Wood-Mizer’s slogan “From Forest to Final Form” takes on a new meaning

“Wood” – is a word that provokes many ideas such, as a small cottage house made from pine logs, a beautiful set of oak furniture for the dining room, or a perfectly flat larch deck hidden in the backyard. Millions of people in the world can live better thanks to this friendly and sustainable material. It takes a whole lot of passion, hard work, and a dream to craft all those beautiful wood products. Oh, and let’s not forget about proper tools to finish the work “From Forest to Final Form” - The Woodworking machines from Wood-Mizer.

It’s been more than 30 years since Wood-Mizer started its European operations in Koło, Poland, offering to the wood-processing industry a wide range of premium quality machinery. The company has grown a lot over the years, expanding across global markets, investing in new production facilities, and helping thousands of customers to fulfill their goals of working with wood. It’s their unique products that helped to build the Wood-Mizer Family, a wonderful team of workers, professionals, and customers who share one passion – the passion for wood.

Today Wood-Mizer sells sawmills and woodworking equipment in more than 100 countries worldwide, offering equipment from portable to stationary sawmills, horizontal and vertical band sawmills, log processing lines, edgers and multirips, resaws, blades, and sharpeners. Those products are an excellent choice for working with wood in almost every environment - from an enthusiast’s shed to small business workshops and to large industrial facilities. 

Recently, Wood-Mizer has expanded its offering by adding moulders and planers, or simply Woodworking Products. The new woodworking machines include models MP160, MP180, MP200, MP220, MP260, MP360, and MP365. With these compact and versatile machines, the slogan From Forest to Final Form is taking on a new meaning, allowing customers to make their final wood products in an easy and profitable way. Products may range from boards, floors, windows, stairs, banisters, steps, doorframes, doorsteps, picture frames, and other decorative elements. The sky’s the limit for what you can build with Wood-Mizer Woodworking machines!  

Wood-Mizer woodworking products have been manufactured in the local factory in Koło since early 2020. The production site has a global reputation for making top quality sawmills and wood processing machines. No wonder that soon after purchasing the intellectual property for woodworking products from the Swedish manufacturer Moretens in 2017, it was decided to use this valuable experience and begin the production of these products in the Polish Wood-Mizer factory.   

All manufacturing processes are supervised by highly qualified and experienced workers. Wood-Mizer has gathered much expertise during 30 years of the company’s work, and now they are confident in applying this vast knowledge to manufacturing woodworking products. Technical designers constantly improve the technology used in them, production engineers supervise all activities on the production floor, and every machine is checked in detail at the final inspection.

The basic engineering design was to create a very functional product in a compact size, using the best quality materials possible. Wood-Mizer moulders and planers share these characteristics:  

A multi-cutterhead (top, bottom, right, left) allows getting a desired shape of the board after only one pass through the machine.
Individually engaged electrical motors for each cutterhead, helping to decrease power consumption and reduce noise. 
Each cutterhead has easily replaceable knives.
Solid feed table made of stainless steel, ensuring the precision of processing and comfort of work.  
Cast iron planing table is highly durable and resistant to deformation, abrasion, and tension.  
For thickness, the adjustment is made by a quick-access hand crank.
All control functions are accessible from a convenient operator unit.
Sawdust and woodchips generated during the cutting process are directed to the exhaust ports, so the workshop areas remain clean.
The steel body of the machine protects inside electrical motors (separate for each cutterhead), feed rollers, and the adjustment mechanism.
The machine is lightweight and compact, so you can move it around your workshop without much effort.

All Woodworking Products are accompanied by a wide variety of cutting accessories – Wood-Mizer TOOLS, made from top quality European steel and carbide. Among them, you can find HSS cutting knives, carbide-tipped HM cutting knives, double-sided Tri Metal HSS cutting knives, profile HSS knives, dedicated cutterheads with replaceable HM profile knives, kits of HM brazed cutters with carbide tips, 2/3/4-knife cutterheads, and for special customer orders, Wood-Mizer can design custom profile knives or side cutterheads. You may order them online or at your local Wood-Mizer representative. Wood-Mizer ensures top quality customer technical support and service along with a 2-year warranty for every woodworking machine. There is a great number of instructional materials available on YouTube, interviews with customers, guides, and practical advice at your disposal.
