New grinder from Williams & White
Williams & White Machine Inc has introduced a new circular saw CNC top and face grinder. The fully enclosed Accu-Sharp TFX-C is a two-axis CNC top and face grinder that grinds any tooth shape and pattern in a single pass. The intuitive on-screen computer interface allows a sawfiler to program up to 99 saw geometries and tooth profiles quickly and accurately. When a saw is pulled out of memory, set-up time is reduced to a simple wheel touch off. With automatic saw loading, the Williams & White grinder can handle saws 8 to 42. www.williamsandwhite.com #2065

Tree tracking system selected by German company
ObjectStore and Progress Software Corporation have announced that DABAC, a German software development company, has selected ObjectStore RFID Accelerator for its Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) pilot program. German forestry company Cambium-Forstbetriebe will use the technology to track trees from Germanys independent forests through the supply chain and to sawmills, improving inventory management and streamlining the financial reconciliation process. Cambium-Forstbetriebe can tag individual trees and store the RFID data collected from logs as they are transported to its sawmills. When deployed, a unique nail-shaped RFID tag will be inserted into each tree to be tracked as it moves through the supply chain, from the skidder that removes the tree from the forest right through to the sawmill. Using a handheld device, the information will be uploaded through GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) technology to a central location where ObjectStore RFID Accelerator takes over, aggregating, normalizing and propagating the data. Cambium-Forstbetriebe anticipates that ObjectStore RFID Accelerator will reduce the current inventory shrinkage by up to 70 per cent and reduce the payment reconciliation process by more than 50 percent, said Gerhard Friemel, owner of Cambium-Forstbetriebe. www.objectstore.net  www.progress.com  #2067

New mulcher from Tigercat
The new M726D mulcher from Tigercat complements the larger M760 available from the company. Both machines are designed to propel horizontal drum mulching attachments. The M726Ds Cummins QSC8.3 Tier II engine develops 245 hp at 1,800 rpm. The machine will mulch standing trees, brush and blowdown and is well suited to commercial land clearing and right-of-way applications. The M726D is smaller, lighter and more maneuverable than the M760. The tight turn radius allows the operator to carefully work around standing trees and other obstacles. And like the D-series feller bunchers, the M726D is available with either the two-speed transmission or wide-range infinitely variable transmission. www.tigercat.com #2068
