Drum Wood Chipper

This series of wood chip machine has advanced structure, high slicing quality, wide application of raw materials, convenient operation, and maintenance. The machine consists of machine base, knife roll, upper and lower feed roller, conveyor belt, and hydraulic system.

Mainly applicable to raw material logs, small-diameter wood, wood harvesting residues such as branches and wood processing residues such as board skins, slats, log cores, waste veneers, etc. Can also be used to cut non-wood raw materials such as hemp, reed, bamboo, and so on.


Drum Wood Chipper Features

  • Available for all kinds of materials, including Palm wastes (PKS, EFB), wasted veneers, all kinds of logs, coconut shell, etc.

  • Equipped with special blade steel 55SiCr and H12, specialized in processing materials with high toughness, also very durable with twice lifetime than normal blade steels, especially efficient for crushing plywood veneers.

  • Able to produce wood chips with even shapes and size, 30-50mm chips.

  • Equipped with customised famous brand Type-R Harden Gear reducers to provide smooth material feeding, guarantee the overall performance; Also it’s easy to operate and maintain, outstandingly durable and robust.

  • Applying original imported SKF bearings and high precision processed shafts to guarantee the performance.

  • Using frequency conversion speed control to control the material flow.

  • Stable and high capacity is guaranteed when processing any kinds of materials, and with special modification the drum chipper could smoothly crushing plywood veneers in extraordinary efficiency.

  • Model LDBX217 & Model LDBX2110 applied advanced Inlet Auto Lifting design, equipped with force feeding unit, making them specilized in crushing veneers and clustered materials with high efficiency and perfect wood chip shapes.

Working Principle


The drum wood chipper usually uses two sets of tools, a fixed blade (bottom blade) and a spindle flying blade. The tool material is usually manganese steel, chromium-containing tool steel or other special blade steel.

The machine base is made of high-strength steel through CNC machining and robot welding and it is the supporting foundation of the whole machine.


2-3 pieces of flying blades are installed on the blade roller, and the flying blade are fixed to the blade roller by pressure blocks with specially manufactured flying blade bolts.

According to the different thickness of the raw material to be cut, the upper feeding roller assembly can be raised and lowered within a certain range with the help of a hydraulic system.


The discharge port is equipped with a durable alloy steel screen, and the qualified pieces of cutting material fall through the screen holes and will be discharged from the bottom through the discharging belt conveyor, and the material which is too large will be cut in the machine.
