S.C. Mill Installs Iggesund POWER Heads for Canter

      New South installed Iggesund Tools’ Progressive Outside Wing Edge Repositioning (POWER) heads for its end dog canter at its mill in Conway, S.C. The company improved quality and production and controlled operating costs under the Iggesund Tools Partner-Chip program. Additionally, New South decided to upgrade its chipper to the Iggesund Tools TurnKnife System with helical face technology.

      Gilman Building Products has begun using Iggesund Tools chipping heads on chip-n-saw canters and reman edgers at its six mills in Georgia and Florida. Each mill has experienced a reduction in green target and an increase in yield since the changeover.

      The Potlatch mill in Warren, Ark., is upgrading another mill chipper to the Iggesund Tools TurnKnife System with helical face technology. It expects to improve chip quality and control operating costs with this second installation.

The 42-inch diameter by 67-inch hammermill is equipped with heavy-duty 28-inch rotors; the hammermill components are laser cut for precise tolerances and added durability.
