One Machine Can Handle All Your Wood Processing Needs.

  • IEM's Debarker is designed based on years of research and field testing.  Our goal was to manufacture a debarker that offers superior technology.  It is capable of handling all wood diets; it is backed by a team of experts and manufactured to your needs.  Our Debarkers are delivered on time, and made to perform reliably to high standards.

    IEM's Debarker is summed up in two words: power and versatility.  It can handle conventional pulp and sawmill logs, as well as extreme wood-rich diets.  Green bark, stringy bark, long stems and short stems, and more unconventional and residual fiber sources can be accommodated.  Our IEM Debarker is capable of handling stems up to 12 meters in length and can handle stems as small as 30 mm in diameter.  The debarking is clean, with remarkably little white wood loss, and our IEM processors are capable of handling landfill mining.  Our low-cost, low-maintenance debarkers can efficiently remove bark even in frozen conditions.  No de-icing is required.  The live floor, open-bottom design means that bark and dirt are disposed of immediately.  Our debarkers are also capable of cleaning raw stumps for biomass power production.

    IEM’s Debarkers are custom manufactured to your needs by teams of expert staff, all of whom are driven by our primary philosophy:  phenomenal customer service.  When you contact us for your IEM Debarker, you'll collaborate with our associates, who possess vast experience and rich knowledge in the industry and in debarkers.  Our project manager will ask you specific questions designed to minimize the time is takes to get the debarker to your site quickly. We also keep in steady contact with you throughout the process so that if there are any concerns or unique considerations that come up, we are aware of them and can adjust the project to suit your requirements.

    Once your debarker moves into fabrication, our facility is designed to allow your production team to test it thoroughly.  Your IEM Debarker will be checked for fit and finish, and tested to ensure that it is able to withstand the unique conditions of your site.  Throughout this process, your project manager is involved so that you are kept informed as to the status of your debarker.

    When your IEM Debarker leaves our facility and is installed on your site, IEM delivers on our promise to provide unparalleled customer service.  Whether you require new additions to your order, design assistance for a new project, or just have a question or concern, your project manager is always available.

    When you are ready to begin work on your debarker, you can trust that we will bring our considerable experience to every stage of the process, from concept to completion and beyond.  Whether your project is small or large, IEM can accommodate you.  We are large enough to handle high-volume orders, yet small enough to offer extensive service and support.

    We look forward to working together on your IEM Debarker.
