Consulting and Alignment Services

Thin Kerf Technologies provides a wide range of engineering services.  We work with operators, trades people and management to develop and implement solutions that have lasting results.

TKT provides the combination of services needed for an effective and permanent change in the mill.  We can, for instance, check the alignment of a machine and provide a prioritized list of improvements, but we can combine this with a training program for your millwrights and saw filers.  We can give on-site seminars for millwrights, filers, operators and supervisors so that everyone involved understands the goals of the program.

TKT consulting programs for the sawmill industry are led by Dr. Bruce Lehmann.   Our consulting programs are based on technical knowledge in saw design and practical experience of machine operation and maintenance.

An important goal of our consulting work is to give the mill personel the capability to make the needed changes.  To acheive this, we work with millwrights, filers, managers and operators to ensure everyone understands what is to be done and why.
