Wood-Mizer introduces the WB2000 high performance industrial sawmill that has been engineered specifically to meet the needs of high-production timber processing markets in North and South America.
Successfully installed and operating in six continents since its initial debut, the WB2000 expands the versatility and affordability of a high performance industrial sawmill in addition to providing world-class service and support from Wood-Mizer’s leading distribution network.
The WB2000 is capable of sawing with 2-inch or 3-inch wide band blades. It combines the increased yield of thin kerf blade technology with the durability and reliability that high production operations demand. In addition, WB2000 sawmill blades can be sharpened with fast, accurate, and affordable CBN grinding wheel technology rather than relying on the expertise and costly resources of a professional saw doctor.
The WB2000 features a powerful 50 hp electric motor, heavy-duty construction, low maintenance, live feed 2-camera video system, and precision setworks for sawing large diameter softwood, hardwood, and tropical logs. The WB2000 can be used as a standalone sawmill to fully process logs or in addition to an existing system to process irregular logs or produce custom orders.
Electronic setworks and an elevated operator control station allow a single operator to manage all sawing and hydraulic log handling functions while maintaining a clear view of production. The advanced setworks are displayed on a HMI touch-screen, which presents board and cant sizes along with current head height, feed position, and blade power. In addition, deluxe joysticks provide the operator with precise control of all sawing and log handling functions and feature proportional hydraulic speed control.
Hydraulic log handling functions include a dual-post log clamp, vertical side supports, bi-directional chain log turner, and power rollers for positioning the log and removing cants.
“Wood-Mizer is committed to providing the best sawmill equipment for high production operations throughout the world,” said Luke Murray, Wood-Mizer TITAN product manager. “The WB2000 gives industrial sawmill businesses a robust, affordable, and proven sawmill with the added benefits of increased yield, production, and versatility.”
The Wood-Mizer WB2000 high-performance industrial sawmill is now available worldwide.
