Strong performance at IndiaWood
Sales included the first ever Small Log Processing line in India, which will be installed later this year for a customer in the north of the country, in addition to orders for sawmills from the LT range.
"The stand was always busy and we drew additional crowds every time one of the machines started up and began cutting logs", said James Wong, Wood-Mizer's Regional Manager for Asia. "Our stand was well positioned in the main outside area, and conveniently close to the large stand of our Indian agent HBR Consultants in the adjacent hall.
"We also had a bandsaw blade sharpening machine and setting machine at the show, which generated useful interest as we were talking to visitors about our new range of blades including the RazorTip Stellite-tipped blade that is especially suitable for cutting hard tropical wood".
The exhibition was an excellent opportunity to present the benefits of Wood-Mizer's thin-kerf technology, high yield from the log, productivity and low running costs to visitors from India and other Asian countries. In support of the event, Radoslaw Adamkiewicz (sales manager) and Slawomir Sliwka (customer services) from Wood-Mizer's European headquarters in Poland were on the stand to provide technical advice and assist with demonstrations of the LT70 and LT20B sawmills and Single Head Resaw (SHR).
All three machines were run regularly throughout each day, producing accurately sawn boards of various thickness from tropical hardwood logs. The LT70 was equipped with the optional material handling system for loading logs onto the bed and positioning them for the optimum cut, and the benefits of the LT20B with modular bed extensions was shown with two logs placed end to end and cut with a single pass of the head. Square sided cants from the LT machines were used to demonstrate the capability of the affordable SHR for productive cutting of thin boards.
