Unique benefits of blended bed stacking & reclaiming

  • Automatic “first-in first-out“ operation (no dead areas)
  • Improved Chip Quality
  • Perfect homogenization and blending of chips
  • Low energy and maintenance costs
  • Simple and heavy duty design
  • Remote monitoring and remote reclaimer control
  • Safety first: Reduces manual handling and operator exposure to potential hazards

How it works

The FMW Blended-Bed DAX/REX system is a sophisticated material handling solution designed for efficient stacking, blending, and reclaiming of wood chips. This system combines the capabilities of two individual machines, the Stacker (DAX) and the Reclaimer (REX) in a single unit.


The wood chips are transported, via conveyor, to the Stacker (DAX). The stacker rotates 360 degress in a circular fashion to create a chip pile. 

For more information about storing capacities, please contact our team of experts.


The reclaiming of chips is carried out on a first-in first-out basis by automatically rotating 360 degress.

The rotating reclaimer is supported by the center column, and on the outer circumference by large rubber tires moving on a concrete ring. The heart of the machine is the rake which sweeps the wood chips to achieve a constant homogenized flow at the reclaiming screw, which is located along the reclaimer boom.

The specially designed reclaimer screw gently transports the wood chip to the central hopper, which is located beneath the central column in the reclaim vault.

Low Maintenance Design

The Stacker is fixed in a horizontal position, eliminating the need for hydraulic systems or rope winches. The Reclaimer uses a central support assembly that eliminates the need for a slewing ring bearing, and the Reclaim Screw, is based on a heavy-duty design.
