Holzwerke Weinzierl installs a new chain-less step feeder at its mill in Germany. The commissioning of the system is planned for the beginning of January 2019 – at this time the existing log sorting plant will also be shut down, as Holtec says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Holzwerke Weinzierl is developing very dynamically and has already expanded significantly in recent years. To keep satisfying the increased requirements of the internal timber logistics and the storage they bought a new site.
This new area provides the possibility to renew the whole timber logistics – with a new, high-performance and innovative log sorting line.
In 2017 Holtec already received the order to deliver a completely new sorting line for short logs. Holtec designed a system which corresponds exactly to the needs of Weinzierl including a special turning unit which transfer the short logs at a 90 degree angle to a second sorting line.
