Saw lines

Brødbæk & Co. develop, produce and install highly automated and complete saw lines, which optimize the yield of each log based on scanning of the individual logs.

We offer two main concept solutions:

  • Pallet sawmills
  • Flexible sawmills

Both concept solutions are built in numerous variants – fully adapted to individual customer requirements.

The line can either for investment by the application of a merry go round or for capacity if our customers demand is high enough.


  • Maximizing flexibility for different products
  • Scanning in 3D to optimize cutting patterns and yield.
  • Improved labor content and yield on low quality logs

Pallet Sawmill

Brødbæk & Co. pallet sawmill lines for short, inferior quality logs provide a flexible production line with high recovery, capacity and quality.

Advantages of using pallet sawmills

The design and manufacture of the machinery secure low labour and maintenance costs. 

This special type of line is based on the philosophy of cutting long, bent cants into short and straight cants for an individual optimization and maximum recovery.

In other words: To work up less valuable raw materials into a final product of good quality. 

The flexible standard sawmill lines can be delivered for sorted or unsorted logs, with measuring by 2D or 3D scanner or by a combination of both.

Brødbæk & Co. sawmill lines are supplied as “turn-key” projects, wired and tested, to minimize setup and startup time. 

Flexible sawmill

Brødbæk & Co. flexible sawmill lines for timber production. These types of sawmill lines are based on maximizing flexibility for sawing several different products.

Advantages of using flexible sawmills

The concept allows for presorted as well as for unsorted logs to be sawn.

Log measuring and optimizing is carried out by use of 3D measuring equipment for maximum recovery or by use of simpler 2D scanning equipment.

The machinery set-up may include band saws or circular saws or a combination of both. The layout can be a straight line, merry go round or a combination. The sideboards can be made by using a profiling line or an edging line.

Brødbæk & Co. sawmill lines are supplied on turnkey basis – wired and tested – to reduce installation and commissioning time.
