Wood chippers are commonly found in industrial lumber applications as part of recycling and other manufacturing processes. However, they can also be a crucial component to producing animal bedding! These wood chipper blade holders are for a machine which takes the logs and turns them into animal bedding. After the holder is installed every groove gets a blade and a wedge installed, and then chops up logs. Each chipper head starts off as a 1200 pound piece of steel, pictured below, and is then turned on a lathe to size and slots are milled.
Wood Chipper Blade Maintenance
When using dull or damaged wood chipper blades, the chips can be inconsistent and/or torn. Therefore, it’s important to have wood chipper blades apart of your preventative maintenance program to avoid this inconsistency. Dull blades can slow down production and result in an inferior product.
