Yildiz Entegre manufacturers 570,000 cu metres of particle board in Akhisar each year, with a production volume of 34M sq metres. The Akhisar site relies entirely on a Sennebogen 830 Electro and an 835 special to handle more than 10,000t of wood each week.
The machines, supplied through Turkish sales and service partner Forsen, consistently achieve an unloading cycle of only 20 seconds, gaining high praise from the experienced operators.
Up to 1,500t of round logs arrive at the timber yard by truck each day. Before the material is prepared for further processing, the two machines pile the logs several metres high ready to be conveyed into the chopper.
A Sennebogen 835 M special is used primarily to unload the trucks. This mobile machine, with a reach of 18m, has a pylon structure that is elevated a 1m high. A Maxcab that can be elevated 2.7m means the operator has an ideal view of the load surface of the arriving trucks for unloading. The machine is able to unload long semi-trailers easily over the entire load surface.
The second crane operates amid gigantic mountains of timber in front of the production halls. Placed on a large concrete foundation, this stationary 830 Electro charges the chopper. The machine is powered by a 132 kW electric motor. With a reach of 17m, the 830 spans an area of over 900 sq metres, meaning it can service a large part of the timber yard.
Again, an elevating cab means the operator always has an overview of the work environment. Additional safety is offered by a camera system with two cameras and the seven-inch colour monitor.
