNR slated for installation in early 2023.

“The new primary breakdown will allow us to meet our customer’s growing demand for quality lumber while improving recovery and the health and safety of our team members,” comments Will Lampe, President & CEO, Lampe & Malphrus Lumber Co. USNR believes the new carriage line will help logs move through faster and with a higher-quality end result.
