The alignment conveyor improves log feed to Kadant Carmanah's
The production of OSB relies on quality strands. In tree length processes, logs tend to misalign with the cutting edge of the strander, not parallel to the face or grain of the log, this impacts strand quality. The alignment conveyor, while moving the logs, gently shuffles the log pocket to align the logs so they are presented more parallel to the cutting face of the strander.
The action of shuffling the logs during alignment increases the density of the log pocket, reducing the volume of air voids. Replacing voids with a higher volume of
