Is it revolutionary? You be the judge – the new WSM Pin Chipper™ is a high capacity fiber preparation machine that converts lower value mill residuals (shavings and hogged wood) and alternate fiber supply sources into a high percentage of “pin chips” with long fiber length for use in the Pulp & Paper Industry.

The WSM Pin Chipper™ is available in rotor diameters of 42”, 48”, and 60” and rotor lengths from 36” to 88” long and typically operates with 200 – 800 HP. Modular and adjustable tooling includes either rigid or swing hammers with replaceable tips, combined with modular sizing screens allow adjustment to product sizing. Field proven performance at rates up to 75 tph, and when combined with a WSM pre-screen the processing rate is confirmed at rates of 150+ tph. System integration into your woodyard is no problem – WSM offers complete infeed and outfeed options to help you supplement your chip supply with lower cost fiber from the WSM Pin Chipper™.

Need to see it to believe it? WSM’s test lab can process your material to demonstrate how the WSM Pin Chipper™ performs on your specific low cost fiber materials.

This machine isn’t for everyone – but where it’s a “fit” – it’s a game changer. If you are looking for a way to reduce incoming fiber cost and can handle a percentage of “pins” and “fines” in your pulping process, then the WSM Pin Chipper™ can deliver substantial value by expanding your sources of wood fiber, reducing hauling costs, and substituting high cost fiber with low cost fiber.

Indianapolis, IN – Wood-Mizer LLC, the world’s leading portable sawmill manufacturer, introduces the unique and aggressive Turbo 7 blade profile in the high-performance Wood-Mizer Bi-Metal blade product line.

With increased air flow and higher tooth penetration while sawing hardwoods, the Turbo 7 degree profile has received positive reports from high production, high horsepower, and high feed rate sawmilling operations throughout the world since its introduction in 2013. Previously only available in a standard 10 degree profile, the Bi-Metal blade product line now offers the Turbo 7 profile for a higher cut quality, faster feed rate, and longer-lasting blade especially when cutting abrasive and exotic wood species. Due to the high-alloy backing material and hardened tooth tip, Bi-Metal blades offer a combination of durability and fatigue resistance, enabling a sharp life that is up to 3 times longer than carbon blades.

“While Wood-Mizer is the world’s leading portable sawmill manufacturer, we also have a commitment to provide a variety of high-quality bandsaw blades to the market,” said John Storm, Wood-Mizer Blades Manager. “The Bi-Metal Turbo 7 blade is our latest addition in our extensive blade lineup and is ideal for sawing exotic and frozen hardwoods in a production sawmilling operation.”
