Valon Kone (VK) is internationally operating manufacturer of rotor debarkers, and has been a pioneer in debarking since the 1940s. Valon Kone has grown from a small machine shop into the world’s leading supplier of debarkers. VK can provide a solution for any industrial debarking problem in cases where the log can be fed in to a debarking line one by one.
Specialisation in rotor debarking technology and continuous investment in research and development have led to Valon Kone’s extensive product range, which includes machine models specifically designed for different wood species and local debarking circumstances around the world. An extensive global sales and service network also ensures that the customer receives the best possible support for each project from the beginning and right throughout the entire life cycle of a debarker.
Behind VK brand’s success is a committed and skilled workforce and continuous investments in quality, research and development and modern manufacturing technology. The company has come a long way over the last sixty years. This development can be seen in the fact that the first VK machines weighed 1,500 lbs and debarked 65 feet per minute. Today machines weigh up to 163,000 lbs and debark at 500 feet per minute.
