The MR200 Gang Rip Saw increases the productivity of a sawmill operation by significantly reducing the amount of work and time needed to rip cants into boards. Reliability, accuracy, versatility, and ease of use make the heavy-duty Wood-Mizer MR200 Gang Saw a profitable investment for pallet and lumber production operations.
Capable of ripping cants up to 21” (540mm) wide and up to 7-3/4” (200mm) thick, the MR200 Gang Rip Saw features a compact footprint without sacrificing capacity. Featuring two height adjustable arbors, the MR200 can be equipped with up to 12 circular saw blades on each arbor with a maximum of 18” (460mm) between outer sawblades, significantly speeding up the cant rip sawing operation. Three driven press rollers on both the infeed and outfeed are located close to the saw blades for sawing cants as short as 28” (700mm) and the heavy-duty modular infeed and outfeed tables provide an unlimited cant length capacity with additional 6’ 8” (2m) tables.
Feed speed is adjustable from 5 - 50fpm (1.5 - 15m/min), and the centralized control panel has two separate sets of controls for managing each arbor individually to attain optimal feed speed, energy use, and production. The MR200 is powered by two 20HP (15 kW), 25HP (18.5 kW), 30HP (22 kW) or 40HP (30 kW) motors with ammeters on the control panel monitoring the load of each motor. Other features include a laser line and infeed assist roller for precise alignment and efficient feeding of cants, an optional built-in chipper to prevent unnecessary downtime to clear out sawdust from the machine, and built in forklift pockets allow for easy handling of the machine for layout flexibility.
