ANDRITZ PRESENTS THE WORLD’S FIRST AUTONOMOUS LOGYARD CRANE AND MANY OTHER INNOVATIONS AT LIGNA 2023
International technology group ANDRITZ will present its broad range of new and proven technologies and services for the wood industry at the LIGNA 2023 show from May 15 to 19 in Hanover.
Under the motto “Building the Future Together”, ANDRITZ will be focusing on innovative technologies that enable customers to save energy, water, and raw materials in addition to reducing production costs and increasing product quality.
Key innovations presented will include:
ANDRITZ autonomous logyard crane
The world’s first autonomously operated crane with the AI feature, Metris ANDITM for environmentally friendly, cost-effective operation of log handling. The use of artificial intelligence allows detailed tracking and classifying of the wood received in real time. Running on electricity, the crane causes zero CO2 emissions and reduces noise pollution.
ANDRITZ PM30-6 pellet mill
High-performance pellet mill specially designed for biomass. Based on optimized die speed and a patented feed system, it produces high-quality pellets at reduced maintenance cost and increased capacity.
ANDRITZ adjustable plug screw feeder
State-of-the-art performance control allows the use of dry and wet wood based on a unique adjustable design. With this design, compression can be adjusted to the moisture content of the fibers to optimize water removal in the plug screw feeder area and temperature requirements in the dryer thus reducing energy costs and CO2 emissions.
ANDRITZ will present its products and solutions at two booths:
Hall 25, booth K66 for sawmill and biomass processing technologies
- Biomass processing technologies from single equipment to complete plant solutions including wet milling, drying, fine milling and pelleting
- Sawmill products including debarking and chipping equipment
