Recently Redwood Plastics completed a deal to send a modifed 4-grader SharkFin Board Turning System to a mill near Irkutsk, Russia. Irkutsk is one of the largest cities in Siberia and is known as a “hub” of administration and trade. The four grader system was designed to optimize quality of grading yet increase production and reduce the physical stress on valuable grading personnel. The deal was negotiated with an international engineering consultation firm based out of North Carolina that saw value in SharkFin’s inherant advantages for the isolated mill.
The SharkFin has important benefits to remote mills such as that near Irkutsk. Its design is extremely simple, which helps keep it reliable and it works by gravity – not complicated motors or other mechanical systems that could lead to a breakdown. The system has proven its worth in decades of use, reduced injuries and increased productivity. For more information on the SharkFin system click the tab above or here.
