Sawmill Process Flow
Phase 1 (Receiving of Logs)
- Upon verification of legality and source, logs are unloaded at our log yard.
- Logs are physically segregated according to its species, status of certification and sizes.
Phase 2 (Grading of Logs)
- Our Quality control team (QC) grades all logs, verify its species and check for defects on each logs.
- Each logs is then documented to ensure proper chain of custody procedure is followed. graded logs are then labeled and sorted for further process.
Phase 3 (Cutting of logs)
- Selected log is debarked, and loaded into the head rig (Head Saw) to be split into workable sections.
- At each band saw, defects on logs are carefully avoided to maximize recovery.
- Timber produced here is then delivered to our sorting plant for grading, sorting and cross cutting.
Phase 4 (Grading & cutting of timber)
- Each cross cutting station has a grader who carefully cuts out the defects detected in the timber.
- The timber is then sorted by sizes, species and lengths into different bundles.
- Each bundle is documented and labeled to maintain the chain of custody.
Phase 5 (Seasoning, Kiln Dry & Storage)
- Timber is then "stickered" to allow adequate air circulation within the bundle and placed under shelter for seasoning before being loaded into kiln dry rooms.
- Seasoning and Kiln drying will take about 1-4 weeks depending on the size and species of the timber to reach optimum working moisture content of 9-13%.
- Dried timber is then checked again by our QC team to ensure its quality. Dried timber is then documented and labeled to ensure traceability of each bundle.
- Labeled timber bundle is then moved to our sheltered storage area, awaiting further processing.
