The Question is Not "Why REDI-RIPS™?". The question is ... "Why Random Width Lumber?"

Why choose Redi-Rips over random width lumber




Additional technological improvements - cameras, lasers and computers - feed ripsaws with moving blades in our kiln dried lumber processing area. This technology assures our customer, and us, the highest possible yields. The equipment, along wtih a commitment to pursue new technologies, allows us to continue to produce quality lumber and lumber products efficiently. We continue to pass these efficiencies on to our many valued customers, along with a commitment to pursue new technologies.

Value Gain

Many people will boast about their rip yield. What they are getting is fiber recovery. If your concern is yield only, you will achieve high fiber recovery. However, in doing so you may be producing rips that are not immediately needed and not producing the rip sizes you do need. The rips you are producing are often your lowest value product (i.e narrow). The rips you are not producing are often the most valuable (i.e wide, clear, long etc.). With REDI-RIPS™ you order the widths you need. There is no more guess work, no lack of needed widths, no inventory of slow moving widths.


HMI Hardwoods LLC is a fully integrated hardwood manufacturing facility. We purchase and harvest our own timber. We produce our own lumber with our sawmills. We dry, plane, rip and package our lumber within one facility, producing approximately 2,000,000 bdft of lumber per month. This integration allows us to control quality from the stump to your door.

Yield Improvement

You receive exactly what rips you need. Ripping yields can be unpredictable. Rip yields for random width lumber are influenced by lumber tally, lumber widths, lumber quality, cutting orders, operator decisions and more. You need to know your exact yield for pricing decisions and margin calculations. With REDI-RIPS™ you don't have to concern yourself with guessing at rip yields. You receive exactly what rips you need. By combining your cutting orders with other customers' needs, (we service over 400 customers) we achieve extremely high yields. With REDI-RIPS™ the high yield cost benefits are passed on to you.
