Binderholz Announces New High-Performance Sawing Line in Baruth

General News

Production at the Baruth location has a new showpiece: The high-performance sawing line combines everything that state-of-the-art sawing technology has to offer. It is highly flexible. It is able to cut logs from 2.50 m to 5 m in length and 110 mm to 550 mm in diameter. Technical refinements, such as a cross-cut saw and laser-assisted optical log measurement with automatic cutting pattern adjustment, ensure added value and careful handling of the raw material wood.

Following a short and intensive planning phase, the first construction measures were carried out at the end of 2020 to prepare the existing, upstream and downstream systems and the hall for the installation of the new sawing line. The first machines arrived in the summer of 2021 and were set up within a very short time. At the same time, a self-sufficient residual wood disposal system was installed for the new line. In December 2021, the first log was processed on the new line.

After a two-month commissioning and optimisation period, the sawing line was handed over to Production in March. It replaces an old line from 1994. Furthermore, we modernised the entire technical infrastructure in the course of installation. A new electrical supply line installed by e_dis supplies the new line with sufficient power.

This latest major investment of around 38 million Euros makes the binderholz location in Baruth one of the top 5 sawmill sites in Europe.
