The new automated SLP2 line made an excellent showing at Ligna



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.

The addition of a multirip edger also increases productivity.

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.
