Robust products for heavy operations !
High starting torque, major variations in load and fast sequences with high dynamics are challenges that need to be handled by the control equipment in your sawmill. CG Drives & Automation products are well suited thanks to robust construction and advanced built-in functionality. Quick stops of saws and rotors and interruption free feeding will save valuable processing time, as well as investment and maintenance costs.
Efficient conveyor for debarking feed.
Our AC drives ensure the right feeding rate when taking in timber for debarking or transporting bark from the process. Direct torque control handles abrupt load changes, reducing mechanical stress and preventing interruptions and false trips. A heavily loaded conveyor is efficiently started by utilizing also the full motor capacity from standstill. Fitting the AC drive with a brake resistor also lets you stop the feed extremely quickly. A built-in load monitor detects any deviation from your selected load levels, for example, if a belt is broken or overloaded.
Quick stop of saws without external brakes.
A saw often requires a quick stop for security or productivity reasons. The advanced braking functionality of our softstarters eliminates the need for expensive and space-consuming external brakes. Quick and safe stops are ensured by the built-in vector brake, or the built-in reverse current brake for band saws and saw applications requiring even shorter braking times.
Reducer stopped in seconds.
Cutting the braking time of the reducer rotor, bark rotor or bark stripper can save valuable processing time. This equipment usually requires several minutes in which they coast freely while decelerating to a standstill. The built-in vector and reverse current brake of our softstarter can often reduce the braking time down to seconds.
