From the debarker the logs are then processed into cants by the two Corley 7-foot headrigs. They are 17-degree tilt super straight line carriages with state of the art optimized scanning by Lewis Controls. They are run with two 385 Tyron Berry shotgun feeds.
After being turned to their best face, the cants are processed through the Corley 7-foot vertical band resaw where most of the grade lumber production takes place. When the grade lumber is mostly gone, we shift the cants to the gang to be processed in a single pass.
The lumber proceeds to the Corley optimizing edger from the resaw. Also equipped with the Lewis Controls, this Corley edger lets us fine tune our lumber to put out boards that stand out from the rest of the class.
