New 10 Ft. Lathe Line At TPC-Yreka Veneer Plant: Better Quality, More Wide Sheets

Article by Dan Shell, Senior Editor, Panel World

YREKA, California – Watching the new Meinan 10 ft. lathe system in action at Timber Products Co.’s (TPC’s) northern California veneer plant, TPC California Operations Manager Chris Chase says he believes it’s “the most versatile lathe in America.” With the ability to peel 8, 9 and 10 ft. blocks, and handle logs from 6 in. to 40 in. while peeling a variety of species, the new lathe is making a strong case for its versatility since it went into full production early this year after starting up in late December 2020.

The primary drivers for the new lathe project were to increase the quality of veneer produced in terms of smoothness and thickness consistency and also to better align veneer production with demand from TPC’s two southern Oregon plywood plants.
