Log Peelers of CLP series

Automated Log Peeling Machine CLP-1 emulates drawknife peeling process of hand crafted log home industry


General info


CLP-machines are intended for log home builders, utility pole makers, log traders. The machines debark/peel dry or "green" logs, emulating draw-knife peeling process performed by man. The machines use the technology which have been proposed by Mr. Robert W. Chambers (USA) who is a log home builder, renowned writer and innovator.

In 2015 Woodlandia made scaled down propotype of the peeling/cutting units of the machine for research, experimental and testing purposes. Research & development phase proved the concept and let Woodlandia gain vakuable knowledge and experiene.

The video of prototype peeling unit and model of the full-scale CLP-1machine is available on our  channel (click on  icon to review it). The results of the CLP peeling have been presented on 2015 ILBA (International Log Builders Association) conference in Monte Bello, Quebeq, Canada. Woodlandia is ready to accept orders for the full scale machine.

Productivity / Output 

Output depends on:

  • Log species (Pine, Cedar, Spruce, Lurch, Douglas Fir)
  • Log crookedness (it is faster to peel straighter logs)
  • Number of knots and branch remainings
  • Skills of operator 
  • Organizational proficiency of the production process 

In average one can expect following "throughput":

  • "Difficult" or very knotty,  logs: 24ft/h (7m/h)
  • Average logs: 40ft/h (12m/h)
  • Nice straight logs: over 50ft/h (15m/h)
