Drewmet machines, designed and manufactured by our company, are characterised by their durability and robust design. Built with high precision, these woodworking machines (saws) are popular with many recipients since they are characterised by almost entirely failure-free operation when processing wood up to 380 mm thick. Drewmet machines include theCircular Sawing Machine TT-400, which handles initial woodworking, i.e., more specifically, cutting off the outermost timber layer, producing a cuboid with the width of the log being cut (Middle log – learn more). In order to accelerate and optimize the results, theTwin Shaft Multisaw WD-200/240/M was designed, intended primarily for cutting timber logs into thinner planks. Thus, the material prepared earlier, with the width of the log being cut, is further processed and this task is something theTwin Shaft Multisaw WD-200/240/M is suited for. Hence the finished product is produced, consisting of planks, strips or square timber with widths depending on the set width of circular saws. The thickness of planks is set manually, by setting the distance between the saws on the shaft. The maximum and minimum thickness is described in the multisaw’s technical specifications.
One of the flagship machines manufactured by Drew Met is the type WD-200/240/M. dual spindle multisaw. It is equipped in two floating saw spindles, i.e. moving in relation to each other in the vertical. They allow for configuring the machine in such a manner that each spindle cuts through half of the width of the log being cut, regardless of the thickness of the material being cut and the diameter of saws being used. The machine is capable of cutting with saws with diameters between 200 to 300 mm. The recommended kerf thickness is 2.5 to 3.2 mm, depending on the thickness and type of material being cut. Saws with a 2.8 mm kerf are used most often, which makes the machine very economical, since a small kerf means not only material savings, but also much lower electric power consumption. In order to eliminate the necessity of frequent stops in the machine’s operation, caused by the sawdust extractor channel getting clogged by edgings and scraps of bark, a mini-chipper, is installed in the bottom section, which completely eliminates the need to frequently stop the machine due to the sawdust extraction channel getting clogged and blocked. Thanks to the installed mini-chipper, edgings and bark falling into the extractor channel together with sawdust are being cut as they come and thrown into the sawdust extractor suction pipe together with the sawdust.
Another, just as efficient machine manufactured by Drew Met is the type TT-400, circular sawing machine, intended for cutting apart medium-sized timber, with diameter not exceeding 380 mm. In order to eliminate the losses of energy needed to overcome the resistance of the belt transmission drive, cutting saws are installed directly on the rotors of the electric motors. The use of four electric motors fixed on supports in pairs allows for rapid adjustment of the machine to varied middle log thickness, ranging from 60 to 160 mm, without the need to remove the cutting saws. In order to optimise the cutting conditions, a positioning mechanism for the feeding and receiving table is used, allowing for balancing out the loads of top and bottom spindles and, as a result, a significant increase in the machine’s efficiency. Both of the machines manufactured by Drew Met are designed with focus on decreasing their dimensions to the necessary values, so that they take up as little space as possible while achieving the best possible work results.
