At LIGNA 2019, Wood-Mizer strengthened its reputation as a leading manufacturer offering machines for both small workshops and industrial enterprises for primary and secondary wood processing. Wood-Mizer equipment gives every company the opportunity to benefit in difficult competitive markets, to find new niche markets while saving valuable wood and energy.
For the first time at LIGNA a wide range of planer/moulders were presented. The machines are dedicated for small-to-medium workshops and allow sawmillers to take a further step by adding a moulding operation for converting boards into final wood products.
The Wood-Mizer planer / moulder range demonstrated at LIGNA included the MP160 Planer and Thicknesser that both planes and surfaces boards; the MP200 Planer/Moulder capable to plane and mould timber on two sides in a single pass; the versatile MP260 and MP360 Four-Sided Planer/Moulders, the MF130 Multifunctional Vertical Spindle Moulder with a tilting range of 270 degrees and the MS300 precision table saw with a large rip capacity and 45-degree blade tilt angle.
Wood-Mizer also presented the new 90 cm log diameter capacity LT15WIDE sawmill and the entry-level LX50 for sawmillers who want to start business with minimal investment in the equipment.
Several years ago, Wood-Mizer introduced the new TITAN line by producing industrial high-volume sawmilling equipment. During this year’s LIGNA fair, the TITAN line was presented by three units: the WB2000 wideband sawmill, which features heavy-duty construction, low maintenance requirements, and efficient operation; the EA3000 optimising board edger, whose sensors allow the edger to scan boards and make the most out of slabs of varying widths; and a high capacity EG800 multirip edger, a robust machine that edges material up to 100 mm thick.
LIGNA visitors were also presented with Wood-Mizer’s line of wood cutting blades and knives which includes multirip, ripsaw, crosscut and frame saw blades, planing and moulding knives as well as narrowband and wideband bandsaw blades.
