FINSA : Oscant goes fully automatic and true-shape

CIRIS Engineering has installed a new optimisation system on the cant edging station at FINSA's sawmill in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia. This decision was motivated by a need for increased production as well as better yield, and lead FINSA to look for an innovative solution.

The move to fully automatic operation brought to FINSA :
     - optimised and automatic cant skewing
     - full optimisation of cutting pattern, using real shape of the cant, as provided by true-shape laser sensors
Final result : higher throughput and better raw material recovery !
