Solutions for processing of small diameter trees and big rods

Who may need such solutions? 

 

  • Primary and secondary wood using industries in areas where big diameter trees are not available;
  • Businesses intending to decrease waste amount and increase lumber recovery percentage;
  • Companies specializing in posts & poles manufacturing;
  • Producers of log cabins, garden sheds, gazebos, play grounds;
  • Businesses relative to forest “commercial thinning”;

 

 

What are benefits of the solution?

  • High productivity
  • Small diameter trees, tree tops and big rods can be milled into lumber, posts or poles;
  • Semiautomatic production process;
  • 2 operators (1st  for log in-feed, 2nd for out-feed);
  • Possibility to produce different lumber & timber;
  • Reliable and robust;
  • Easy replaceable tools;
  • Customizable and adjustable tooling;

 

What does the solution include?

 

 

 

  • Primary part of the solution is LTPS-125E or RLM-160S (RLM-100) machine;
  • Surrounding roll tables, log decks;
  • Generator (if there is no 3 phase hydro available);
  • Arunda tenoner can be useful for those who intends to use milled timber for building purposes;
  • Log carrying equipment such as forklifts, etc.

 

What is difference between LTPS-125E and RLM-160S?

 

  • RLM-160S has rotary (ring) type milling head. This allows manufacturing of poles with round profile.
  • Additionally RLM-160S has spindles with cutters for forming of different profiles on top and bottom sides of output products. (RLM-160S also has ability to “ripsaw”). 
  • Basic configuration of LTPS-124 allows manufacturing of lumber or small timber only, although the machine has 4 spindles (similar to 2 sided planner) which can accommodate special tooling for milling of different profiles on top and bottom sides of the output products.
