From the past to the present – nothing works without wood

Versatile, environmentally friendly, renewable, sustainable

From today’s point of view, wood as a renewable raw material, CO2-storage and material with excellent insulation values is probably the most sustainable raw material currently available worldwide. Sawing and planing is the step in wood processing that refines the raw material wood into a working material after harvesting and prepares it ideally for the further production cycle.

However, nowadays the demands on the end product in terms of quality and efficient processing are no less exacting. So it is not surprising, that the processes in the mechanical processing of raw wood have also reached a technical maturity level that specialists like Leitz call to mind when it comes to the optimum design and layout of processes in machinery and production plants.


Planing

For dimensional accuracy, precision and surface quality

Planing

For dimensional accuracy, precision and surface quality

The first step after cutting the raw wood is planing and is the most important step in woodworking. Here the shape and material thickness are determined and, depending on the requirements, surfaces and base surfaces are created.

The selection of the right tool and the suitable machining strategy are decisive for the results in all subsequent machining processes.


Finger jointing

For a good joint

Finger jointing

For a good joint

The dimensionally stable jointing of several short wooden parts to form one large component creates wooden construction elements that would not occur in nature in the required shape, size or load-bearing capacity. Particularly important is the quality and stability of the corresponding type of joint, such as the finger joint.

For the production of high-quality flat or upright joints, tools are required that are optimally matched to the material, adhesive and final use.


Profiling

Shaping of the workpiece

Shaping of the workpiece

Profiling is the final processing step in solid wood processing – from raw wood to the end product. Here the workpiece is given its final shape. At the same time, this part of the process also defines the quality of the end product and thus also the impression that the consumer perceives.

This and the requirements of modern production concepts require above all efficient and adaptable tool systems that are reliable and flexible.
