High Torque capability maximizes operational time

Lumber and timber

Control Techniques has a control system to operate nearly every possible lumber application. With our soft starters and variable frequency drives, we can utilize our high torque capability coupled with the ability to start and stop quickly to maximize operation time by minimizing the wait for transition periods.

Even when maintenance is required on the equipment, we can stop that bandmill or chipper in a fraction of the time, allowing blade and tooth change-out in less of time. We can follow the log from debarking all the way through the kiln.

Variable frequency drives from Control Techniques can utilize our high torque capability coupled with the ability to start and stop quickly to maximize operation time by maximizing the wait for transition periods, even when maintenance is required on the equipment.
