Precision Geometric Log Rotation is a real-time rotation verification and correction system that ensures you get the best turn on every log, significantly improving cutting accuracy and increasing uplift and recovery.
This simple solution to an often hidden problem adds profit to your bottom line in the form of higher recovery and increased production of more boards, longer boards and more wane-free boards, all with no extra mechanical hardware.
PGLR works on Dual or Quad roll log turners, Donut Turners, Sharp Chain log turners and End Dogger systems, enabling you to convert a manual system to a semi-automatic system or a semi-automatic system to a fully automated precision log turning system.
PGLR simultaneously verifies the accuracy of your autorotation system and automatically makes any necessary correction turns, ensuring you get the best turn on every log. The system uses the same standard TriCam scan zone that the MillExpert Turner uses, placed upstream or downstream of the turning rolls to actively monitor and correct the turn during and after the turn.
- Significantly improves your cutting accuracy - Increases uplift and recovery - Allows you to cut more boards, longer boards and more wane-free boards. Consider that a mis-turn of as little as 2° could wipe out an entire board in a small log.
