BOIS FACTORY is a highly technological system for the production of firewood. It consists of 3 TLC machines with cutting disc diameter of 1500 mm that is able to cut logs up to 52 cm in diameter. Each machine has a 70-ton log splitter and 6 windows (splitter grids) which ensure that no split piece has a surface area greater than 9.5 cm. Each TLC is equipped with a robot that adjusts the movement and the position of the log to be split. Each log is butted and the scrap is automatically evacuated to the chipper. Each machine is equipped with a comfortable cabin, inside which there is the control console used by the operator to run the entire process. The two stage log loader is capable of transporting logs of 2 to 5 metres in length and is able to hold the equivalent of 2 semi-trailers. The material that is released from the grid falls onto a moving conveyor belt that merges with another longitudinal belt which collects the wood produced by the three machines and leads to a rotary screen. This removes shavings, bark and sawdust.
Then, once again automatically, the mesh containers are filled with the clean material and carried to the drying cells. Once the right degree of moisture has been reached, these containers are emptied out into a vibrating chute that feeds a second screen to further remove impurities from the wood as it is being dried, before moving on to packaging. In 3 shifts of 7 hours, each system produces over 90,000 tons of finished material per year.
