OneFortyOne saw-shop upgrade

2 March 2022

OneFortyOne is committed to ensuring they remain one of the most progressive and efficient mills in Australasia. By investing in new technology, they are continuing towards their objective of valuing every strand of wood fibre that they process. OneFortyOne has invested $40 million since purchasing the Jubilee Sawmill in 2018.

As part of this investment, OneFortyOne has chosen ISELI equipment for its Saw-Shop upgrade. ISELI is regarded by Industry as being the most innovative company in the world when it comes to Saw-Shop technology. Thode Knife & Saw proudly represent ISELI in Australasia and Canada wide.

Barry Kuhl Saw-Shop Manager (second from the left) and his team are upgrading their Saw-Shop. The latest delivery consists of an ISELI BNF100 CNC Bandsaw Side Grinder and ISELI SAA Automatic Stellite Tipper which followed on from a new ISELI RZ1 Auto Levelling & Benching station in 2020. Thode and ISELI are proud to be involved with this project and look forward to the upcoming installation of two new ISELI BNP 200 CNC bandsaw sharpeners. Thank you to Barry and his team from Aaron Mc Rae of Thode for the hospitality during the commissioning process.
