Secondary Breakdown

Six Axes Profiler

The six axes profiler eliminates edging of boards by profiling a two or four sided cant. Six axes are required as two profiler heads are each positioned vertically and together are positioned laterally (by the carriage). The Profiler is used both in primary log breakdown and in cant processing into lumber. It can be installed after a canter producing vertical two sided cants or before a cant chipping canter or multi-saw edger.
