Timber Industry

Pneutech is prominent within the timber industry where automation and pneumatics are used through the different processing stages. The timber industry presents a number of unique and challenging conditions including a high proportion of dust and variable temperatures. Automation systems need to be tailored to suit these conditions and to provide consistent, reliable, low maintenance and safe systems.

Using our range of valves, actuators, motion control and safety sensors, Pneutech can create a centralised automation concept that will reduce operating costs and improve productivity without compromising safety.
