In the sawmill, the selected logs are prepared for production and sawn into planks. With modern machines, the round wood can be completely measured and cut to size so that as little waste as possible is created. Production residues can be collected and later reused for the production of high-quality briquettes.
Learn how the boards for your floorboard are created from a tree trunk and learn about the exciting steps of wood processing inside a sawmill.
Because of our proximity to the Black Forest, we can react flexibly to orders and cut our wood as needed – regardless of the season. Even in winter, we can meet the special requirements of storage offering impeccable quality from our home mountains. This way, we can ensure that only as much wood is cut as we actually need. We see the prudent use of natural resources as our responsibility, and it is therefore of central importance to us.
The roller shown here transports the log to the gate at the right sawing speed. This allows optimum conditions for cutting and facilitates cutting even with strong wood.
Each tree trunk is measured electronically and cut to fit precisely according to length and diameter. First, the outer parts of the trunk are removed, then the individual wood cutting is done by exposing the heartwood. This process is crucial for the quality and dimensional stability of the wood and requires the highest precision.
The round wood is now turned into sawnwood. Suitable for the individual dimensions, the boards are cut so that there is as little waste as possible.
The coarse planks are sorted by width and thickness and prepared for subsequent processing in the drying chamber.
