Size reduction

Reduction technology for all wood assortments

MAIER machines enable energy-efficient processing of freely selectable raw materials. You gain a significant competitive advantage due to cost-optimized production of wood-based panels and pellets, for example.

That benefit applies to both our single machines and entire plants. This is possible due to our extensive know-how of material flow and behavior combined with our advanced and innovative machine techniques.

With robust MAIER machines, all wood assortments—from logs to recycled wood—are reliably size-reduced and optimally prepared for further use.
