Process solutions for quality thin-cutting, timber repair and cosmetics

WINTERSTEIGER is known for advanced thin-cutting technology that is used worldwide in the production of lamellas. The thin kerf, highest accuracy, a surface to glue and processing the lamellas without additional steps are key benefits for users. WINTERSTEIGER thin-cutting solutions for wood are used in the production of lamellas starting with 1 mm thickness. Among the customers are manufacturers of engineered flooring, doors and windows, multi-layer boards, pencils, musical instruments, etc.


The product line includes thin-cutting frame saws and thin-cutting band saws including upstream and downstream processing, blade sharpening machines, carbide and Stellite® saw blades, and technologies for gluing and pressing.


"Timber Repair and Cosmetics" was added to the WINTERSTEIGER product range following the majority takeover of VAP Gruber Automations GmbH in November 2012.


With the acquisition of SERRA Maschinenbau GmbH in January 2019, the WOODTECH business field is pleased to add mobile and stationary sawmills to the WINTERSTEIGER product portfolio.


What exactly is high-quality thin-cutting?

high-quality thin-cutting
  • Cutting kerfs for band saws from 1.1 mm and frame saws from 0.7 mm
  • High precision: +/- 0.15 mm
  • Cutting surface ready for further processing

All together, these factors (cutting kerf, precision, surface quality) mean maximum wood yield for us and minimum waste of material for the user!
