Wood-Mizer’s knowledge of customer needs in international markets has delivered a sawmill that is the best that both narrow- and wide-band technologies have to offer.
Wood-Mizer’s WB2000 features heavy-duty construction, low maintenance requirements, and efficient operation. Electronic setworks and a raised operator control station allow a single operator to manage all sawing and hydraulic log handling functions while maintaining a clear view of his work. The advanced PLC setworks are displayed on a 19cm HMI touch-screen which presents board and cant sizes along with current head height, feed position, and blade power.
The heavily constructed bed has a log capacity of up to 6 tonnes. The twin C-channel steel beams that make up the frame are massive – 400mm tall by 110mm wide. All hydraulic log handling functions - such as the log clamps, chain turners, and power rollers - are modular, and can be moved to different bunks as needed.
The WB2000 is equally used as a standalone sawmill to process all required materials, or as an addition to an existing business to process irregular logs or to produce custom orders that the existing equipment is not suited for.
Bi-directional Chain Turner
Equipped with a chain turner for quick log turning.
Clamps and stabilises the log during the cutting process and is also used to turn squared cants.
Used for positioning the log in the optimal place on the bed, and also for removing cants from the sawmill.
Vertical Side Support
Keeps the log on the bed during loading and turning. Ensures the timber remains stable during the cutting process.
Hold Down Clamp
Clamps the cant from two sides during cutting. Excellent for cants with internal stress.
Main Electric Motor
30 kW electric motor is standard.
37 kW electric motor - optional.
Hydraulic Blade Tension
Maintains the pressure in the blade tensioning system.
Cameras & Screen
Ensures complete oversight of the cutting process. The standard version is equipped with 2 cameras, and up to four cameras can be mounted.
A laser beam indicates where the blade will cut through the log. Available as an option.
Removes dirt and rocks from the blade path, keeping the blades in better condition between sharpening, and extending overall blade life. Available as an option.
Board Removal System
Includes the board removal fingers, chains and shock absorbing roller.
Located at the rear of the bed. Activates automatically when the head returns, ensuring efficient material flow. Tilt angle can be adjusted.
Air-conditioned operator’s cab
Maintains comfortable temperature for the operator and protects electronic elements from negative weather conditions.
The bed can be extended by 2 m or 4 m (available only for M-size bed).
Operator Station (EC version)
The operator station is equipped with an integrated control panel with all head and hydraulic functions. The optional camera system * makes it possible for the operator to observe the entire cutting process.
* (The basic 2 camera system is included as standard for all sales which are required to meet certification).
Operator Station (PRO version)
The raised platform with an operator’s chair and two joystick controls is equipped with a modern touch-screen control panel, shown here with the optional camera display system. *
Thanks to these features the operator can efficiently manage all sawing and hydraulic log handling functions. An air-conditioned operator’s cabin is available as an option.
