Polar Life Haus orders world’s largest log planer from Ledinek16 March 2020
The planer can handle logs with a maximal width of 600 mm and maximal thickness of 600 mm for use in timber framed and log built homes.
Finland’s Polar Life Haus started building timber houses in 1965 and is still owned and operated by the Vainionpää family.
The statement from Ledinek, on supplying the new planer, stated that the planer “Has a rigid heavy frame, high motor power and strong tooling spindles were the base upon which this advanced solution for adaptable and effective production of log beams for log houses was developed. Extra long vertical spindles have an increased axial adjustment, thus allowing planning of full height or mounting of multiple tools on one spindle.”
Connected with Ledinek’s tool presetter and Tool Manager software, switching between different products can be achieved without stopping the machine.
