Increased quality in the sawmill line with lasers

Sawmill
applications

In a sawmill, it is important that all supports and holders for logs and planks are centred, straight and parallel relative to reducers and saw sections. There are high demands on the processing procedure because the product is heavy, wearing and varies in shape and density.

It is advantageous to align the circular saw blades and band saw pulleys in parallel and vertically within the correct tolerances to optimise the machine.

Being able to measure and align supports, holders, counterholds and circular saw blades in the sawmill quickly, easily and flexibly is important for maintaining the quality of the sawn product and thereby assuring yields.

Advantages of measuring and adjusting the sawmill:

  • Continued high pace of production
  • Fewer unplanned stops
  • Better product quality
  • Extended service life for band saw and circular saw blades
  • Extended service life for bearings and other machine elements
  • Less vibrations
  • Increased machine checks
  • Safer working environment

Why choose laser?

The laser gives us an absolutely straight ”ruler” to place on the centre of the sawline, which we then measure from, for example, counterholds to the laser beam from both sides. We can then centre exactly to our requirements.

The laser beam replaces the traditional cord/wire, that was tensioned in the centre, and enables us to move around freely in the machine, screwing and adjusting, while following the result of the adjustment in real time. It is a quick and efficient way of working. In addition, it is easy to document the results before and after alignment.

Easy-Laser E980 is a laser system specially developed for measuring sawmills.
