Infeed Roll Section

Eliminate Plug-Ups and Sheet Damage.

SWEED applies the same level of importance and innovation to the Infeed Roll Section, which is the section between the dryer feeder and veneer dryer that is often an afterthought. Dictated by the number of decks, SWEED utilizes geometric angles to determine the best possible landing point for veneer being “shot” onto the infeed roll decks. Appropriate angles can help reduce or eliminate veneer “diving” into rolls and causing plug-ups and/or sheet damage. In the case of a plug-up, an updated dryer feeder design creates a new relationship between the feeder and infeed roll section, providing increased accessibility at this location for addressing plug-ups quickly and easily.

Typically driven by the dryer drive, individual decks can also be driven independently with a gear reducer and frequency drive motor, for ultimate speed control into the dryer.

If applied to SWEED’s patent-pending “Smart-Pause” infeed programming, independently driven decks can be sped up to eliminate gaps created by missed feeds.

Our History

It all started with an imported gang saw. After WWII, three brothers from Germany migrated to the United States and built a sawmill on Galls Creek in Gold Hill, Oregon. Dissatisfied with the imported gang saw they were using, they decided they could make a better saw themselves.
