This fall, Idaho Forest Group, Athol, Id., will update its log turn technology to USNR’s Precision Geometric Log Rotation (PGLR) system.
The existing system is USNR’s predecessor to the PGLR. While it has improved recovery it’s now time to move to an advanced scanning and optimization platform.
PGLR is a real-time rotation verification and correction system that improves cutting accuracy and increases uplift and recovery. It uses the log rotation solution and a lineal scan zone placed upstream or downstream of the turning rolls to monitor and correct the degree of turn during and after actuation.
PGLR utilizes USNR’s BioLuma 3900L sensor that delivers the highest speed UHD laser profiling for the most demanding lineal applications, perfect for bucking, log lines, shape sawing gangs and lineal edgers.
