CONICAL HEAD TESTIMONIAL
Location: Opelika, AL
Machine Center: Sharp Chain
Wood Species: Southern Yellow Pine
Previous Knife System: Brand A
Performance Results: The sharp chain has (2) 6 Knife heads (6 facing knives and 12 long knives). Cortex was installed on both heads to compare the knife life from the previous system. The previous knife system would only last 2 shifts, as the logs would stop feeding. With Cortex, the mill consistently achieves 4 shifts. This performance gain provides efficiency gain with less knife changes, increase uptime, and of course a significant cost reduction.
