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