PALLMANN: The Latest Innovations and product improvements at Ligna 2015.

Pallmann, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of machines and wood yard systems, will be at LIGNA 2015, the world’s leading trade fair for the forestry and woodworking industry, where it will present innovative developments and product improvements.
Pallmann can be visited at Stand E 35 in Hall 27.
It will be highlighting various products, including its new state-of-the-art PZSC Knife Ring Flaker. Measured across the available cutting length of the knives in the knife ring, it is the world’s biggest ring flaker. In its knife ring and impeller, the PZSC uses the tried and tested counter-rotating principle to convert wood chips into high grade flakes of uniform size and consistent quality. The counter-rotating principle also ensures that equal use is made of all wearing parts. The flakes can then be used to manufacture particleboard, pellets and briquettes.
Pallmann will also be showing off a number of other machines at LIGNA, including its new Disc Chipper, type PHS 30H12, which is the most efficient machine of its kind in the Pallmann range. This chipper makes high quality chips from round wood, which can be used for a variety of purposes, such as the manufacture of fibres for the MDF- or paper industry. The ability to change the knives more quickly reduces downtime when wearing parts are replaced – which means less time wasted. The machine was specially developed for the MDF and paper industry, which requires high and consistent material throughputs.
For the MDF sector, Pallmann will also be showing off a new maintenance-friendly bearing concept for the feed unit used in its Pressurized Refiner, type PR. This concept makes it possible to replace individual components without having to take the whole unit apart. Pallmann is looking forward to this year’s fair and welcoming both new and returning customers to its stand.
