Lewis Controls Gang Optimizer:

The newest Lewis Controls optimizer will be installed in the fall of 2012! Using LMI Chromascan 3D lasers, a cant will be scanned on the infeed table. It will then be skewed and moved into position to utilize the best taper and shim distribution for the maximum lumber recovery.

This system can be installed on existing gangs. There is no requirement to change the lumber flow. All that is required will be modifications to the infeed table.
