Recovery. Deviation. Wedge. Kerf. Your mill prospers or perishes by these measurements. As the lumber industry continues to recover, it does so by discovering new ways to increase productivity. Precision optical alignment is one of those discoveries now saving millions of dollars a year by increasing log recovery and board quality
