Whether for a terrace, privacy fence or a raised bed, hardly any garden can do without wood. The demands associated with the production of garden timber are as varied as the raw material itself. Sawmills which, in addition to standard timber products, also include a special garden timber range in their portfolio, need a plant configuration that can combine classic machining steps flexibly with special refining processes.
Kallfass provides turnkey mechanisation concepts for further processing of timber, integrating profile milling for chamfering fence battens, planing machines for rippling of decking, incisor systems for preparing material for impregnation and chop saws for fence post pointing.
The following practical example of the installation of a fence production line in a confined space involves the raw material travelling from the vacuum destacker to a multiple cross-cut saw to create the required lengths. It is then conveyed on to the post pointing plant for sharpening of fence poles and subsequently passes through a profile miller for chamfering or milling of a radius on the board head. The squared timbers are now separated, planed and bundled, followed by a stacking and strapping system. This is only one installation example of many. Quality assessment systems, equipment for labelling and marking and incisor systems can be included in the configuration if desired.
Processing from sawn to garden timber often involves a lot of time and personnel. A well-conceived, automated production concept reduces manual tasks to a minimum and multiplies the production output.
