The completion of installation and commissioning means Pinepac’s Bin Sorter is operational. This has been a mamoth project for the group and to have it up and running is very satisfying. We are now at week 8 of operation and the advantages from its grading, sorting and stacking capabilities managing material from the sawmill and presenting to further processing centres is already producing production efficiences and cost savings.
Data linked with the sawmill is enabling the comparison of mill targets and bin sorter targets, providing greater insight into log resource quality and production efficiencies.
Thank you to all who have contributed to the project, from our own maintenance crew, contractors and production staff.
