Sharp Chain Scragg Mills

Yield Champ

The Yield Champ Scragg is a combination Sharp Chain Scragg and Edger for further processing the cant. It utilitizes an optimized log turner and sharp chain feed system. A great benefit of the Yield champ is it requires minimum man power (only one man is needed to operate both the Sharp Chain Scragg and Edger). Once the log is through the 44”, 48” or 56” diameter saws (depending the customer’s requirements), the cant is rotated 90 degrees and then fed into a second saw(s). There it is cut into a three or four sided cant or into two cants and two slabs with the three saw option. This mill is available with Cooper computer controlled saw setworks (which provides precise cutting of cants) as well as several options depending on customer needs including an infeed deck and slab recovery system. All of this equipment is manufactured from heavy duty steel and parts to create a long lasting machine with low maintenance costs.

Tandem Scragg Saw with Inline Chop Saw

Cooper Tandem Scragg is great for smaller diameter logs when you want production without a lot of employees. The Tandem Scragg is comprised of two saws, 48 inch Saw 1 and 36 inch Saw 2 (custom configurations available). Thinnest material/thickest material saw 1 can cut is 3” – 12”. Ultrasonic sensors for diameter reading of logs for first saw autoset with manual operator override, auto band saw set to make four sided cants. Comes with a Generation 3 Precision Chain Feed using 140 roller chain and hardened t-rail track, 20hp variable speed electric chain drive with VFD climate controlled cab, and four camera color monitoring system. Saw 2 has a minimum 3” saw set. Saw two comes with two 75hp motors and polychain belt drives, 2” induction hardened chrome shafts and linear slide bearings, and temposonic cylinders with sensors and helper cylinders for husk frame autoset (and manual override). The outfeed consists of 6" cant/slab separation wings behind saw, four sets of spring loaded hold-on wings and an 8” H-beam common frame. This machine can come in a system and include an inline infeed with chop saw, slat tables and an Outfeed Rollcase. For more information or to design the system to fit your needs, give us a call.

Cooper Machine offers several versions of the Sharp Chain Scragg. The Standard Sharp Chain uses 100 roller chain with drags to run inside 3 x 4 x 3/8 tubing with 3/8 x 1 AR wear strips. It is built to accommodate smaller diameter (from 3 ½” to 12”) low grade logs with standard feed speeds from 40” to 20’ long. The Sharp Chain Scragg is also available with manual setworks, the Cooper profiling and measuring system or Lewis Controls 3D scanning. This equipment is manufactured from heavy duty steel and parts to create a long lasting machine with low maintenance costs.

Precision Sharp Chain

Cooper Machine also offers a high quality Precision Sharp Chain that comes with a 140 roller chain t-bar rail sharp chain system for faster production. It has a thumper to drive the log down on the chain. The Precision Sharp Chain Scragg is also available with manual setworks, the Cooper profiling and measuring system or 3D scanning. All of this equipment is manufactured from heavy duty steel and parts to create a long lasting machine with low maintenance costs. The Sharp Chain is also available with MIT (or customer's choice) band saws behind it to split cants into (2) three-sided pieces for maximum yield. MIT S.A. horizontal bands are available with 4,5, or 6” bands for this purpose.
