2018 has seen some great things for Altec, including the completion of our first charger controls and Altec XY Scanner in the hardwood industry. This was Altec’s first project with Columbia Forest Products, which involved the installation and commissioning of the controls and scanner. The Altec team reused the existing charger PLC and IO components, in addition to providing the client with a new XY laser scanning system and solutions PC.
The project went smoothly and as planned. The client noticed immediate, significant improvements and a 3-5% increase in recovery following the installation.
Altec will continue to work with Columbia Forest Products to make improvements to the charger controls and scanner in order to meet their specific industry requirements, as well as looking other at other green end areas such as the lathe and clipping scanners.
