SEC introduces POSILOCK fence
SEC has introduced the POSILOCK Positioning Fence, which provides two feet of infinite board positioning at a high lug rate. The board and shifting paddle are in contact over the entire roll length and an air-operated guide pulls each paddle into position. When the desired ending is achieved the guide releases, locking the paddle in the set position. There is no bounce back, no board coasting or damage to the ends of the boards. The POSILOCK Positioning Fence can be fully integrated into most existing trimmer lines. High lug rate capability eliminates the need for additional saws throughout the trimmer at one-foot increments. Once installed, virtually no maintenance is required and each paddle can be removed and replaced in seconds. Both the random width (up to150 LPM) and stud (up to 200 LPM) machines are offered with an 8 long ending roll. A shorter version is available utilizing a 4-0 long ending roll. www.sawmillequipment.ca  Reader Service Card 0067

Sellicks new S Series rough terrain forklift
Sellick Equipment has introduced its S series rough terrain forklift. The new design focuses on safety, visibility, ergonomics, and accessibility. The operator platform is rubber mounted to reduce noise and vibration levels, improving productivity and reducing fatigue. Visibility through the SEE-THRU roller mast has also been improved to increase safety. It has a capacity range of 6,000 to 12,000 lbs, and all models are equipped with the new Perkins 1100 Tier II emission diesel engine. Optional equipment includes four-wheel drive, enclosed cab, air conditioning, fork positioning and a wide selection of lift heights. www.sellickequipment.com  Reader Service Card 0068

Remsoft launches Allocation Optimizer software
Remsoft has launched the Allocation Optimizer, the first commercial software product that enables users to include destination, mill demands, transportation costs and the cost and value of products in strategic management plans. Allocation Optimizer means decisions about where, when and what to harvest (or to deliver silviculture or some other treatments) are linked directly to market and mill needs, helping organizations to increase efficiency and improve profitability. The result is truly optimal planning, and the benefit is potentially millions of dollars saved (or millions in additional revenue generated), the company says, because strategic management plans will produce the right forest products, in the right place and at the right time that they are required by mills. This problem of allocation of resource is something most forestry companies are faced with today. It is a supply chain management issue, but the fact that they are dealing with natural systems complicates the matter, says Ugo Feunekes, Remsoft vice president of research and the systems lead developer. The problem has always been how to deal with it efficiently and since they havent been able to do that, the allocation issue has been ignored. That no longer has to be the case. This product is really quite a breakthrough in that sense. www.remsoft.com  Reader Service Card 0069

Hydraulic fluid designed for wide temperature protection
Petro-Canada has launched Hydrex* Extreme, a unique premium-quality, high-performance hydraulic fluid designed for wide temperature protection for high and severe low temperatures in mobile equipment. It provides outstanding low temperature flow, allowing start-ups as low as 49 degrees C (-56 degrees F) and continues to protect equipment at operating temperatures as high as 64 degrees C (147 degrees F). It has also shown to have superior oxidation life. Comparisons using the RPVOT ASTM D2272 oxidation test demonstrated that Hydrex* Extreme lasts longer than leading competitive oils, says the company. Longer oil life extends time between oil changes, thereby reducing downtime costs. It also minimizes sludge build-up, contains no heavy metals, such as barium or zinc, to help minimize environmental effects including wastewater contamination. www.petro-canada.ca  Reader Service Card 0070

LBX Selects vShepherd GPS products for excavators
LBX Company, LLC, makers of Link-Belt earthmoving, forestry and material handling equipment, has chosen ATS Asset Tracking Services Inc (a Canadian company) to provide its vShepherd line of GPS products and services for its line of excavators. vShepherd merges Internet, cellular and global positioning system technologies to form a powerful system for asset protection, fleet management and theft recovery. LBX plans to implement vShepherd in select excavator models within its wholesale financing program. This will save Link-Belt distributors both time and money, as they will be able to accurately locate the position of Link-Belt equipment at any time, plan and schedule maintenance, and get hour meter readings of engine run-times. Distributors will also be able to utilize the FleetReach feature of vShepherd to view a weekly report showing the status of an entire Link-Belt fleet and highlight what machines need immediate service, creating efficiencies in planned maintenance. www.lbxco.com Reader Service Card 0071
