Primary Log Breakdown
A bottom chipping head module has two applications:
It can be combined with a two head canter to produce three sided cants. Logs are fed by a special sharp chain that can position a log vertically to produce the “best opening face”. Twin circular or band saws can be coupled to the canters. This provides a compact primary breakdown. It can also be used as the first chipping module of a four head curve sawing chipping canter with normally a vertical positioning belt feed.
