SPRINGER – Introducing SAWBOX: Revolutionizing the North American Lumber Industry

From Log to Lumber with One Operator

The lumber industry is on the cusp of a technological revolution, and SAWBOX is leading the way with its groundbreaking ability to turn logs into lumber with just one operator.

This innovative sawmill solution is designed to meet the needs of modern wood processing operations, providing a compact, automated system that ensures efficient, high quality lumber production. Most importantly, the SAWBOX allows you to process diameters up to 42 inches that you would not be able to handle in your normal production operations. For businesses in North America the SAWBOX promises to be a game changer, delivering benefits that are too significant to ignore.

Key Benefits of SAWBOX

  • Self-Sufficiency

One of the outstanding features of SAWBOX is its ability to make companies self-sufficient. By allowing companies to cut their own logs, SAWBOX helps optimize production costs and ensures a steady supply of raw materials. This level of control over the production process can significantly improve a company’s profitability and operational efficiency.

  • Cost-Effective Investment

Setting up a SAWBOX is much more affordable than traditional sawing technology. The reduced investment costs make it possible for smaller companies to own and operate their own sawmills, paving the way for greater autonomy and financial stability.

  • Increased vs Enhanced Yield and Efficiency

SAWBOX is designed to maximize the use of each log, achieving yields of up to 75%. This high level of efficiency not only reduces waste, but also increases the overall production, making the most of the available resources.

  • Sustainability and Regional Added Value

SAWBOX supports the use of local wood and the recycling of all wood waste, promoting sustainability and boosting the local economies. By sourcing wood locally and minimizing waste, companies can reduce their ecological footprint and contribute to sustainable forestry practices.

  • Predictable Pricing

With SAWBOX, companies can enjoy long-term stable product prices by controlling their own production processes. This predictability is crucial for maintaining competitive pricing and ensuring customer satisfaction in a fluctuating market.

  • Impressive Cutting Capacity

The SAWBOX can process up to 8.5 million board feet of lumber in a two-shift operation. It accommodates logs from 10 to 42 inches in diameter and from 10 to 16 feet 2 inches (on request 20 feet) in length, available upon request. This versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of lumber dimensions.
