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.

Some of the smartest men and women in the industry have graced the pages of this magazine—and have won the award of Timber Processing Person of the Year. They’ve all been incredibly worthy of this recognition for innovation, commitment and love of the industry they serve. Perhaps none have been quite as innovative as the introverted sawmiller from Georgia named Levi Anderson Pollard, V, whose name is on two of the patents that changed the way the sawmilling world manufactures and dries lumber (and on so many other patents as well).
Walter Jarck, whose career in the forest products industry spanned 65 years and ranged from logging machinery to engineered wood products, died January 3, surrounded by his children, in North Wilkesboro, NC. He was 92.
Carbotech Group has acquired Sawquip, a manufacturing company specializing in the design and manufacture of sawmill equipment for the primary and secondary breakdown of logs into lumber. This acquisition allows Carbotech Group to add on a new field of expertise, providing customers with innovative new solutions for lumber production. Sawquip’s innovative products include log turners and optimized log infeeds, chipping canters, twin and quad circular saw modules, as well as optimized gangs for controlled shape sawing, among others.
