HEINOLA supplying saline modernisation for Stora Enso
Heinola Sawmill Machinery is to replace the secondary breakdown of Stora Enso Veitsiluoto Oy’s sawline with a new RG-406 rotary gang, including infeed and outfeed equipment. This forms part of ongoing purposeful sawline development work, involving replacing the old control-based saw with a modern, double-arbor version. This allows for active curve-sawing, an increase in sawing speeds, and improvement of the dimensional accuracy of pieces of sawn wood. The new rotary gang will utilise the HEINOLA Syncro Cutting System method, in which both sawing arbors are on the same line, and the blades are synchronised to cut simultaneously. The saw blades’ short cutting section allow for more powerful curve-sawing, as well as a better yield from curved logs, too. The log information required for active curve-sawing will be provided by the sawline’s current scanning automation system, from where it will be processed by the new HEINOLA sawmill pattern support system and Siemens PLC control system, both to be provided as part of this project.
Engineering and manufacturing of the equipment is already under way. Deliveries, installation and commissioning will take place in Kemi next autumn.
