The new automated SLP2 line made an excellent showing at Ligna
As announced before the show, Wood-Mizer’s highlight exhibit at Ligna 2013 was the new small log processing system that generated great interest from visitors who attended from around the world.
The entire system of conveyors, chains, and three sawmills which makes up the SLP2 line are conveniently operated from a central remote console at the front of the line.
The new layout allows the entire system to be operated by only two or three workers. The first worker operates the controls and rolls small logs from the log ramp onto a spiky chain conveyor.
The first sawmill, a twin vertical saw, converts the small logs into two-sided cants and the slabs are removed on a chain conveyor.
Next, a horizontal saw removes a third side from the cant.
The last sawmill in the line is the HR500 multihead resaw. At Ligna it was demonstrated with only two heads, but it can have up to six for maximum productivity.
Below demonstrates the layout of SLP2 line that was presented at Ligna 2013.
The addition of a multirip edger also increases productivity.
Wood-Mizer presented several sharpeners and setters for band blades.
Wood-Mizer demonstrated its orange line of band sawmills, too.
The LT15 sawmill was equipped with the additional MP100 moulder / planer.
This is the smallest Wood-Mizer sawmill, the LT10, which can be delivered to customers on a pallet and then assembled.
The LT20 sawmill is a good solution for medium-sized sawing businesses.
The mobile LT70 with a powerful diesel engine always gathered good crowds of onlookers.
