Extendable horizontal resaw telescopes opportunities Wood-Mizer has revealed the impending launch of a modular horizontal resaw with from two to six cutting heads, to meet the needs of small sawing operators, farmers and estate owners who wish to further extend timber processing. The add-on or subtract resaw, which devolves from the company’s... more
Enhanced, sustainable small log processing by Wood-Mizer Evolution of the prototype small log processing system (SLP) unveiled at the Ligna timber & forestry fair in Hannover one year ago has evolved to the state-of-the-art set-up demonstrated at Xylexpo. Several components are upgraded to enhance this Wood-Mizer arrangement and 150 of them have been... more
Small Log Processing: A Quantum Leap in Pallet Wood Production Traditionally, making money from the conversion of small logs is tricky. It depends on a lot of factors. For a start it is a quite complicated, with many variables. On one hand its seems attractive since small logs –– say, 100-400mm in diameter and 900-400mm long –– are easy to get and inexpensive.... more
Debut for sustainable, small log processing set-up Small log processing, the principal demonstration, showed how small logs of often previously unviable species are converted to profitable lumber. It is achieved by a set-up comprising a twin vertical saw (TVS), a TVS log infeed system, a TVS slab cross-transfer conveyor and an edger for edging... more
