Wood Chipper - 43kW
Design | Engineering | Simulation | Drafting
A client with an existing yet obsolete design wished to re-introduce their product to the market. This rejuvenation warranted a redesign from the ground up to achieve maximum performance, efficiency, manufacturing quality and cost.
The performance requirements were calculated and simulation from first principles. This allowed for optimum selection of cutting blade characteristics, feed rates and drive power requirements.
The detail design and engineering process produced a ready to manufacture product offering performance, quality and cost previously unobtainable. The wood chipper features a 3-cylinder silent running Hatz diesel engine and is capable of chipping logs of up to 250 mm in diameter with automated feed and improved safety features. The chipper is fitted to an integrated, purpose designed chassis.
