Renholmen is one of the leading companies in Europe for lumber handling equipment. The headquarter is in Byske, north of Sweden, and there are also offices in Sweden, Finland and Russia.
Through mechanical knowledge and advanced engineering in all aspects of the project, Renholmen designs and supplies separate equipment units and lines on the turn-key basis in the following fields: green sorting, dry sorting and stackers, packaging lines and sticker handling.
Renholmen AB started in 1952 and is part of the ARA Technology Group owned by Storskogen AB.
Renholmen´s ability to find optimal solutions for lumber handling is well known in many countries all over the world. We offer solutions for sawmills with various volumes of production. We deliver the capacity you need regardless of whether the facility is big or small. That is, the smartest and most economically adapted solution for your specific needs, regardless of whether you are aiming for the highest possible pace or if it fits better with a moderate pace. We call this smart engineering! Reliable constructive solutions guarantee equipment endurance, and our customers know that their investments in Renholmen equipment will bring profits for a long time.
Good service, great results and a trustful relationship often leads to long-term collaborations. Many years of experience in the sawmill industry makes us understand the needs of our customers. Over the years, we have installed most systems available on the market.
We communicate in many languages.
Renholmens new control system is easy to use for operators and shortens commissioning times. The control system is modular, which means that it is possible to use the same controsystem for a long time, regardless of which new technologies are added, and it is also possible to easily reuse programs between the facilities.
A development work is ongoing to create digital images of the machines’ physical systems, functions, and production process. With sensors and data collection from the real process, it is possible to analyze systems and create more sustainable processes and business models. It also allows the systems to be evaluated in a risk-free, virtual environment before commissioning. The environment can be tested without risking expensive production stoppages.
Our new electrical cutting system is efficient and environmentally friendly. The benefits are flexibility, accuracy, and the high capacity. Each cut can be optimized based on its specific conditions. The system completely lacks pneumatics and hydraulics, which also minimizes energy losses. Energy recovery is also built into the system.
We offer a wide range of machinery and solutions in the product area of green sorting. Our buffer solution has been built into plants, both new and existing, with great success.
The bin section consists of an optional number of lowering-sink bins or trays, depending on the requirements for careful handling and capacity needs. Renholmen’s Sticker Stacker builds consistently stable and quality packets for the drying process that follows.
Our tilt hoist, often equipped with an assisting Unscrambler, are stable with a minimum packet turnover time. The stick receiver with truck stick handling has also undergone a change in generation in which the truck sticks are separated from the drying sticks in an efficient manner.

SERVICE, UPGRADES AND SPARE PARTS
Many of Renholmen’s early deliveries are still in production and even today there are full-scale materials available for these machines. The company still provides service and spare parts even though the machines are from the early 1980s, for example machines from Renholmen, Vitech, Hammars och Forslunds.
Over the years there have been many upgrades of Renholmen’s standard machines that are available. The upgrades can be of great help to increase production, accessibility and to minimize downtime.
