Double glulam line to Theurl Holzindustrie
The goal of Theurl was clear: an expansion of the glulam production while preserving as many plant components as possible. Last year already, the East Tyroleans had renewed several components of the line for higher throughputs. Now it was necessary to adapt the core piece - the glulam press - to the planned production volume. After an intensive exploratory process, Theurl once again opted for the high-frequency technology of the Danish engineering company Kallesoe Machinery in Lem.
In concrete terms, Theurl ordered two LHF presses mounted on top of each other. "This allowed us to make the best use of the space available in existing production facilities," Factory Manager Hannes Ganner explains this decision. From the gluing station - optimized at a feed speed of 350 m/min - the lamellas enter one of the two lay-up units depending on the cycle.
Faster than planned
The first press was commissioned on 27 March - only 15 days after the start of the renovation work. Thus Kallesoe lay a week ahead of the agreed schedule. "The Danes were really very well prepared and are one of our most competent partners in terms of mechanical engineering," explains a satisfied Stefan Theurl.
