Company Details

The company Wema Probst Wolfgang Hofmann GmbH (short: Wema Probst) is a specialist for sawmill systems for the processing of small timber. The product range primarily includes sawmills and machines for round processing and the associated conveyor systems.

A speciality are machines for cylindrical peeling and round milling of single pieces or in throughfeed, but also for cross-cutting, pointing and edging of round timber and squared timber. Typical end products are poles (electricity and telegraph poles), posts and piles, for example for use in viticulture or as garden timber. Log house plants allow round milling and subsequent longitudinal profiling of the small logs.

A sawmill plant from Wema Probst for the production of boards and squared timber achieves a timber yield of up to 65 percent, depending on the cutting pattern and round timber length. Thus, weak raw wood is processed into elements for glued beams, pallets, parquet and other finished products. Some plants are particularly suitable for woods that are difficult to process, such as maritime pine.
