Application Date:

On going since 1983


Application Situation:

With the advent of new, smaller and more efficient computerized lumber mills, efficiency has become the key word and mills can no longer use outdated methods to ensure positive transfer of lumber.



Lumber is transferred from one section to the next by a system of transfer rolls. To prevent slippage, past practice was to weld knobs or streaks across the roll surface. This would simply bounce the lumber to where it was required.
