This article demonstrates the solution of the basic problem of dynamic balancing of saw modules of the wood processing equipment of a new type, made according to the scheme of a cranked saw, where the executive elements (blades) perform a flat rotational and simultaneously progressive motion. The topic of the article refers to the fundamental bases of engineering sciences, namely to the development of fundamentally new technical solutions in the field of creating sawing machines, multiplying the advantages and eliminating the disadvantages of the existing sawmill equipment with reciprocating motion of the saw frame. The material stated in the present article contributes to the solution of applied problems as applied to the needs of specific similar issues of engineering, inventive and other nature and possibly to the creation of wood-processing production on the basis of the presented equipment.
