One custom solution supplied by Redwood Plastics for sawmills is the sharp chain bed. The plastic bed (made of UHMW or nylon) replaces a metal bed and results in less wear on the chain. Lubrication requirements are reduced by up to 75%. In order to manufacture the bed, we require either a dimensioned technical drawing or a sample of the existing bed shipped to us to measure and copy into plastic and would, of course, need to know what type of sharp chain is being used.
