Why Choose Pinnacle SA?

Pinnacle SA provides on-site installation, training and after-sales support to ensure a complete, sustainable solution.

Pinnacle SA manufactures high-quality sawmills and lumber yard equipment. Our design methodology prioritises easy operation and maintenance. Using our customer’s specifications, we design the most cost-effective solution to get the job done. Our machine layouts are adaptable and easily integrated into existing sawmill lines. We design machinery and equipment around your specific requirements.

When we start the design process, we consider the following factors:

1.

What facilities and equipment currently exist on site?

2.

We consider the timber size and species being processed.

3.

We consider the final dimensions of the product being produced.

4.

We take into account the production volumes required per shift.

Pinnacle SA's New Era Design Philosophy

While the New Era design philosophy seems obvious and logical, it’s surprising how few machines are designed using this approach. Like they say, common sense is not so common. While complex control mechanisms work well for high-volume machinery, they add a layer of complexity that makes operating and maintaining machines in a sawmill more expensive. At Pinnacle SA, we believe that if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. We design the most cost-effective solution to get the job done.

 We design our machinery to operate in remote locations so that you can train operators easily and maintain machines without needing highly specialised and custom made parts. Training your operators is as easy as teaching them to push a button.

Pinnacle SA supports its customers.

Log Scanner and Sorter

Allows for accurate scanning of a sawmill or lumber yard log intake or throughput. The Log Scanner and Sorter checks the straightness of a specific piece of material and then sorts it accordingly.

Screw Log Elevator and Singulator

Aligns, unscrambles, singulates and elevates logs from Logdeck to machine.

Stepfeeder

Aligns, unscrambles, singulates and elevates logs from Logdeck to machine.

New Era Resaw

Primary breakdown saw with fast-loading V-chain feeds logs directly onto the sharp chain infeed. Sideboards held up on the outfeed with side pressure rollers are deposited behind the headrig or further on as required.

New Era Board Edger/ Edger Light

Robust machines – perfect for any recovery line. The precision machined spacers allow for high and continuous accuracy.

Horizontal Finger Joiner

The Pinnacle Horizontal Finger Joiner cuts finger joins into the end of a piece of material before automatically joining them together.

Trim Saw

The Pinnacle Trim Saw cuts the ends of lumber into specific lengths and at specific angles. The Trim Saw is an excellent cross-cut when many same-length pieces are needed out of longer lengths.

Pallet Stringer

Cuts notches into the ends of wood so that the wood can be assembled into a pallet. The Pinnacle Pallet Stringer Machine merges into Pusher Crosscut and a Nailing Station.

Pusher Crosscut

Ideal for cutting materials to length, mainly on wood across the grain. The cutting edge of each tooth is angled in an alternating pattern. This design allows each tooth to act akin to a knife edge to slice through the wood smoothly in contrast to a rip saw, which tears along the grain. A high-speed, accurate saw that increases production throughput.

Stacker

The Pinnacle Stacker receives cut lumber and stacks it neatly. This is achieved through the uniformity of the stack and stickers, which in turn maximizes kiln capacity.

Tilt Hoist De-Stacker

The Pinnacle Tilt Hoist Destacker automates the feed process of a stack of timber into a line for further processing. A simple yet effective solution to integrate continuous timber feed into a system.

Rotary Block Saw

The Pinnacle Block Saw is a single bladed, carousel-style saw, specifically intended to increase piece count output for stringer and block pallet manufacturing. The Block Saw is used to cut timber into cuboid shapes.

New Era Multirip/Gang Saw

Secondary saw – processes raw logs into wood by cutting the round edges and removing bark and small boughs Capable of sawing a cant into multiple board while maintaining accuracy and precision of the boards produced.

Why do we call it New Era?

The New Era design philosophy was born from a need to step back from the sawmill manufacturing industry’s direction. The prevailing design philosophy maximises profit instead of customer satisfaction. Companies try to lock their customers into a long-term relationship by selling a sawmill that only the OEM can service because the parts are highly customised or patented.

This approach might work well in developed economies where parts are easy to source, but a different approach is necessary in emerging markets. For emerging markets, you’d want to use parts that are easy to source. You want to build machines that are easy to operate and maintain because highly specialised labour isn’t available.

That’s why the New Era matters. We believe that by employing simple design principles we will help change the entire industry. This might be a bold claim, but it’s derived from straightforward logic that’s easy to follow.
