USNR introduces new advanced primary breakdown log profiler

by | Dec 18, 2023 | Industry News, New Technology, Supplier Newsline

USNR’s new log profiler consists of innovative technological and design advancements that instantly resolve bottlenecks at the edger in high volume mills while capturing equal recovery, says the company.

It uses smart anvils for precise positioning against sideboards, which can be cut at any angle, to reduce defects and improve chip containment while still allowing flexible cutting on angled solutions. With a feed speed of 225 to 675 fpm and a 200 hp motor on each side, USNR says that it’s the ideal solution for even the most demanding operations.

The lumber guide is nested against the profiler heads to eliminate head and tail end defects, and can be adjusted remotely.

On top of this, the new VFM uses rolls with an updated fine knurl pattern proven to provide more holding force than other knurl patterns. These rolls are backed by an 8” bore air cylinder and are mounted on a 20” diameter slewing bearing to offer higher holding forces on missed-face logs to maintain total control.
