Mebor System® is our own system of horizontal band saws, which sets us apart from our competitors. With a Mebor band saw you will increase your productivity and yield, as well as decrease labour costs.

Wood is unpredictable and for this reason Mebor band saws have a strong and robust construction. It guarantees reliability of functioning and minimises maintenance costs.

Band saws adapted for your needs – for small and big sawmills. Every Mebor band saw is custom made; therefore we supply each customer an optimal band saw for his needs. We will advise which model is most suitable for your needs and requirements. We will also adjust the configuration of the band saw; for example the distances between clamps according to the lengths of logs, equipment etc.

Automatic board removing (Mebor System® )

We were the first to introduce the board removing system, which saves your time. After the band saw cuts a board, the board pusher pushes it off the band saw bed during the return of the band saw head. Simple and automatic, with no manual work.

Automatic functioning – Mebor System® Labour costs present a big share of costs in sawmills. Regardless of whether it is a small model, or a bigger and faster Mebor band saw model, all of them include automatic guidance. If necessary, this allows the operator to also stack boards on his own, simultaneously during sawing! As it is a one man operation, the labour costs are minimised. The operator should focus on the productivity, quality of wood and output, not on the machine operation. This is done instead of you by the Mebor band saw and you can increase the profit of your company. The control is simple and user friendly. Our customers learn how to operate the machine in a few hours.

Mebor System® leads the operator during cutting. It provides important information, which helps him choose the optimal cutting for best output. Manual control is also available for less demanding users.

Full log manoeuvring equipment is available for fast and effortless work.

Quick and low cost installation Mebor band saws are installed in one day and do not require any special foundations. Precision of cutting is ensured by the solid construction and wide blades. All Mebor band saws are using wide blades (80-210 mm wide). The fact is that wide blades provide higher sawing speed, as well as better sawing precision. The high quality of your products will increase the satisfaction of your customers.
