South­ern Cross En­gi­neer­ing Group’s strate­gic part­ner­ship with tech­nol­ogy leader Mi­CROTEC

Australasian Timber - - WOODTECH -

THE SOUTH­ERN Cross En­gi­neer­ing (SCE) Group re­cently formed an im­por­tant part­ner­ship with Mi­CROTEC, a ma­jor Euro­pean tech­nol­ogy com­pany who are world lead­ers in the field of opto-elec­tron­ics, a sys­tem for the non-con­tact scan­ning of logs and tim­ber in ei­ther wet or dry mill tim­ber pro­cess­ing.

They have been set­ting the direc­tion and bench­marks in this mar­ket since 1980.

Mi­CROTEC orig­i­nates from and still has its Head Of­fice in Brixen, in the South Ty­rol re­gion of Italy - a re­gion where tim­ber pro­cess­ing has a long his­tory and tra­di­tion.

Over the years, the com­pany has achieved sev­eral tech­no­log­i­cal mile­stones and has un­der­gone steady growth, a process helped by strate­gic of­fices lo­cated in Venice, Linz and Van­cou­ver.

Mi­CROTEC states, quite sim­ply, that there is no process in tim­ber pro­cess­ing that can­not be ra­tio­nalised, im­proved or speeded up by us­ing Mi­CROTEC tech­nol­ogy.

The SCE Group have part­nered with Mi­CROTEC in the Aus­tralasian re­gion to sup­ply scan­ning and op­ti­mis­ing so­lu­tions for a wide range of pro­cess­ing ap­pli­ca­tions.

Re­cent in­stal­la­tions in­clude mul­ti­sen­sor Goldeneye 300 scan­ners for Waitete Sawmills Ltd and R H Tre­goweth Ltd of Te Kuiti and OTC Tim­ber at Otoro­hanga.

“Mi­CROTEC is the new bench­mark for non­con­tact scan­ning and optimisation,” said SCE Group Gen­eral Man­ager Craig Phillips.

“The link that has now been formed be­tween SCE and Mi­CROTEC is a for­mi­da­ble tool for re­solv­ing tim­ber pro­cess­ing prob­lems.”
