Reducing the amount of loose wood dust and the risk of sparks which could eventually lead to fires, is an increasing concern for professional woodworkers.
Wood briquette presses currently being installed in several woodworking businesses—from cabinet shops to millworks and joineries—are increasing wood shop safety for both employees and their facilities, by reducing the amount of loose wood dust and the risk of sparks which could eventually lead to fires.

Additionally, the wood briquettes the briquette presses produce have a heat value comparable to that of brown coal! And the wood briquettes can be created from a wide variety of wood types, including hardwoods, softwoods, particleboard, plywood, and MDF–while mixing wood chips with shavings and sawdusts makes the most compact and efficient briquettes, according to the experts from WEIMA–a worldwide leader in the art of shredding and briquetting.
Specifically, WEIMA presses can create a volume reduction of up to 90%, resulting in simplified material handling, transport, and storage ability with disposal costs decreased significantly, if not all together, when the material is burned and used as a heat source. Depending on the amount of a shop’s waste volume and material mixture, WEIMA has a press to fit every professional woodworker’s needs.
