MIT True Lumber

You now have another option when you're looking for a Stationary Carriage with a Movable Headrig. This machine has the ability to single or double cut. Available with bands from 4-10". Standard length from 8-16' and up to 36" diameter but models for other log lengths and diameters are available up to 40' long and 44" wide. The 6" True Lumber has a 55" movable headrig, 6" single or double cut bands, three knees and 17.5 degree slant carriage. Comes with an infeed deck, Nashville style turner, operators cab, board conveyor, sawdust conveyor, carriage drive, Variable Frequency Drives for motor, winch, log rotator and brake, and setworks (either Mudata or Cooper Ultrasonic Measuring System). This is a great machine for thin kerf mills looking for more production, Scragg and tie mills looking to capitalize on lucrative grade markets, resaw capability in a fraction of the space and any mill looking for a higher profit in a smaller space. A 6" True Lumber will be assembled, tested and in stock beginning 2nd quarter 2016 at Cooper Machine.

MIT S.A. Vertical Band 1500 Model

MIT Vertical Resaw Model 1500 has a 59 inch diameter fabricated steel wheels for 8 or 10” bands. Designed and fabricated with a solid center to generate maximum airflow efficiency while still allowing optimum design strength. Flat ground face (unless otherwise specified). Wheels are stress relieved and balanced to insure smooth and vibration free operation. All bearings are first line; flywheel bearings are double taper-lock roller type. The air strain system has air bags for long lasting service and virtually no maintenance except for draining. Line bar comes extra-long and extra high. The resaw also has double parallel hydraulic arms and a variable speed hydraulic feed from 0 to 230fpm. It is driven by 100hp motors 50 or 60htz. It also comes with a Mudata programmable measuring system and a live roller infeed table (7” in diameter). A hydraulic tank and power system comes complete with 7.5hp electric motor for quick change of saws. It comes on a frame of reinforced steel.
