From the forest to a finished product, there are many different stages during the processing of the wood. Sawing, debarking, pelletising, veneering, MDF forming & pressing, sanding, stacking, painting… The applications are numerous, but Megadyne has a right range of belts suitable to work in this demanding environment.
Designed to improve power transmission capacity and replace traditionally heavy gears and noisy chains, our PLATINUM timing belt is the latest development in our synchronous system offerings. For high-vibration, heavy-wear applications (often outdoors), we recommend our V-Belt and Pluriband.
Throughout the log cutting, debarking, chipping, and veneer trimming processes, power transmission belts drive saws and blades to prepare the harvested wood for downline manufacturing of plywood and MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) products.
Megadyne conveyor belts are used to convey woodchips through production operations to make MDF boards. The chips are deposited on the belt, where they’re mixed with adhesives and other chemicals in order to be pressed and formed into long, wide sheets of MDF — which are frequently used in roofing and flooring applications, as well as in veneered furniture.
