Moelven Valåsen AB sawmill in Karlskoga, Sweden is part of the Norwegian wood and building materials group Moelven. The company is now investing in a new sawline for small logs, where Finnish Veisto OY will supply the HewSaw R200 1.1 V4 saw machine. When the machine is delivered and commissioned at Moelven Valåsen in the spring of 2024, SPM Instrument's online system Intellinova Parallel EN will also be installed to monitor the mechanical condition of the sawline.

With a 70–250 m/minute feed rate, the saw machine HewSaw R200 1.1 V4 from Veisto is an efficient machine for processing small timber. 

The online system Intellinova Parallel EN – with thirty-seven DuoTech accelerometers and ten temperature transmitters installed on reducers, sawing, and edging units – will be an essential component in ensuring the saw machine’s mechanical condition. Thanks to the system's patented measurement technologies HD ENV and SPM HD, high-resolution machine condition data can be integrated into the HewSaw MP maintenance system.

Claes Backlund, CEO of HewSaw Sweden, said: "It is very satisfying that both R200 1.1 machines we will be commissioning in 2024 will be equipped with online condition monitoring from SPM. We will be able to monitor these machines efficiently and compare the machines in parallel in their production. Our maintenance system HewSaw MP will have better input, and we will be able to provide even better feedback to these R200 1.1 customers."

Moelven Valåsen produces 375,000 m3 annually of sawn wood products from large and small diameter logs. The raw material is pine and spruce from nearby forests. The sawmill has 107 employees and a turnover of SEK 750 million.
