This Cummins Power Generation WPSC330S Silent Generator will supply power to a saw mill where logs are cut into lumber. Once trees have been selected for the harvest they are felled and bucked into length, the branches are cut away from the trunk and shipped to the sawmill where the first process is called barking, this is where the bark is removed from the wood, next a sawyer uses a head saw to break the log into cants and flitches which are unfinished planks, then depending on the species of the log, the cants will be further broken down by a resaw into many flitches, next in the process is edging which will take off and trim irregular edges leaving a four-sided lumber.
These days are massive and expensive facilities in which many of the processes are computerised meaning the supply of power to the machines is fundamental to the constant production of timber, any time where the machines are not operational represents a loss of income for the business.
