Production of sawn timber

One of Sweden’s most modern private sawmills

The timber production and industrial process at Fiskarheden Sawmill starts at the time of harvesting in the forest. We plan production according to the measurement results displayed by the harvester’s computer. Logging trucks then drive the fine pine and spruce timber from the logging sites around our purchasing area to Fiskarhedens sawmill. Pulpwood and by-products are transported to other industries.

High quality wood products

Fiskarheden produces high quality pine and spruce timber in various dimensions. Below you can see the different stages of timber production in the sawmill.

How it works


Independent measurement of logs

The independent timber meters from Biometria manage the flow through the timber sorting & with the help of our CT-Log, the quality of the logs is assessed when they arrive at the sawmill. The assessment is the basis for what the forest owner is paid for his forest. We then debark the logs and sort them according to size. This is also where the first X-ray (CT-Log) is located, which not only optimizes the posting image that is most optimal in each log, but also creates a unique digital ID called a fingerprint.

Detailed measurement in measuring frame

In the saw intake, we first measure the log in a three-dimensional measuring frame to see the size, crookedness and ovality of the log. Then we turn all logs so that the top enters the line first. Before the log reaches the saw blades, we X-ray the log a 2nd time to find the unique ID called fingerprint again. Based on this information, the log is rotated into the first saw against a fixed sawing pattern, so-called posting.

The wood is sawn into planks and boards

The log will go through four different sawing groups to become planks and boards.

The planks are sorted into different dimensions

The next stop is the raw sorting, where we perform sorting in different dimensions. Between each layer of planks, we lay horizontal ribs, known as stratification.

The wood products are dried to the right moisture content

Now it is time for drying in chamber dryers or traveling dryers. We have a total of 41 dryers. The use of the wood determines the degree of drying, which can vary between 10 and 20 percent.

Cut in the drymill and marked

The drymill plant is the last stop for the timber before delivery. Here we sort everything individually according to quality and cut into the desired modules or lengths according to the customer's wishes. The timber is then packaged. Each package receives a specification with an ID number and information about what the package contains.

Delivered from the sawmill to the world

Transport from the sawmill is optimized and goes to one of our Swedish ports. In the port, the timber is stored protected from the weather and wind while waiting to be transported out into the world.
