HarvestTECH News Issue 6

In Summary by FIEALeave a Comment

Welcome to the latest issues of HarvestTECH.News.

Already, we have just started to pull together the programme for September’s HarvestTECH 2020 series – this time running in both New Zealand and Australia. Last year’s event in Rotorua, New Zealand, focussed on harvesting technologies and systems. It sold out – well before it ran. Close to 500 harvesting contractors, harvest planners, forestry managers and equipment and technology suppliers from around the globe attended.

This year, HarvestTECH 2020 will be focussing on log scaling, log segregation and loading, wood transport, logistics and data integration through the wood supply chain. It will be running on 16-17 September in Melbourne, Australia and then again for the New Zealand industry on 22-23 September in Rotorua. If you are interested in presenting or saving a space this year, we are keen to hear from you. Further details can be found in this month’s lead story.

In this month’s issue, we’ve highlighted two local national campaigns. The Australian trucking industry is launching a new program to showcase the diversity within the sector, promote a positive perception of the industry and encourage new recruits. And in New Zealand, TreeSafe has been pushing the need for forestry workers to become more involved in health and safety decision-making. We’ve provided links to a number of interesting videos providing practical, on the job advice.

We also have stories on Tigercat’s new harvesting heads, a new app for hydraulic repair and maintenance, Timbeter’s timber measuring app’s international expansion and a new partnership to improve global research on logging automation.

Check out all the articles below and enjoy this month’s issue.
