Visitors to Wood-Mizer’s stand (FG K44) at LIGNA 2017 will be presented with new high volume sawmilling equipment alongside the company’s well-known professional sawmill models.
The company has made great strides forward with expanding its product technology into new product ranges, and Wood-Mizer TITAN represents a giant leap forward for the company into high volume timber processing. The ruggedly constructed equipment is designed for maximum endurance and consistent high volume output. TITAN lines, currently in operation around the globe, are capable of producing up to 150+ cubic metres of round sawn timber per shift.

The new Wood-Mizer TITAN line of high volume sawmilling equipment will be represented at LIGNA 2017 by several individual units – the WB2000 wideband sawmill, a wideband Twin Vertical Saw, and a high capacity TITAN Multirip and the TITAN Edger. Wood-Mizer TITAN machines are blue, to differentiate the new high output, wideband line from Wood-Mizer’s narrowband industrial sawmills and the professional and mobile sawmills.
The WB2000 has seen an increase in inquiries and orders from around the globe, and was successfully installed on six continents in 2016 alone.
A new addition to the TITAN product range is Wood-Mizer’s WB2000 wideband sawmill, which was debuted at LIGNA 2015. Previously shown in green and grey, the WB2000 in 2017 has been added to the TITAN product range and will debut in TITAN blue with a new head shape, and a new enclosed operator cabin. The WB2000 has seen an increase in inquiries and orders from around the globe, and was successfully installed on six continents in 2016 alone. The WB2000 is addressing customer requirements for ease-of-use, affordability, durability, and a wideband capacity of 75 – 100 mm.
The LX series of sawmills will demonstrate features and construction (such as the new xFRAME) that Wood-Mizer has never offered before.
But the blue equipment will not be the only new sawmill line to be launched at LIGNA. Wood-Mizer has been actively developing a new line of LX sawmills, which present alternative features and capacity to the LT line of sawmills. Newly designed from the ground up, the LX sawmills were built according to feedback received especially from emerging sawmill markets, and also from Russia, and the USA. The LX series of sawmills will demonstrate features and construction (such as the new xFRAME) that Wood-Mizer has never offered before. The LX100 sawmill was released in 2016, and a new LX sawmill will be unveiled for the first time in Europe at LIGNA 2017.
Wood-Mizer TOOLS – a comprehensive range of circular saw blades, frame saw blades, planer knives, wideband blades and more.
Wood-Mizer TOOLS – a comprehensive range of circular saw blades, frame saw blades, planer knives, wideband blades and more – was debuted at LIGNA 2015, and will be presented in an expanded format at LIGNA 2017. Sales for TOOLS products tripled in 2016, and Wood-Mizer expects that trend to continue as more and more of their extensive worldwide network of representatives actively supply these high quality blades in their respective markets.
Other equipment at LIGNA 2017 will be the HR700 high capacity modular resaw...
Other equipment at LIGNA 2017 will be the HR700 high capacity modular resaw (capable of sawing 400 mm square cants) with a never before seen Merry-Go-Round cant return system, several sawmills from the well-known LT range, blade maintenance equipment for both wide and narrow bandsaws, and Wood-Mizer’s comprehensive offering of narrowband sawmill blades.
The new Vortex sawdust removal blade profile which leaves practically zero sawdust on the board surface.
New advances in narrowband blade technology will be shown as well, particularly the new Vortex sawdust removal blade profile. This revolutionary profile results in practically zero sawdust left on the board surface. This is highly valuable for pallet producers, who often have to use a second process to remove sawdust from boards before the kiln drying process. The Vortex blade was developed in the USA, and has been very well received by the market there, and initial tests in Europe, Africa and Asia have demonstrated significant interest from customers for this new blade profile.
LIGNA 2017 will mark the beginning of a new era for Wood-Mizer as the company expands both its product ranges and global footprint. Visit the Wood-Mizer stand and witness the future of sawmilling!
