Description: To optimize or not to optimize - that is the question practically every sawmill has considered at some time or another. Edger and trimmer optimization is a particularly hot topic, as these are among the most wasteful areas of the sawmill because trimmer and edger operators traditionally tend to over edge or trim. By its very definition, optimizing equipment seeks to provide the answer to a problem that plagues every modern mill - how to get the most volume, or the best value, out of every board by considering all the alternatives. This article discusses the advantages of edging and trimming optimization for hardwood and softwood sawmills.
