Sawmills face an array of challenges when it comes to process control; high starting torques, major variations in load, and fast sequences with high dynamics. Thanks to their robust construction and advanced built-in functionality, AC Drives and Soft Starts from H2flow are well suited for these applications.

Quick stops of saws and routors, and interruption free feeding will save valuable processing time, and reduce overall operating and maintenance costs.

H2flow Soft Starts and Variable Frequency Drives offer several advanced solutions specific to the operation of a sawmill: Ensure the right feeding rate of timber for debarking, quick stopping of saws with vector braking, dramatically decrease the braking time of the reducer rotor with the built-in vector and reverse current brake of the MSF and TSA Soft Starts.
