New options of the UPT-250M machine
At the numerous requests of our partners and those who are still planning to purchase the UPT-250M machine, we want to inform you about important design innovations.
1. Increased power in the milling unit for increased productivity.
Starting with the new modification of the UPT-250M machine for thin wood, power motors of 18.5 kW each will be installed regularly on milling and sawing units. In the modification of the UPT-250S machine on the saw units, the power will remain 18.5 kW; on the milling units, it will increase to 22 kW. The maximum power consumption of the UPT-250M is 89 kW, the power consumption of the UPT-250S is 96 kW.
2. Protection against flying out knots and waste in the form of claws.
This design protects the operator from back-throwing large chips and sawdust from the machine entrance window. Structurally, it is a curtain made of metal plates with «claws» hooks that pass the workpiece in one direction, but do not allow chips and sawdust to be ejected in the opposite direction. If it is necessary to reverse the movement of the log (for example, in case of jamming), the entire pack of «claws» is moved to the upper non-working position with one lever.
Protection is installed regularly on all UPT-250M machines.
3. New powerful radial fan for removing small wood chips from the machine.
The system is designed for efficient removal of sawdust and chips from machines of the UPT-250M and UPT-250S series, the new aspiration system allows you to easily transport sawdust along the canal over considerable distances or raise it to a height. Structurally, it consists of a galvanized upper stage with outlets and a dust fan VCP 6.3 with an 11 kW motor.
This aspiration will be offered as a standard one for machines for processing thin wood of a new modification, as well as for replacement in machines of previous modifications UPT-250M, where a system based on a VCP-4 fan was installed as a standard one.
4. Centering clamp of a log
The centering log clamp is designed for automatic alignment and holding of logs on the feeding table (log notation) of the UPT-250M and UPT-250S machines. The clamp can also be moved and locked in the upper non-working position, this option allows you not to dismantle the entire structure if you need to saw logs with a high degree of curvature and protruding branches. The system of levers, shock absorbers and springs provides the same clamping force in the range of working diameters from 100 to 250 mm.
This mechanism greatly facilitates the work of personnel on loading and leveling logs on the feeding table on the UPT-250M and UPT-250S machines.
