Expanded Lumber Ripping Capabilities

Baillie Lumber has expanded its ripping capabilities allowing for the development of higher volumes and more customer specific solutions of full-to-width custom ripped strips. The ripped hardwood program spans across Baillie Lumber’s entire specie lines, grades, thicknesses and lengths available. Baillie Lumber’s hardwood ripping products are offered in three ways, including a custom two edge ripping program, which consists of custom grade solutions designed to a customer’s specific requirements. These special grades decrease waste and maximize the amount of usable surface area per load, says the company. The second is a random width parallel edged program, which can prove to be a more productive alternative to traditional straight line ripped one edge lumber, offering flexibility and choice of edge in the manufacturing process. A third offering is ripping as a service where Baillie Lumber will rip a load of lumber to a specific cut bill, supplementing a customer’s own rough mill capabilities with Baillie’s ripping equipment, says the company.
