Wood-Mizer unveils series of segmented-bed band sawmills

Wood-Mizer unveils series of segmented-bed band sawmills Following a development project at Wood-Mizer’s Moscow branch to initiate a sawmill on segmented beds for commercial cutting, the new, ‘chunky’ LT20B sawmill was presented to visitors at Moscow’s timber trade fair in September 2008. Two years later this development has spawned a new ‘range’.

The original LT20B sawmill’s bed consists of segments of two metres each and cutting length increases with each segment addition. The bed is robust, large and positioned close to the floor to facilitate easy, manual log loading with cant hooks.

Although the LT20B sawmill was designed for the Russian market it has since become popular in Western Europe, especially in Germany. Wood-Mizer analysed the situation and decided to consolidate its success by developing a series of band sawmills on segmented beds. Thus: the LT20B, LT40B and LT70B!

All these new sawmills, using proven Wood-Mizer technology, were presented at Lesdrevmash in September creating a lot of interest from potential clients..

The ‘B’ sawmills are distinguished by each’s individual sawing head. More advanced heads bring more options to head design like
maximum log diameter, cut width, engine power increase. All the sawmills have ‘setworks’, electric blade guide arms and electric head feed.

The segmented bed is a technical solution that reduces the initial cost of setting up a productive sawmill, especially for new start-ups. It is easy to add components as the business grows.
