“It’s the best deal you’ll ever get on workshops exclusive to lumber and plywood manufacturing,” says Rich Donnell, show director of the Timber Processing & Energy Expo (TP&EE), which will be held October 15-17 at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore.

Donnell, who is also the editor-in-chief of Timber Processing and Panel World magazines, says 36 industry professionals will deliver presentations during the Lumber Manufacturing Workshop on Thursday, October 16, and the Veneer & Plywood Manufacturing and Engineered Lumber Workshop on Wednesday, October 15. Both workshops will be held in the meeting rooms above the expo floor in Hall D.

“One registration fee of $75 gets you admission to both workshops, or which ever parts of the workshops you want to attend,” Donnell says. “You also get admission to the expo floor for three days and a ‘beer and brat ticket.’ You really can’t beat this deal, considering the valuable information that will be presented.”

The Lumber Manufacturing Workshop on Thursday, October 16, will include three interactive presentations on saw filing & sawing performance; seven presentations on scanning & optimization; and nine presentations on sawmill operations and quality control.

The Veneer & Plywood Workshop on Wednesday, October 15, will include sessions on challenges faced by veneer based producers; achieving successes at a modern green veneer production operation; several sessions on peeling, drying and grading technology developments; and a panel discussion on meeting customer needs.

An afternoon session will cover developments and technologies in Cross Laminated Timber.

Candidate for governor of Oregon, House Rep. Dennis Richardson will lead off the Veneer & Plywood Workshop with a talk on critical issues for the northwest forest products industry.
