Encoders for Sawmills and Wood Processing

With old mills coming back online and retrofitting existing mills for automation, reliable feedback for precision motor control is critical to improving mill efficiency and process optimization.

Encoder applications include controlling infeed line speed, positioning blades for optimal log cuts, speed and position control in debarkers, edgers and veneer peeling lathes and precision control in automated grading machines.

The wood processing industry relies on incremental encoders and absolute encoders that can handle high speed and tough environments without failure. Dynapar meets this requirement offering heavy duty hollow-shaft encoders with unbreakable code discs, rugged encoder designs that withstand up to 400g shock and 30g vibration and IP67 sealing. Dynapar encoders offer fast lead times averaging 3 days or less with rush delivery available.
