We provide the solution for your wood waste to be shredded directly at the source of the wood waste. Our wood chippers can work in line with the cutting table saving energy on transportation. Or the slabs can be transported away from the production hall and shredded elsewhere. With our wood chipping solutions, your production is always the turning point in the setup.

Usage of sawmill waste wood

Sawmill wood chips can be used in a wide variety of applications – such as heating in a furnace or as a substitute for bark mulch in flower beds, to cover floors at large events, to create an impact-absorbing surface for play areas or for further processing in the wood-based materials industry.

Slab timber from the sawmill industry

Slab timber is an industrial wood produced by log sorting companies and sawmills. It is a by-product created when logs or trunk wood is cut to into desired lengths. Slab timber is suitable to produce chip board, OSB or MDF boards and can also be reprocessed into firewood or briquettes. Wood chips have also proven their worth as bedding for stables as well as for heating purposes in the form of briquettes.
