Customer Day at Wood-Mizer’s European Headquarters – New products in operation

Every year, Wood-Mizer hosts a two day open house event at their European headquarters in Kolo, Poland. 
In 2018, customers were able to see the following machines in action:

Two versions of the LT70WIDE sawmill were shown – the LT70WIDE with walk-along controls and an LT70WIDE with a remote operator station and cable curtain. 

The WB2000 wideband sawmill with a special new conveyor for offloading boards without damaging the surfaces, plus a new heavy-duty three-way transfer conveyor.

The TITAN EG800 edger was demonstrated, a robust machine that edges material up to 40mm thick at high speeds, making it the ideal companion to the TITAN Resaws. It can also be run at slower feed speeds to rip material up to 110mm thick.

Wood-Mizer Cutting TOOLS had a tent where sample blades and knives were on display, but the full catalogue could be discussed with the TOOLS product manager. No matter what kind of machine you have, or what kind of wood you are cutting, you can now get all your circular blades, frame saw blades, planer knives, and wideband blades directly from Wood-Mizer! Wood-Mizer TOOLS are already being used by our customers throughout Europe, Africa, and North America. With more than 2,000 available items in stock, the product range covers just about every sawblade size and application required, and the product range is expanding all the time.

The LX450 sawmill was also demonstrated for the visitors. The LX450 twin rail sawmill makes Wood-Mizer the first and only manufacturer to give sawyers the choice between a monorail or twin rail design. Featuring many of the same benefits of the world renowned Wood-Mizer LT sawmill series, the new LX450 sawmill expands the available cutting width capacity on a professional Wood-Mizer sawmill to 86 cm, and expands the depth of cut to 41 cm. Customers in the UK have reacted very positively to their new LX450s, which will be seen in upcoming videos.

The MP260 and MP360 planer/moulders were also demonstrated. Wood-Mizer now offers a workshop range of planers / moulders for anyone making finished lumber. The MP260, MP360 and MP365 planer / moulder machines have been manufactured in Sweden for more than 25 years and are tried, tested, and proven in workshops throughout the world under a variety of different brands. Today, the same machines are manufactured by the same dedicated team in the same facility in Sweden that is now owned by Wood-Mizer.

The MS300 (previously PS315) table saw was also demonstrated. Solid table saw with minimal footprint for any workshop, the MS300 is a well-balanced precision saw with large capacity. Its cast iron table and wide sliding carriage enables you to achieve high accuracy and repeatability.
