Norwood Sawmills, a leading global portable sawmill and forestry equipment manufacturer, is pleased to introduce a new Sawmill Calculator mobile app. The unique app, available for both Apple and Android phones and tablets, gives sawyers, wood-workers and log sellers and buyers instant estimates of the board content of logs according to three industry-accepted log rules. Bonus functions calculate the volume of sawn lumber and estimate the weight of logs.
“We are always developing new tools to help Norwood owners be even more successful,” says Norwood President, Ashlynne Dale. “The new Norwood Sawmills Calculator mobile app gives band sawmill owners, of all stripes, quick, professional and reliable data.”
The Norwood Sawmills Calculator performs three useful functions:
Log Scaling: Swipe sliders to input log dimensions and immediately get board-feet estimates, simultaneously, in all three industry-standard log rules: Doyle, Scribner and International 1/4″. Because the Calculator gives board content estimates according to all three log rules, at the same time on the same screen, users get complete information instantly.
Lumber Scale: Input board dimensions to instantly and accurately calculate the volume of that board. Swipe the “Board Quantity” slider to quickly calculate the board-feet of a stack of sawn lumber. Sawyers can quickly tally-up their production at the end of a custom-milling project or at the end each sawmilling day.
Log Weight Estimator: Estimate the log weight of most common tree species. Select the species, swipe sliders to input length and diameter of your logs and instantly see their estimated weight.
For those who prefer to work in metric, the app can also be set to function in cubic meters and kilograms.
The Norwood Sawmills Calculator mobile app is a must-have tool for all portable band sawmill owners. It is available for download now for only 99¢.
