Wood -- the resource with a future.

Vecoplan is the leading manufacturer of wood waste grinders. Throughout the world, wood industries choose Vecoplan grinders to better manage the waste wood that is produced as a byproduct of their manufacturing processes. Sometimes used for simple volume reduction of scrap wood, in order to reduce the cost of hauling it to the landfill, Vecoplan grinders can also turn wood waste into something valuable.

Vecoplan wood grinders are used to produce boiler fuel, animal bedding, mulch, and material for the production of particleboard or other composite materials such as wood/plastic decking. In today’s environmentally conscious world Vecoplan grinders are frequently used to expedite the composting process, or to prepare wood and other biomass for conversion to alternative fuels including pellets, cellulosic ethanol and other second-generation bio-fuels.

Green wood or dry wood, large scrap or small scrap, hardwoods or softwoods, solid or composites, Vecoplan grinders handle all types of waste wood. For general scrap, of mixed shapes and sizes, Vecoplan offers their VAZ grinder series. VAZ grinders are fed vertically via a large hopper positioned above the cutting chamber. Or if most of your scrap is lineal, Vecoplan offers their VTH series of horizontally fed grinders. Perfect for edge rippings, slabs, mouldings, profiles, flooring, or any long wood, VTH grinders are fed by a vibratory conveyor that comes standard with the machine.
