Chilean sawmill upgrades its edging and sawing lines

The Mestre sawmill situated right outside Constitución has earlier ordered a new Catech 400 TS-4 edger optimizer from Söderhamn Eriksson. Even before taking this new line into operation, Mestre has decided to now also upgrade its saw line with a 3D-scanner and optimization as well new log and cant infeeders. These investments are intended to increase sawing yield, which also means that the sawmill will need less manpower while increasing its capacity. Today Mestre produces some 60,000 cu.m. lumber a year.
