SmartDISC Strander

SmartDISC Strander
The Kadant Carmanah 37/118 SmartDISC Strander cuts tree length or batch fed logs into strands for OSB production.
An innovative clamping system secures the logs in place while the strander, which is carriage mounted, extends into the cutting chamber. Disc-mounted knives strand the wood within the cutting chamber and the carriage returns automatically to repeat the sequence. The knives on the strander extend to the outer edge of the precision ground disc, allowing the disc to advance through the batch of logs during stranding while maintaining consistent strand thickness.
Available Sizes: 24 Knife + 30 Knife
