Major projects in Canada and Australia
CARBOTECH IS heading full force into 2016 with two major contracts in Quebec and Australia. Carbotech is the chosen supplier for Arbec Forest Products in Quebec and Timberlink in southern Australia for major projects.
Major modifications to the Arbec sawmill stacking line in Parent, Quebec, consist of installing Carbotech’s cutting-edge, high-speed, dual-forked stacker and its row preparation. Carbotech will also be installing its fully automated stick placer system in order to optimize stacking efficiency. The equipment installation will be completed by Carbotech later this year.
Carbotech will be installing two optimized trim lines at Timberlink’s Mount Gambier sawmill facility in early 2017, and has partnered with the Australian company, Acora, in order to offer a turnkey project. Acora specializes in the sale and installation of equipment for planer mills and sawmills. In terms of control and optimization, Carbotech will work for the second time on Australian soil in conjunction with MPM Optimization of Vancouver, Canada. Specifically, the project consists of installing two parallel trim lines each including an unscrambler, a pneumatic lug loader, an Optigate positioning system and a Carbotech dual-access lineshaft trimmer.
Under new ownership and boasting a new management team, Carbotech’s main goal is to be attentive to clients’ needs by offering highly efficient solutions for sawmill and planer mill lumber handling. Having reinforced their presence on a local and international level over the past year, these orders early in 2016 serve only to solidify, once and for all, the efforts made by Carbotech’s customer service and engineering departments.
