Wood-Mizer’s knowledge of customer needs in international markets has delivered a sawmill that is the best that both narrow and wideband technologies have to offer.
Wood-Mizer’s WB2000 features heavy-duty construction, low maintenance requirements, and efficient operation. The WB2000 uses wideband 75 mm blades or 100 mm stellite-tipped blades. When using 75 mm blades (available with 22.22 mm and 28.50 mm tooth spacing) the sawmill is especially cost-efficient in terms of blade maintenance costs.
To ensure the best visibility of the cutting and log handling processes we offer an optional live-feed video system with two cameras as standard, expandable up to four cameras. *
The PRO version of the sawmill uses an automatic PLC setworks system.
The 12-inch touch-screen displays various parameters such as the dimensions of the material, current head height, feed position and main engine power. To adjust these parameters, the operator simply has to use the touch screen to enter new settings.
The EC version uses a 5.7-inch touch-screen with the latest version of the SW PLC3 Setworks system.
The modern, heavy-duty bed has a log capacity of up to 6 tonnes. The massive twin C-channel steel beams that make up the frame are 400 mm tall by 110 mm wide. All hydraulic log handling functions - such as the log clamps, chain turners, power rollers, side supports and hold-down clamps - are modular, and can be moved to different bunks as needed.
The WB2000 can be used used as a standalone sawmill to fully process a log, or in addition to an existing business to process irregular logs or to produce custom orders that the existing equipment is not suited for. Thanks to the various hydraulic packages and bed lengths, the sawmill is very versatile. It can saw large diameter softwood, hardwood and tropical logs from 2.4 meters up to 12 meters.
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.
Log Deck (LD2)
Logs can be staged on the Log Deck, and fed forward one at a time onto the sawmill. The loading arms ensure only one log is transferred at a time. The sawmill operator controls the Log
Deck from the Operator Station. The Log Deck is available in two lengths (3.6 m or 6 m long) and two widths (1.55 m and 3.3 m).
Incline Conveyor (CB3)
The conveyor belt removes timber from the sawmill. After the cut is finished, the Board Removal System offloads the board from the bed onto the Conveyor Belt, which then moves the timber to the next processing stage. Like the Log Deck, the Belt Conveyor is controlled from the Operator Station.
Transfer Table (TD2)
The Transfer Table efficiently sorts timber in different directions. Timber can be sent directly forward, or diverted to an edger. The Transfer Table can be set up for either right or left hand operation. Recommended for timber up to 6 m long.
