The first thing that struck me was the smell – it was beautiful!
We were in a Danish sawmill to record a video showing the importance of factory automation. The necessity for high-speed network connectivity as each log passes through the mill at lightening speeds.
And all I could think was… ‘this place smells amazing’!
It was then that I stood back and stared in awe at these massive machines. I’d never stepped foot in a saw mill before and the sheer scale and grace of each machine taking its turn in the production line to transform the rough stock timber into perfectly finished lumber, was impressive.
I knew the importance of the automation technology that helps drive and control modern manufacturing. But this was the first time I’d seen up close and personal the synchronicity and productivity.
And now, well, I’m hooked. Engineering at its finest!
