Your solution for the economical production of pallet components
The profiling line PRO SL is LINCK's special solution for profiling short logs. It produces pallet boards and components from short logs. The saw line processes pre-sorted logs in accordance with predetermined, fixed cutting patterns. This means, the log gap can be very small which contributes to the high production capacity of the saw line. Together with you, we make the short log profiling line PRO SL your solution for the economical production of pallet boards.

- Log length 1,20 to 2,80 m
The chipper canter infeed system feeds the pre-sorted short logs with a very small gap into the chipper canter which converts them into two-sided cants. Several pairs of rollers hold the short logs in the required position. Directly at the chipper canter outfeed side, the two-sided cants are turned by 90° for further processing.
Guiding short logs accurately through the machine is a challenge. In the LINCK profiling line for short logs, two to three pairs of rollers are constantly holding the short logs stably and in the correct position, hence achieving maximum yield and the required quality during the process.
The chipper canter infeed system centres the two-sided cant right into the chipper canter which converts it to a four-sided one. The following profiler unit produces a sideboard on each side of the two-sided cant which is then cut-off by the saw unit with the smallest possible saw kerf. The separating conveyor separates the sideboards reliably for transport to the stacking machine. If necessary, a belt conveyor turns the four-sided cant by 90° before it arrives at the following machine group.
The separating conveyor reliably separates the sideboards from the centre product for transport to the stacking machine.
A profiler/circular saw unit, same as in the second machine group, produces and cuts off a further sideboard on each side of the cant. These sideboards too are separated and taken to a stacking plant.
The profiler/circular saw unit profiles and cuts-off the sideboards. These two processing steps need very little space.VPS
The split saw, only needed for large diameter four-sided cants, splits the centre products into two ones. Splitting can be asymmetric, in which case the boards will have different thicknesses. To keep throughput high even in the last processing step, two resaws are used downstream for cutting the centre products into pallet boards. A roller conveyor with integrated distribution function distributes the four-sided cants onto these two resaws.
The two circular resaws maintain the high processing speed of the saw line even in the last processing step. As the cutting of pallet boards requires many steps, a single resaw could not process the incoming four-sided cants fast enough. Feeding stations therefore distribute the cants between the two resaws.
The split and circular saws work according to the double arbor principle with two saws. Saw kerf is reduced by distributing the cutting forces to two sawblades.
