11 Log positioned For cutting

Sign in to follow this  

One operator controls the saw which first squares the log and then cuts it into dimension lumber. At the controls the operator specifies what size lumber is desired. The computer then measures the log and determines how to get the most lumber from each log. The computer controls the machine which positions the log for each cut. You can see a red laser line which marks the line of the cut to be made. Logs are sawed by a huge band saw. The band for the saw is a 24 foot loop, the blade starts out 14" wide and as it is sharpened it becomes narrower until it can no longer be used.
