Pontrilas Sawmills
  • All up and running...

    by Miranda Hickman

Our Holtec log grading line at Pontrilas Sawmills has gone through the testing stages and is now up and running. The new line allows us to grade each log whichever way around they are introduced and can now be butt reduced on whichever end needs to be. 

On the new line we also have a 'turn table' - this turns each log individually the right way around after being butt reduced and before they are graded into their correct bins.

All-in-all our new line allows us to grade our logs at around 3 times the speed than what we were previously and ensures we keep the mill running as quickly as possible to meet customer demands.
