Active Friction Control

Knife sensor - Active Friction Control



A new knife sensor is now being introduced as an option to all Log Max heads. The Active Friction Control key feature is the active adjustment of the delimbing knifes. The Active Friction Control continuously adjusts the tree stem along the stem path while harvesting, depending on diameter and type of wood.
This feature will give less friction while harvesting, and therefore reduces the energy consumption. When the Active Friction Control is combined with an accumulation kit, it enables a special feature for the multi-stemming process. While operating with multi-stemming the grip of the delimbing knives will reduce to get less friction, in order to prevent jamming of the trees.
Active Friction Control is available for newly placed orders and for retrofitting as listed below.
