Log shaver machine structure

The wood shaving machine is mainly composed of the main body of the frame, inlet, outlet, blade, motor, and so on. After raw material enters the machine body through the inlet, the blade will cut the wood into shavings and finally be discharged through the outlet. The whole working process is very fast, making mass-production possible. The size and thickness of the shavings are changeable by adjusting the length of the blade and the degree of inclination of the blade to meet the needs of different customers. Besides, the position and length of the inlet and outlet also can be customized according to the requirements.

The blades of log shaver machine

The blade of the wood shaving mill machine plays a very important part in the whole wood shaving process. The size and the thickness of the final products are related to the length and inclination angle of the blade. High-quality blades are more beneficial for the production of high-quality shavings. Our blades adopt carbon steel material, which not only has a long life but also is easy to disassemble and install.

While no matter how good the quality is, it needs good maintenance for longer service life. For large production for a long time, blades may wear out and become blunt, which will affect the effect of wood shaving. We supply special knife sharpeners, which can make the blade sharp. And we provide installation video.
