Equipment Used

WSM is the leading machinery manufacturer of wood waste and wood fiber processing equipment for the Panel Industry.

This leadership is a result of WSM’s focus on providing effective and efficient solutions to the panel industry which include hog fuel processing systems, panel trim/reject panel processing, and milling and screening of MDF and particleboard furnish. WSM processing systems are the standard for reliability and low maintenance operation. You can count on vertical and horizontal feed hogging systems, hammermills, high-speed and mid-speed shreddersvibrating screens, oscillating screens, and trommel screens to provide the most durability and reliability.

Industry Challenges

In the current wood supply environment where every bit of available fiber is being sought by so many different buyers, the ability to screen, clean, and size what have been traditionally low-value wood sources can make the difference between profit and loss in your mill. WSM’s screening and milling machinery include disc screens (including WSM's new and innovative Waterfall™ Fine Screen), vibrating and oscillating screens, green side grinders, high capacity hammermills, and horizontal hogging and grinding systems.

From the time the wood is delivered to the mill to the point at which it enters the final processing stages, WSM feeders, conveyors, screens, and sizing systems have the ability to transform these low-cost raw materials into a consistently sized and clean fiber product perfectly suited to your mill’s process. Uniform fiber runs better, and proper screening, hogging, and milling are keys to uniformity. Investing in the correct front end provides enormous benefits for your business.
