2 THE ULTRATECH UNIVERSAL ARBOR SYSTEM Industry Recognized Bench Mark The UltraTech System performs at a higher level by saving us time, increasing profits and maximizing our return on investment.This is the technology our industry has been waiting for... Mike Pastorek, Interfor Head Saw Filer

3 Drastic Reduction In Saw Change Down-Time Source: Riverside Forest Products Eleven weeks to date and we have seen a 25% reduction in deviation and a 60% reduction in saw change downtime Bruce Luxmore, Mill Manager

4 Yearly Totals Are Even More Astounding Source: Riverside Forest Products

5 Agenda 1.Who - The History 2.Why – Increased Lumber Yield 3.What - Technical Innovations 4.Where - Western Canada & Beyond 5.How - Maximizing Return on Investment (ROI)

6 Who… The History Specialized Engineering Expertise VanGear and the Involute Arbor System in the Forest Products Industry

7 The History - VanGear and the Involute Arbor System Specialized Engineering Expertise The Involute Arbor System was introduced in 1994 Vast improvements over the Retec System due to VanGears extensive engineering and machining experience First new system to be introduced to the market, and the only one still in use today (over 85% of the mills in Canada and 65% of the mills in the USA)

8 The History - VanGear UltraTech Universal Saw Arbor System Specialized Engineering Expertise UltraTech released in 2000 Complete system with components precisely engineered to work together Consists of specially designed Mandrel Arbor Sleeves Saw Blades Saw Centering Device

9 More Precise Engineering Means Less Deviation, and Higher Lumber Yield Source: Riverside Forest Products

10 The History - VanGear and Involute Arbor System Specialized Engineering Expertise UltraTech can save Hundreds of Thousands of dollars each year in maintenance costs by reducing downtime. Vancouver Gear Works UltraTech Universal Arbor stands out as a superior system… This new system is proven to be a huge success and is increasing profits in the incredibly competitive Canadian sawmill industry Dennis Reid, Chief Instructor, Saw Trades – BCIT

11 Why… Savings & Profits Revolutionary Performance VanGears Core Strength… Your Maximum Return On Investment

12 Savings, Profits and ROI Revolutionary Performance Mills are faced with many problems: Slow, costly saw and arbor change-out times Easily damaged, quick-wearing saws and arbors High saw deviation resulting in excessive product waste UltraTech is the solution to these problems

13 Scheduled Sleeve Replacing / Repositioning Time is Drastically Reduced Source: Interfor / Hammond Cedar With the old solid arbor system it took two men four hours to position the arbor… With the UltraTech it now takes one man one hour to relocate the sleeves. Mike Pastorek, Head Saw Filer

14 This Means A Massive Reduction In Costs In Unexpected Mill Downtime Source: Interfor / Hammond Cedar

15 What… Technical Innovations Unparalleled Quality Expertise that elevates UltraTech beyond its competitors

16 Technical Innovations – Beyond the Competition Unparalleled Quality VanGear precisely engineers and machines all of the components of the UltraTech system including: Mandrel Arbor Sleeves Saw Eyes Saw Centering Device

17 Technical Innovations – Beyond the Competition Unparalleled Quality This allows for: Smoother operation / less vibration Longer product life Shorter maintenance times Lower product replacement Increased lumber yield Components are readily available

18 Longer Life, More Savings Source: Riverside Forest Products We are also anticipating a reduction of our annual saw usage by 30% as the sawing performance has increased because of the spoking action generated by the UltraTech arbor design. Ray Jackson, Head Saw Filer

19 Technical Innovations – Beyond the Competition Unparalleled Quality How does VanGear and the UltraTech STACK UP With many of our customers ISO certified we have developed our own in-house QA/QC program that meets their requirements To assure quality products we utilize a state of the art CNC Coordinate Measuring Machine, with Gear Measuring Capabilities We adhere to a continuous improvement program that exceeds our customers highest standards

20 Technical Innovations – Beyond the Competition Unparalleled Design Arbor sleeves are divided into sections If one area of the arbor sleeve is worn down the sleeve can be repositioned to establish a new saw running area When a sleeve has worn down only a small 5 section needs to be replaced Reduced sleeve consumption means lower replacement costs

21 Technical Innovations – Beyond the Competition Unparalleled Quality Our innovative UltraTech System is a high quality product engineered to optimize both yield and performance Keyed sleeves are unbalanced and have a weak point causing them to distort out of round UltraTech splined sleeves are naturally balanced, stronger and maintain true roundness

22 Technical Innovations – Beyond the Competition Unparalleled Quality Our UltraTech sleeves are made from high quality raw materials and are induction hardened to the maximum possible tooth depth, dramatically increasing sleeve durability and life

23 Where… Western Canada and Beyond Global Reach The Worldwide UltraTech Network

24 Where – The Worldwide UltraTech Network Global Reach Since 1952 Vancouver Gear Works Ltd. has been making a name for itself around the world Our name is synonymous with Consistently providing on-time service Superior products which are the sum of all parts Industry-leading technical support that is second to none

25 Where – The Worldwide UltraTech Network Global Reach The VanGear team is recognized as industry professionals and leaders in providing specialized machining services and real-time operating solutions Canada United States European Union Pacific Rim

26 How… Conclusion Maximizing Return On Investment Take your operation to the next level

27 Conclusion – The Next Level Return On Investment The UltraTech system will maximize ROI Increase efficiency Increase lumber yield Increase component life Minimize deviation Minimize replacing and repositioning time / mill downtime Minimize material waste

28 Conclusion – The Next Level Return On Your Investment The success of the UltraTech Universal Arbor is proven in the form of higher fiber recovery, longer mandrel and sleeve life, fewer unscheduled saw changes… Dennis Reid Chief Instructor, Saw Trades – BCIT FYI – I was a skeptic on this project but it has certainly paid off for us. Eleven weeks to date and we have seen 25% reduction in deviation and 60% in saw change downtime Bruce Luxmore Mill Manager, Riverside Forest Products

29 Conclusion – The Next Level Return On Investment The UltraTech Arbor in conjunction with Simonds Saws will increase production and decrease deviation by optimizing both yield and performance Let us partner with you to provide the right tool for today's high-tech sawmills
