From old to new in 22 days!

SPRINGER upgrades lumber line plant by HILO


Within a very short period of time, SPRINGER was able to replace the existing grading line for side boards at HILO in Losheim, DE with a new state-of-the-art lumber line. In order to be able to install the new grading line with two decks, a trimmer line and a new SPRINGER positioning fence in time, the lumber sorter downstream was already modified by SPRINGER in December.

For the entire upgrade of the plant, starting with the disassembly of the old plant up to the commissioning of the new one, SPRINGER had only a window of 22 days this summer. To ensure that the plant could be assembled on time, entire sections of the line were pre-assembled outdoors next to the production building. Already during the construction phase, care was taken to ensure that individual sections and the respective machines could be easily brought into the production building by a mobile crane. After the successful performance test, the plant was accepted by HILO in due time. 

New log sorter at Boise Cascade

Well-proven log solutions from SPRINGER convince


Boise Cascade is one of the leading American manufacturers of and dealers in timber building materials. For the new stem and block processing equipment in its plywood mill in Florien (Louisiana), it picked SPRINGER’s proven log handling solutions including the robust screw technology.

Following the loading deck, oversized and unsuitable stems are shaped on a defect saw and fed to the slasher deck after debarking and scanning. The stems are trimmed into several blocks of equal length by five crosscut saws. They are then conveyed in two directions by a reversible belt and buffered in a total of ten sorting bins until further processing.

New and improved positioning fence

Ensures the reliable positioning of boards


The consistent increase in conveying speeds requires good quality assessment via a scanner and then reliable positioning of the boards in front of the trimmer. In order to meet any of our customers’ future requirements, SPRINGER has developed a brand-new positioning system.

Adjustment of the end stops is now carried out exclusively by servo technology. As a result, the new positioning fence no longer needs any flaps, cranks or clamping systems that are subject to wear and tear. We focused particularly on ensuring good access, compatibility with existing machinery and easy maintenance. The upshot is real added value for customers.

Packing machinery replaced at record speed

Careful planning, efficient implementation and many years of cooperation

In just 13 days, SPRINGER replaced the ante Group’s packaging machinery for its side boards at the Bromskirchen-Somplar site and dismantled the old machinery too.

Successful remote commissioning

SPRINGER impresses Windymains Timber Ltd. with a customised log concept

The Scottish Windymains Timber sawmill, a member of the Glennon Brothers Group, picked SPRINGER’s innovative and reliable log solutions when it updated its log sorting plant in East Lothian. The existing equipment, such as the feed deck and butt-end reducer from the old system, were added to SPRINGER’s new system concept.

Despite the current restrictions, the modernised log sorting plant was commissioned on schedule. The system was fitted on the customer’s premises in Scotland at the beginning of the year. What’s more, the tried-and-tested SPRINGER screw technology and a new rotating log feeder were added to the old log infeed conveyor. In order to carry out commissioning on time and not to risk the health of staff, SPRINGER commissioned a system remotely for the first time. Therefore, electrical and electronic commissioning of the machinery was carried out by trained SPRINGER experts directly from the Friesach site.

SPRINGER wins the Carinthian Innovation and Research Award 2020

On November 27, the „Innovations- und Forschungspreis des Landes Kärnten 2020“ was awarded in an online press conference. SPRINGER was able to convince the jury with the ED 3000 Wrapper, the innovative fully automatic packaging machine, in the category "large companies".


Now also available with a stitching module

The fully automatic wrapping machine can be equipped with welding heads or the specially developed SPRINGER stitching module. Thus the innovatice machine concept of the ED 3000 enables an efficient and automatic wrapping of lumber pakages with polyethylene or woven material, without interrupting the production process. Depending on the module, a weld seam or a stitched seam guarantees the required tightness of the film hood.

You can rely on SPRINGER systems and solutions. SPRINGER provides support for its projects with optimum maintenance and service concepts, even after commissioning. On request, SPRINGER service agreements cover the entire lifecycle of your machinery and plants. They help to maintain the profitability and efficiency, as well as to increase this by means of ongoing innovations.
