JCE SA, Chile, doubles capacity and increases sawing yield

The sawmill Aserraderos JCE SA in Los Angeles, Chile, has placed an order with Söderhamn Eriksson. Their saw line is to be extended into a straight processing line complemented with a new 3D scanner, optimization and PLC control. This doubles capacity and improves the sawing yield.

The original saw line now to be upgraded was started up by Söderhamn Eriksson in the fall of 1999 and is a merry-go-round line for 90,000 sq.m. logs in two-shift operation.

Delivery of the new equipment will take place in spring 2015.
