SCA invests 37M Swedish Kronor in log-sorting line at 450,000 m3/year Bollsta sawmill in Bollstabruk, Sweden
March 4, 2011
– Bollsta sawmill invests mSEK 37 in log-sorting equipment. The investment comprises a log sorting-line with 80 boxes.
“With a new conveyor and as much as 80 boxes, we can fully utilise our new equipment for x-ray and 3D measuring of sawlogs”, says Katarina Levin, SCA’s sawmill manager in Bollstabruk. “We can sort our sawlogs with a higher precision, improve the yield and ensure we use the right raw material for the right product. We will also increase our log-sorting capacity and allow for a continued production increase at Bollsta sawmill.”
Last year Bollsta sawmill invested in new equipment for x-ray measuring of logs and for measuring of logs in three dimensions, and in other log-sorting equipment.
“Now we have state-of-the-art technology throughout our sawlog handling”, says Katarina Levin. “With this equipment we can fully utilise the high quality of our timber raw material. We will also have a smoother handling of the logs, so we reduce damages and wastage.”
The new investment will be carried out during the summer 2011.
