Woodlandia notch maker NM-1 overview

General Information

Woodlandia log notcher NM-1Many log home designs come up with idea to connect walls in log home in angle different than 90 degrees. Woodlandia notch milling machine NM-1 is intended to cut notches of 45, 60, 90 and 135 degrees (other angles are also possible). NM-1 is relatively light machine (600lb or 300kg) and can be moved even to building site and work from portable generator. Such idea is used by those log home building companies who buy milled round logs at wholesale price and them mill notches at building site. 

 Working together with the LL-41, the NM-1 adds flexibility to designs for today's log builders. Beside that the notcher allows to speed up production process because time expensive notching operation can be reduced on Log Lathe and mov

ed to dedicated notch-maker.

Many businesses improve production process by using LL-41 (or RLM log rounding moulder) just to turn logs to necessary diameter and mill lengthwise groove (Swedish cope) only. And then processed log is moved to other machine (NM-1, NM-2 or NM-3) where notches are milled. Such configuration where 2 machines are used simultaneously can increase productivity of the business on 35% and even more. Such parallelism can increase productivity of the business on 35%. Dedicated notcher NM-1 adds flexibility to designs and is a nice helper for log home builders. Notch maker can significantly increase productivity of the business since there will be no expensive time spent for notching on LL-41.

Round notch can be milled during 2-5 minutes including log setup. Output depends on log species, diameter and hardness. For bigger log diameters or hardwood logs slower carriage speed must be chosen.
