Drum chipper is heavy-duty equipment for producing wood chips. It is widely used in the material preparation section of wood chip mills, particleboard, fiberboard, paper mills, biomass fuel plants, etc.

The raw materials processed by the drum chipper are mainly logs, waste wood, wooden pallets, building templates, nailed boards, wood cutting residues (branches, twigs, etc.), and wood raw material processing residues (slabs, slats, round wood cores, waste veneers, etc.), which can also be used to cut non-wood materials (such as sugarcane, reed, bamboo, etc.).

2-4 blades are installed on the blade roller, and the blades are fixed on the blade roller by means of pressure blocks with specially manufactured blade bolts. According to the different thicknesses of the raw materials, the upper feeding mechanism can be opened and closed within a certain range with the help of a hydraulic system. The cut qualified chips fall through the screen holes and are discharged from the bottom. The large wood chips will continue to be cut in the machine until they are finally discharged through the screen.
