Even the most efficient process only produces when it works.

This simple truth guides our business operations at all stages.

This is why we want to be there to ensure that your processes actually work and, in particular, that they work as efficiently as possible. 

Overall competence and security of deliveries

Our mission is to improve the production efficiency and, thereby, the customer’s profit. In addition to efficiency and productivity, we focus on reliability and responsibility.

In our equipment and process solutions, we favour environmentally friendly production and process technologies. We apply the principles of ISO 9001 to ensure the quality of our products and the operations as a whole. As for business profits, we follow the win-win principle.

Equipment for the world’s fastest saw

Nordautomation will deliver efficient log handling, saw infeed and bark handling equipment to the new Metsä Fibre sawmill in Rauma.

The capacity of the sawmill is best described in terms of its log sawing and processing speed, which will be more than 200 metres per minute. After the sawing process, the processing speed in green and dry sorting will be more than 200 pieces per minute per line. Project Director Harri Haapaniemi from Metsä Fibre estimates that the average processing speed in the Finnish sawmill industry is approximately 130–160 pieces per minute.

“Nordautomation’s equipment met our requirements in terms of process efficiency, optimal placement and space arrangements. High efficiency and availability are key to the equipment. They ensure the overall capacity of the sawmill,” says Haapaniemi. Occupational safety will play a major role at the sawmill. In addition to equipment safety, occupational safety includes noise control and related solutions.

“Noise control has been one of the starting points of design from the beginning,” says Harri Haapaniemi .
