Banks Hardwoods, Inc. installed a new Mereen-Johnson 524 ripsaw, along with its accompanying Vista chop saw and Weim hog. Banks Hardwoods has also dismantled its outdated Quantum system, and are reconfiguring one of the Mereen-Johnson 424 ripsaws into a single-saw system.
These two separate rip systems with their individual scanners will almost double its ripping capacity at its White Pigeon, Michigan production facility.
“In addition to these two rip systems, we also have reconfigured our Newman 382 planer (previously a part of Quantum) as a fourth production surfacing/grading line, giving us four (4) Newman 382 surfacing/production lines at our White Pigeon facility. Our two new rip systems will be complimented by our Mereen-Johnson 312 ripsaw, and existing Newman 282 planer for finish-surfacing capabilities,” the company said.
Banks Hardwoods, Inc. produces, supplies, and imports hardwoods in North America. It offers moulding, square edged, precision cut-to-length and random length lumber, and precision width sorted products, as well as stiles, rails, and custom blanks.
