Newman-Whitney Machines Convert Wood to Shavings

    Newman-Whitney manufactures machines for converting wood scrap and logs into shavings.

   The LS-1027 and LS-1044 Log Shaving Machines are designed to produce quality animal bedding from logs, timbers, slabs, and other material. Logs are fed into a reciprocating hopper and are shaved using a high-speed steel cutterhead. The cutterhead motor ranges from 75 hp to 100 hp, depending on the model. Feed rates range from 30-100 linear feet per minute, and the machines will make a minimum cut of 1/16-inch per pass and a maximum cut of 3/8-inch per pass.

   The SS-24 and SS-30 Shaving Machines are designed for processing material up to 5 inches thick and 13-23 inches wide. They can process slabs, edgings, cut-off blocks, end trims, and more, simultaneously shaving material of varying width, thickness and length. The machines utilize 16-knife rows of carbide knives for easy maintenance. They are fed by vibratory conveyor and feature a variable feed speed. Shavings may be removed by a pneumatic conveying system or blower.
