Sawquip has developed equipment that when combined, can automate log and cant breakdown often in a single pass. Multi-function equipment can be used for primary and secondary breakdown as well as edging.
By combining two vertical and two horizontal chipping heads with a circular saw edger, logs can be processed into finished lumber in a single pass.
The unit is compact with its special designed infeed belt or “V” chain conveyors and transition and hold-down rolls between chipping head and saws.
This multi-function edger was developed by Sawquip to process both cants and boards into finished lumber products.View product details
