The wood press for high-quality fuels
The RUF wood briquette machine forms briquettes from your wood chips to enable profitable sales. The LIGNUM wood chip briquette machine range has the flexibility to process various different grain sizes of the material into briquettes of a consistently high density and quality. The LIGNUM range works with a very high level of energy efficiency thanks to our innovative RUF hydraulics. Due to its compact structure, the sawdust press is easy to incorporate into existing production processes and is suitable for 24h operation.
Advantages of our briquetting machines:
- Compact construction
- Quick installation (plug & press)
- Fully automatic 24h operation
- Long service life
Advantages of RUF briquettes:
- Increased revenues from briquettes
- No binding agents required
- CO2-neutral fuel
- Higher calorific value as a fuel than firewood
- Space-saving storage thanks to rectangular format
Pressing wood chips – creating more revenue
Thanks to the great number of wood chip machines we have sold, RUF briquettes are popular all over the world as a sustainable, high-quality fuel. A consistent length and a constant weight of the briquettes can largely be ensured, even with different bulk densities, through our highly developed system of briquette length regulation.
To be able to press wood chips, it is important that the water content of the material is below 15%.
Depending on customer requirements, we offer wood briquette machines for throughputs between 410 and 1,050 kg per hour.

“The RUF machines have been working very reliably since their commissioning. They are well-engineered and highly recommendable.”
Johann Dietl Head of CNC manufacturing at Zollner, Germany
"We are thoroughly satisfied with this equipment and are considering an expansion of its use."
David Kubis Order processing and purchasing at Alcutec, Germany
"This is the perfect solution to our handling and space problems. And the waste aluminium in the compact briquette shape – largely cleaned of the cooling lubricant emulsion – achieves a higher profit when sold on ."
Markus Weber Production Leader GFC AntriebsSysteme GmbH, Germany
"The briquetting system works completely without problems and had already amortised itself after two years.”
Stephan Diehl Executive SWG Metallverarbeitung und Montagetechnik GmbH, Germany
“We are very satisfied with the RUF Briquetting system. The investment has definitely paid off.”

"The RUF briquetting press has been generating profits since day one, thanks to its good price-performance ratio, an appropriate financing plan and the savings it makes possible."
Lena Kozmenkova Executive SIA RMP, Latvia
"Our collaboration with company RUF has started in 2002 and has been successful through all these years. RUF is not just a world known machinery producer name and the leader in briquetting technologies market. RUF is your trustful business partner as it has been a reliable and supporting partner for us during both – periods of the sales peaks and during market depression. It’s our luck to have the same business philosophy with our main business partner – the RUF company. When both of you have the same aim, you achieve it faster!"
Wayne Carracher Managing Director Recycling Technologies Group Pty Ltd Australia
"We do not have one unsatisfied customer with a RUF machine – and we have sold some 40 systems here in Australia and New Zealand. That in itself speaks volumes for the RUF company and its equipment. In our opinion the RUF briquette press cannot be matched from a performance basis. Although it is more expensive than most competing machines from a capital cost point of view, the ongoing trouble free performance and maintenance of the RUF machines put them well ahead of the opposition."
