Computer Setworks for LT40 sawmills made before 1996

If you’ve been on the fence about integrating modern tech into your older LT40 sawmills, it's time to take notice.

Why Consider Upgrading?

You might ask, "Why fix what isn't broken?" Your old LT40 sawmill has served you well over the years, but imagine giving it a jolt of life with modern technology. You don’t need to buy a whole new sawmill. With the Micron computer setworks model, you can not only rejuvenate your existing sawmill but make it more competitive.

Here’s how Micron computer setworks will make your operations more effective:

  • Say Goodbye to Manual Calculations: No more collecting different scales for varying thicknesses. With Micron computer setworks, select any thickness you desire at any given time.

  • Time Efficiency: More lumber in less time. Need we say more?

  • Minimized Waste: Make the most of every log with precise measurements.

  • Future Proofing: Stay competitive in an industry rapidly embracing automation. Your upgraded sawmill will be in line with current market standards.

  • Cut Non-Standard Thicknesses: With computer setworks, you aren't restricted to standard cuts. Craft unique dimensions with precision and ease.

  • Cost-Efficiency: While purchasing new equipment can be expensive, upgrading your current machinery is a cost-effective way to enhance performance.

  • Safety and Consistency: Automated measurements and cuts reduce the risk of human error, resulting in safer operations and consistent product quality.

  • Enhanced Resale Value: Should you decide to sell your sawmill in the future, an integrated computer setworks will command a better price.

Introducing the SW-350-PRO-WM model

This setworks model can be installed on any Woodmizer band sawmill, including those made before 1996. The most interesting part is that you don’t need to modify your sawmill’s mechanics, changing the lifting motor or changing the gearbox.

Installing the Micron computer setworks on your LT40 is easy and doesn't require any extra steps, like changing the lifting motor with a gearbox or changing sprockets, etc.

What Makes Micron Computer setworks Exceptional?
