Introducing Wide As Possible (WAP): Because Random Widths and Lengths Can Only Result in Random Results

Let's say your cut list has a lot of variety. And let's say you've invested heavily in your ripping operation; you manage your dimensional waste and your yields are acceptable to you.  You should stick with NHLA units, right?  Maybe not.

Higher Edge Yield

Our Raimann optimizing ripsaw produces WAP boards with the least possible outside edge waste.  Using laser optics, two movable blades, and utilizing Valu-Rip IV technology, we prepare each board for future processing.  Our edge quality specifications include standards for moulder blanks as well as material for glue-up.

Exceeding your specifications through sorting and hand selection for clarity, species standards, and manufacturing quality.  For each species, WAP millwork grade lumber meets a higher standard than NHLA grade when it comes to undesirable species characteristics and clarity.

Optimizing your processes
by eliminating edge waste and defects - you get material that's sorted by width and length.  Your operator can rip from either edge of the board.  It's usable from the word go.

Streamlining your costs
by standardizing edge waste.  You're guaranteed the same rip yield factor every time.  You don't have to worry about a ripsaw operator having a bad day.

Fixed-Cost Structure and WAP Products are both delivered with our Stamp of Approval.
