Vorarlberg‘s Sawmillers Visiting Paul
About 20 sawmillers from the Austrian federal state Vorarlberg visited the mechanical engineering company Paul in Southern Germany end of November. They had asked for the possibility of visiting our factory in the course of a joint trip. Of course we gladly took the opportunity to present our products and their manufacturing process. After a brief theoretical introduction with coffee and biscuits as well as the presentation of some videos in the showroom there was a tour of the company with live demonstrations of several machines.
As a first sawmill product, our KME3 circular edger/ripsaw with modern touch screen control met with great interest from the sawmillers. Since this machine for exhibition purposes was only in demo mode, a demonstration with timber was unfortunately not possible. Instead, the automatic infeed system AB920 combined with the CGL rip saw operating from above in the feed direction gave a convincing live performance. A KME2 which will shortly be delivered to Romania demonstrated Paul‘s flexibility to react to customer requirements. It was fitted with a special semiautomatic infeed system (SAB mini). Normally the SAB is combined with larger circular resaws for easier handling of the heavy workpieces. Such a type of the model series SGL for ripping cants of up to 225 mm in height impressed by its enormous size and force.
From the assembly shop for the circular rip saws they continued to the cross-cut systems. Simple cross-cut saws as well as heavy-duty systems with an integrated scanner illustrated Paul’s wide product range. The tour was rounded off by the presentation of a cross-cut line type RAPID_DUO with Paul Wood Scanning System. The visitors were impressed by the performance of this system. The demonstration of an automatic stacking machine showed that Paul of course is a competent partner for its customers in terms of handling equipment as well.
Finally, during a little get-together with snacks and beer, the participants had the opportunity to exchange ideas and impressions. Paul would like to say thank you for the visit and is looking forward to the next event of this kind.
