09.11.18 - Completed installation at Holzwerke Weinzierl

On the new turning unit: Mr. Hans Weinzierl (Managing Director of Holzwerke Weinzierl) with Mr. Alexander Gebele (Managing Director of HOLTEC GmbH & Co. KG)

Also part of the new system: The proven CHAIN-LESS step feeder, which has already been in service at WEINZIERL sawmill infeed for several years.

Beginning of November the installation of the most important system components at Holzwerke Weinzierl could be completed as scheduled. With a wood capacity of about 650,00 solid m³ Holzwerke Weinzierl is currently one of the most efficient softwood sawmills in Germany. The company 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.
In close cooperation with our customer we 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.
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.
