The modern dimensional lumber mill is a high precision lumber manufacturing plant, using computers and laser systems to precisely move & measure raw timbers through the milling process to arrive at standardized final board dimensions. Gates Corporation products keep the timbers moving along precisely and reliably. Click through to read how our Gates Poly Chain GT Carbon belt drive system replaced a #40 roller chain drive for a wood processing plant's log conveyor - after 7 months, our belt drive was still operating smoothly and had eliminated downtime with increased production. http://www.gates.com/catalogs-and-resources/resources/repository/case-studies/log-conveyor-case-study

Do you know why the 2x4 purchased at your local lumber yard only measures 1 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches? Lumber was traditionally described by the "nominal dimension" - which is larger than the dimension of the finished lumber. The nominal dimension represented the initial rough cut of 'green' wood - not dried and without finish planing of the surfaces. After the rough cut 2x4 dried and completed planing, the final lumber dimension would be inconsistent, requiring a skilled carpenter to adjust for individual board dimensions throughout a project. The modern sawmill is far more precise, controlling the size of initial rough cuts of green wood to precisely arrive at the modern standardized dimensions after drying & planing. The process is so accurate that the initial rough cut is now smaller than the traditional 2x4 nominal dimension. We still call them 2x4's because we have always called them 2x4's, even though they have actually never measured 2 inches x 4 inches in dimensions of the final boards.
