USNR-Soderhamn Eriksson is your single source supplier for complete carriage systems. We design, manufacture and service all mechanical parts, electrical systems, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, scanning and optimization systems, and supply original replacement parts.
The Log Master Carriage offers heavy-duty construction that stands up to the most demanding sawmill environment. Log Master uses servo-controlled linear positioners for precise knee alignment, and features straight line positive dogging to eliminate potential mis-cuts. Choose from two to five knees that can slide with minimal friction on linear bearings for fast log positioning. Knee openings allow any log size from 30-42 inches (76 to 107 cm) in diameter. Our unique round rail system insures precise sawing for greater quality lumber. The controls are ready for 2D or 3D scanning systems thus enabling our carriages to achieve advanced sawing accuracy and higher recovery.
The LASAR sensor-based MillExpert Carriage Optimizer combines dense 3D scan data with the power of todays high-speed computers to let you get the maximum value from every log.
Simultaneous front and back side scanning offers unparalleled accuracy and data density. It is the only system capable of full log breakdown grade sawing and can also be configured for MOF (minimum opening face) in hardwood applications.
The system provides detailed breakdown rules that can be set for each species, grade and fiber class along with other options including configurable face cut orders, configurable minimum opening face sizes and lengths, half taper, full taper, and no taper options.
With unparalleled accuracy and simultaneous front and back side scanning, it is the only system capable of full log breakdown grade sawing that can also be configured for hardwood MOF applications. This full coverage 3D scanning sensor has unparalleled resolution and data density providing more accurate log volumes, and better monitoring of yield.
