Sawmills of Finland – a different philosophy

Canadian Forestry News - Wed, 2017-11-29 18:08
The faint smell of burnt wood permeates Finland. The likely culprit: with a population of about 5.5 million, it is estimated there are four million saunas. Many of those saunas are heated with wood – a valued commodity, and part of Finland’s culture. Source: Woodbusiness About 65% of the country’s land mass is covered by the boreal forest. Much of that forest is owned privately and managed intensively for sawlog production, which makes the quality and price of saw logs significantly higher than in Canada. “The philosophy here is to use every part of the log. There is zero tolerance for processing mistakes,” explains Martin Arula, managing director for the newly opened Toftan 2 sawmill in Estonia. “We try to maintain the surface quality so we can optimize thickness and width,” Arula says. “We want a smooth, nice surface. It’s not that relevant in North America where you machine the majority of the products after the sawing. There seem to be bigger marked downgrades. Probably the raw material price allows you to do that.” European sawmills are also challenged to cut for a diverse market of countries that have specific product requests. “In our case it’s so expensive that you really have to take care of every single log, every single board as well otherwise you are out of the business,” Arula says. To some extent, Canadian sawmillers can learn from the Scandinavian/Baltic sawmilling philosophy. That is the idea behind HewSaw’s annual sawmill safari, which this year took North American sawmillers, consultants and engineers to two top-producing mills in Estonia and four in Finland. CFI was on that trip in September and gathered some insights into what makes these mills so efficient. HewSaw has been running its sawmill safari for more than 20 years. Bill Tice, marketing manager for HewSaw in North America who organizes the tour, says on more than one occasion participants have changed their minds about the advantages of adopting the European sawmill philosophy. “One of the main reasons we do this trip is so that our sawmills can pick up some new ideas,” Mr Tice says. The most significant difference between mills in Europe and North America is in the log yard. While in Canada logs are at most sorted in five to 10 bins, in Europe mills typically sort between 40 and 80 bins. Logs there are first sent through a metal detector (Estonian mills often find shrapnel in their logs from battles fought in the Second World War). Logs are then scanned and emptied into bins according to saw patterns. Pre-sorting allows the mills to batch run. Minimal change means they can reduce the gap between logs and run at higher speeds, some mills as fast as 200 metres per minute. While 40 or more sort bins make sense in the Finnish and Estonian mills, safari participant Sylvain Messier, notes that space is often a limiting factor for Canadian mills. “We have that type of log sorting at some of our mills but we don’t have that same variety. We sort sometimes eight or 10 bins, but never as many as here. It’s more about room. It takes a lot of room to have that type of log sorting system, and to get the full recovery as they are doing. We’re limited with the room we have,” Mr Messier says. Mr Tice says he’s starting to see more sort bins in North American mills, and expects to see more in the future. “Typically they would be what we call ‘hybrid’, where it’s maybe six sort bins and they are also reducing the gap so it can be quite the advantage to do that” Toftan 2 sawmill in Estonia was built brand-new in 2016. Owned by a Swedish sawmilling group, Mr Arula had the luxury of building the mill from scratch. It took him and his team more than a year and half to research what equipment they would like to use in the mill. Toftan 2 runs three-metre spruce and pine with top diameters between three and 13.5 inches at speeds of up to 650 feet per min. Inside Tit runs a HewSaw R200 1.1 with LogIn 2R, and with Prologic+ scanning software they can change saw patterns in a matter of seconds. Once a batch is complete (about 2.5 hours), full changeover can happen in about seven minutes. With its unique configuration, Toftan 2 has the ability to be the highest producing mill in Europe. “We are very close to that,” Mr Arula says. “We have the will to do it, the whole team. But that is not a target by itself; the target is to earn money. Profit is the most important thing and productively is just one part of the equation. Also unique to Toftan: their drying process includes a two-tonne load on the stack in the kiln to minimize twisting. The kiln is supplied by Finland’s Heinola Sawmill Machinery. JPJ Wood sawmill in Finland recently installed an x-ray whole log scanner supplied by Finnos. Our visit fell on the same day the mill began full operations with the scanner. Mill manager Markus Luodelahti says they chose Finnos because the system scans four sides of the log. “The biggest reason to install x-ray is to better measure bark and in winter time also ice and snow. We don’t have to guess the bark percentage,” Luodelahti says. “The other thing is that seeing inside the log during log sorting means we can sort the same kind of quality logs in the same pocket. That makes for more stable timber quality after sawing and it makes timber sorting easier.” A highlight of the tour was the Metsä Wood Vilppula Sawmill in Finland where an impressive HewSaw SL250 3.4 line was commissioned in 2013. The line handles spruce and pine with top diameters between four and 21.5 inches, at speeds of 200-600 feet per minute. The four-phase breakdown line includes four-sided cant chipping, a cant saw, a ripsaw and an optional cross saw. A rotation correction system improves the log positioning. Canadian company Prologic+ log and cant measuring instruments and programs optimize the line. The system works off campaigns of patterns built by Prologic+, that are based on customer orders. The patterns prioritize by price, but can […]
