Sawmill Scanning & Optimization is one of the featured subjects planned for the Workshop Day of the upcoming Timber Processing & Energy Expo to be held at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore. The machinery expo will be held October 17-19. Workshop Day is planned for October 18.
Several presentations will address various technologies in sawmill scanning/optimization, ranging from scanning at primary breakdown to lumber grade scanning on the back end. Other featured subjects include Machinery Alignment & Sawing Systems, Wood Dust Issues & Technologies, Veneer Lathes & Technologies and Wood Energy Developments. Fifteen presentations in all will address these subjects.
The cost to register for Workshop Day is only $75 and includes admission to any of the presentations. For more details on the presentations and presenters, locate ‘Workshop Day Info’ in the menu.

All attendees are asked to register through the show web site.
Organizers of TP&EE also announce that prior to the machinery show, Forest Products Society–Southeast has organized a series of day long Short Courses to be held October 16 at the Red Lion Hotel, Jantzen Beach. Participants include Oregon State University, Georgia Research Institute, Wood Machining Institute and Forisk Consulting.

The Forest Products Society-SE short course program is a separate fee structure and separate event from the Workshop Day scheduled during the TP&EE machinery event.
