PRINZ saw chains, a cut above the rest!

Scraper Chains for lumber packages and pallets

PRINZ scraper chains are very successful in cutting lumber packages and wood used for producing pallets as they assure a smooth and accurate cutting finish of ±1mm (.040“).PRINZ scraper chains are available in all types and sizes and suit almost all common chainsaws. Carbide tipped chains are giving amazing results to ensure extended chain life and to cut hard materials such as paper rolls in the paper and recycling industries.

Chipper Chains to process logs

PRINZ chipper chains are perfectly suited to cut logs easily and rapidly. The high level of in-house production and use of new materials guarantee a maximum cutting capacity while minimizing sharpening costs. With a special sharpening, PRINZ chipper chains are ideally suited to cut logs horizontally. Carbide tipped chains are ideal for cutting frozen and dirty wood.


Saw Chains to cut plastic

PRINZ PLASTICUT has been developed to cut a variety of plastics. Its distinguishing feature is its special tooth geometry, which also allows it to cut large plastic pipes.


Carbide Tipped Chains for soft stone

PRINZ has developed the CARBIDE CUT chain range to cut soft stone. These chains are ideally suited to cut tiles, bricks, aerated concrete and sandstone. They are frequently used for window and door cutouts and have been optimized for jobs in construction and renovation (e.g. eliminating wall moisture).


Saw Chains for concrete and natural stone



There is also a range of tools ideal for maintenance and chain repair, including both manual and automatic Chain Sharpeners and a Rivet Breaking & Riveting machine.

Accolades for Acora Apprentice

Congratulations to Jacob Topping for being the Runner Up in the 2022 Regional School Based Apprentice of the Year Awards last week in Wollongong.

Jacob R/Up Apprentice of the Year

At Acora we would like to show our support for Jacob Topping who has been a School Based Apprentice with our business since March 2020 in the Fitting & Machining Trade. Jacob is starting his 3rd year of his SBA and proving to be a valued member of our staff and will continue his trade qualifications with Acora once he finishes high school. Our business consists of 14 Tradesman, 5 Professionals and 7 Apprentices and we have strong beliefs in training and developing our employees to excel in the Fabrication and Manufacturing industry. We are a diverse company but our work mainly consists of Sawmill Equipment Fabrication that is specially designed, manufactured and installed by our team across Australia and New Zealand. Acora has been in business for 55 years and we are one of the main employers in our small home town of Eden on the Far South Coast of NSW. In one of our most technically skilled trades, Jacob has shown great maturity and capability in his role with Fitting and Machining. Our machining workshop has a variety of machines and technology that range from ‘old school’ equipment to state of the art CNC machinery, Jacob has excelled in the use and application of all of these machines. Accuracy and precision is key to this trade and Jacob shows patience and concentration when working with allocated projects in our machine shop. He will always ask first rather than fix later. Jacob brings to the workshop a fresh view on problem solving and how to best set up and complete a job efficiently, effectively and accurately. In our industry these attributes are critical to running a successful business. He is always invigorated after his block at TAFE in Wagga and applies his learnings to the workshop environment and is happy to update our ‘mature’ workers on current techniques he has learnt in the classroom. For his age, Jacob has proven that he can adapt easily to our ever changing environment and he is always willing to step outside his comfort zone to learn more about our business and the industry. His rapport with his team members is to be commended for a young man of his age, and he is confident and willing to contribute in any group setting.
