ER-Saha Oy, a saw mill in Viitasaari, is going to realise a big investment this year.
Nordautomation Oy got a significant order, which includes delivery of saw intake and by-product handling equipment (saw dust, chip and bark).
The value of the order is over 3 million euros and the delivery schedule is very tight. According to the contract the plant should be in production as soon as the summer of 2015.
Extensive cooperation has also provided the basis for fruitful product development. Thanks to longstanding relationships as a supplier, ER-Saha has been constantly able to develop product solutions better suited to the needs of end users.
Nowadays highly advanced automation takes care of the production process, guiding the logs automatically through the chipping canter and bandsaw units. Each log can be sawn individually and in an optimal manner to meet end requirements.
Thanks to flexible production arrangements ER-Saha can produce a variety of different grades and lengths according to the customer's wishes, including small batches. The sawn timber is graded in green and dried in line with end product requirements. Timber can be further refined by means of mechanical stress grading, for instance, for which purpose ER-Saha has implemented an ISO 9003 quality system.
