Large-scale modernisation at Wood-Mizer’s European facility

Large-scale modernisation at Wood-Mizer’s European facility Optimised process flows in the manufacture of band sawmills and ancillary wood processing equipment, new equipment and customer service improvements have been the fruits of dramatic demand enjoyed by Wood-Mizer in Europe recently.

As a result the company expanded its European manufacturing operations with a new 2.400m2 workshop and increases in blades production lines to 14. Areas devoted to manufacture doubled and this was following by further investment in state-of-the-art plant.

A Trumpf Trulaser 3030 sheet metal laser cutter is set to become a key component in production. Programmed directly by the engineering department it cuts elements to different configurations from 1,5 to 20mm thicknesses.

A Japanese Mazac CNC turning centre with computerised machining is enhancing the quality of various elements and increasing output of the company’s smaller mills, like the LT10 and LT15 series.

Additionally, a new Italian CABE CNC slotting machine plus a CNC press brake from Vimercati have completed metal processing modernisation, allowing the return of hitherto subcontracted functions to the plant. This is improving quality, shortening deliveries and reducing process costs.

Latest acquisition is an Italian paint booth from Termomeccanica. Fitted with Wagner paint mixers and Swiss guns and with a washing machine, it is half a metre wider than previous booths –– so paints larger components.

Up to the end of last year investment in manufacturing modernisation was $4 million.

Large-scale modernisation at Wood-Mizer’s European facility during the last two years prepared it for economies, coping with present economic conditions and being prepared for an upturn.
