The Flying BandSaw Technology developed by EWD – an active saw guide system with intelligent magnets – plays an important role in optimum usage of saw logs.

EWD joined VDMA – BLUECOMPETENCE.  BLUECOMPETENCE is an initiative through which companies voluntarily commit themselves to maintain certain standards in areas such as environmental technologies and resource conservation and so to confirm and further consolidate their role as technological leader in issues of sustainability.

The advantages of the Flying BandSaw Technology

Relieving the saw blade of stress through conventional pressure guides allows introduction of higher saw strain and higher saw speeds. The exact tracking of the bandsaw blade as it passes through the lumber is achieved by the magnetic forces of the FBS technology. This allows for substantially higher feed speeds. The results are constant accurate sizing and notably higher production. The FBS technology achieves excellent production results in summer and winter operation.
