The demand for high-grade wood has been growing worldwide for years. According to studies of the FAO, the agricultural department of the United Nations, this will remain so for many years, thanks to the growth of the emerging markets. 70% of the wood for furniture and veneer comes from plantations outside the EU, which means that German and European forestry operators are under increasing pressure to work more efficiently. Likewise, especially in the South American plantations, there is a tremendous need to delimb as many fast growing trees as possible. The whole team of advaligno therefore sees very good opportunities to meet the nerve of the industry exactly with their product Patas.
Forestry experts, who already experienced the Patas in action came to the end "The selection of the future crop trees must be completely rethought as soon as this machine is available!" With cost reductions of more than 70%, considerably more trees can be delimbed than, as usual, only every seventh to tenth. Forest owners will be able to dramatically increase the value and yield of their forestry by growing branch-free timber. Service providers are given a tool to carry out their work much more efficiently and more gently for the workforce as well as for nature. So, in the future it will be called more and more often: "High-grade wood instead of firewood!"
On the basis of the internally tested prototypes, advaligno will now be presenting the considerably further improved pre-production machine at the LIGNA 2017 in Hannover, Germany. Live demonstrations of the machine take place regularly at the stand of the company (Outdoor area, P58). The revolutionary technology will be as well presented as part of KWF's "Sonderpräsentation Forsttechnik" ("Special Presentation of Forestry Technology").
