Challenge
Customer required a process to separate the low grade lumber “fines” and smaller pieces of wood chips from the more desirable large OSB (Oriented Strand Board) strands to increase the quality and strength of their finished product.

Approach
GK was contacted to create a new process solution when traditional screening solutions did not allow the customer to meet their production specification.

Solution
General Kinematics applied their extensive application knowledge with their proven FINGER-SCREEN™ vibratory screener technology to create a machine that exceeded customer performance requirements.

Results
GK’s Engineered Solutions Group designed a technology which created new specifications for product classification… based upon capturing more good product, while increasing the integrity of the finished product.
