Brunette Presents at OptiSaw 2018

Capital is an exciting word in the forestry industry. In the lumber mill business, considering capital expenditure means answering the question: Do you repair or replace, a major piece of equipment?

Patrick Browne ImageBrunette Machinery’s Patrick Browne will present a case study on this issue at OptiSaw — the one-day educational forum aimed at those involved in the sawmill business — happening on June 5, 2018 in Richmond, BC.

Patrick’s study focuses on the log singulator, an innovative machine that notably changed the forest industry in the 1980’s. He explores the pros and cons of investing in the most recent technology or repairing/maintaining existing time-tested units.

OptiSaw, presented by Canadian Forest Industries’ Wood Business, will feature Brunette’s case study along with other topics concerning the future of sawmilling.

Join us at this informative event on June 5th, 2018 at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel, in Richmond, BC. This forum is geared to people associated with the sawmill industry —sawmill management and owners, process engineers, continual improvement managers, optimization staff, researchers and design consultants.
