Bois Daaquam, located in Saint Just De Bretenieres, Que., is investing in a new USNR end-dog carriage line. The new system replaces a dated Forano carriage that has provided good service over many years, and now makes way for new technology that will improve both recovery and throughput.
This new line is scheduled to be installed in 2023.
The end-dog carriage is an extremely versatile machine, capable of horizontal and vertical skewing, and 360-degree log rotation.
This fully automated system makes use of USNR’s proprietary Lasar2 sensors. The Lasar2 scanning system combines dense 3D scan data, and together with USNR’s powerful optimization engine, it is proven to maximize grade recovery in carriage lines around the globe.
