AWMV Releases New Small Log Processing System

AWMV Releases New Small Log Processing System

            AWMV’s new small log processing (SLP) sawmill systems were introduced in the 2010 Richmond EXPO. AWMV says that its new small log processing lines offer unprecedented flexibility and configuration possibilities to meet individual users’ requirements and needs. All SLP components are designed to use as many common parts as possible. Many of the components are modular, allowing the maximum flexibility for the future.

            AWMV offers a number of possible layouts of its SLP. It incorporates a mixture of log decks, single and twin vertical resaws, horizontal resaws, multi-head resaws, edgers, and chippers to match specific needs. These new small log sawmills are designed to process small logs, including typical pulp and scragg logs into pallet stock.

            AWMV indicates that its technology does not require massive construction or cast iron components. Narrow band technology allows it to save on manufacturing costs that are not directly related to the cutting process. While a level concrete floor is preferable, the small log processing mills can be installed on almost any firm surface.

            These new systems are designed to be modular and flexible. You can run off a generator, therefore operating away from conventional power sources. Sawmill owners can change their layouts quickly and easily to adapt to different product requirements and change geographical mill locations.

            A variety of log decks and materials handling equipment is available to fix specific needs.
