Moelven Trysil AS

Higher speed and better quality

LUJA has renovated a saw and delivered a RE-NEW saw to Moelven Trysil, which has meant that the resaw mill now produces much more and is far more reliable.

The Norwegian planing mill Moelven Trysil AS goes back to July 7, 1917. They did not, however, start cooperating with Luja this early, but since 2005, Luja has delivered a number of services to the planing mill, which has resulted in an improvement in production.

Among other things, Luja has improved the lubrication/scraping system and grinded the wheels during renovation of an older saw. Luja has also delivered a RE-NEW saw for the new resaw mill with a new feeder, stronger wheels and new electric control. In addition, the Norwegian resaw mill uses Luja Bio oil.

-We run considerably higher amounts of timber through our system and at a higher speed than we have been used to with our band saws, says Øyvind Løvåsen, department manager at Moelven Trysil.

He explains:
- We have a better flow in production, which simply runs more reliably now. We also have fewer problems with the saw blade, it doesn’t crack or snake anymore, he says.

Great oil for planers and saws

Moelven Trysil has also chosen to use Luja Bio-Oil to lubricate and clean planers and saws. The oil has a number of great characteristics and it isn’t as hard on the machines as other oils tend to be. Overall, Øyvind Løvåsen is very pleased with his cooperation with Luja and did not have any reservations choosing Luja as their supplier.

- We heard about another of their jobs in Norway, says Øyvind Løvåsen. Contact was made to Luja and a long and solid teamwork has developed in regard to the band saw.

- Cooperating with Luja has resulted in a reliable band saw at our resaw mill, he says.
Øyvind Løvåsen particularly mentions that Luja delivers well-considered solutions that give you a band saw that works well for several years without needless stops or problems.
Nor he has any reservations in terms of recommending Luja to others.

- Yes, Søren Luja Hansen knows his job, says Øyvind Løvåsen.
