Innovation and sustainability in forest activities

The definition of the optimal mechanization level of the forestry site must take into account many parameters, including the environmental ones. National forestry businesses need machinery suitable for the terrain and for the extent of the area

Shredders and milling machines, technology for forests

Designed to carry out operations of arrangement and maintenance of the wooded areas, the shredders and milling machinery represent a particularly interesting segment in the field of agricultural mechanics. The difference between a forest shredder and a forest milling machinery is that, while the former is used for shredding trees, bushes, cutting waste and piles of branches, with the latter it is also possible deeply mill and crush roots and stumps

Consolidated Text on woods and chains forestry

With a long-awaited provision, the national forest sector can be relaunched by stimulating active forest management through modern governance, sustainable production, infrastructure creation and knowledge transfer. The text is the result of a constructive dialogue between policy and industry stakeholders, aiming to ensure environmental and landscape protection, the development of new "green economies" and employment growth

Machinery and technology for precision forestry

Technological progress in forestry mechanization over the past decade had led to a significant increase in the competitiveness of timber brought down from mountain woodlands, typical in Italy, compared to users in the flatlands and hilly areas of North Europe. The development of innovative worksites with techniques and highly efficient machinery now ensure interesting margins for lower the cost of timber, optimizing the safety of workers and limiting the impact on woodlands to a minimum. This is the challenge of the SLOPE Project financed by the European Union with an authentic technical-scientific contribution provided by Italian partners

High performance for the Merlo forestry machines

At the exhibition in Hanover, the Cuneo brand presented two new tool-carrying tractors, ideal for road and forest maintenance. These are models MM 135 MC and the flagship MM 350 X, powered by a vigorous Deutz 7,800 cm³ , capable of delivering 350 horsepower

Forestry: types and models for specific mechanization

Mechanical engineering industries manufacture a wide range of machinery for work in the field of forestry. Systems for harvesting timber and biomass have become increasingly technologically advanced but the choice of machinery depends on the specific requirements of the worksite and environmental conditions in which operations are performed. Important new developments have been achieved through the collaboration of the specialized industries and university and research institutes

Mechanization and adding value for woody agro-forestry biomass for energy use

Work on the "green economy" has generated income and jobs throughout Europe. There is still very great potential associated especially with agricultural and forestry biomass for the production of energy but steady support for research and a more ample distribution of mechanization are required. The mechanization industry is today capable of manufacturing harvesters and forwaderes, chippers, shredders and bundlers along with basic machines to make the bio-energy supply chain more efficient and productive

Tecnomeccanica srl: innovation and safety

The Turin company has risen to the fore in the Turin industrial district through the manufacturer's application of innovative to production. Tecnomeccanica machinery is known for reliability and durability and especially for great attention to the safety of the operator

Wood chippers: a necessary technology for forestry economy

In logging and in areas where clearcutting is carried out it is now necessary to leave a clean area behind after this work has been performed. The most convenient method is to chip or reduce the logs felled. The chips produced can be used as fuel, for the production of chipboard panels or compost. Manufacturing industries now market a wide range of wood chippers suitable for the requirements of various work operations
