Högland relies on WEIMA shredder to reduce cut wood waste

Högland Såg & Hyvleri – the leading manufacturer of high quality saw timber and planed products in Örnsköldsvik, in the northeast of Sweden has recently utilised S7.15 single-shaft shredder from WEIMA. During the production, large quantities of residual wood are produced everyday but this can be reduced to chips by a WEIMA single-shaft shredder.

These particular shredders are then resold as fuel for power plants.

Högland Såg & Hyvleri has always been careful when it comes to environment. The company is certified: It complies with quality requirements and standards in all areas, from management systems to production and sales. So, it’s natural that the sawmill would want to make effective use of its wood waste.

WEIMA’s S7.15 single-shaft shredder is much helpful to offer the greatest solution. The shredder comes with 110 kW gear drive to reduce the cut wood waste into chips. The wood chips are then sold to power plants as fuel. The shredder is filled via a conveyor belt that is directly connected to the sawing machine in production. Optionally, the sawn wood residues can also be loaded directly into the hopper of the shredder by means of a front loader. The chips are then transported to a bunker via another conveyor. Loading as well as removal takes place once or twice a day with the help of a wheel loader directly onto a truck.

“The rotor knives were even recently changed for the first time since they were installed about 2,500-2,800 operating hours ago. This has shown us once again how right it was to choose a WEIMA machine.” – Stefan Arnqvist, Technical Manager at Högland Såg & Hyvleri.

The S7 series from WEIMA is specially designed for extreme tasks. Therefore, this is one of the prime reasons to choose this particular series specially for Högland.
