Hot press line

With this plant, you will have an economically viable production line ideal for the production laminated boards and panels.



(7.5 hours): 5 m3 - 40 m3 (250 m2 - 2000 m2) 

Hot press line

The hot-water or hot-oil press line, type LV from Kallesoe Machinery is an efficient production plant ideal for making laminated boards such as furniture boards, solid wood panels, cabinet boards and solid timber worktops.

The line will typically as illustrated above include a glue applicator with lay-up unit and feeding table, the press and an outlet conveyor.


The following presents three specific details of the press plant, details that ensures the best and fastest glue application, loading and pressing of the wood.

Billede 1 Limpaafoering

The lamellas are laid-up on the feeding table in front of the glue applicator in the desired order.

The glue is applied to the lamellas on one side (edge) by a vertical glue roller or by a glue nozzle.

Depending on the required capacity the glue system can run through lamellas up to 3 m/sec.

Billede 2 Oplaegning

After the glue application the lamellas are led on, cross led and straightened.

A custom-designed lamella stop ensures that the lamellas do not rebound and jam in the process. This allows the lamellas to be cross led quickly and effi ciently, in one gliding movement.

When a complete row of lamellas has been cross led they are straightened and led into the feeding table, i.e. the belt conveyor in front of the press. Only when the feeding table is full the lamellas are led into the press.

Billede 3 Lv 2

The Kallesoe hot press type LV is a very efficient press combining high performance with easy and logical operation. Because of the sturdy and strong built design the press maintains low product tolerances during its entire life time.
The press is normally heated by hot water delivered from an external works supply or obtained by electric heating cartridges built into the plates. The water circulates through press plates with labyrinth design, which gives a uniform distribution of temperature to the product surfaces.
Where higher temperatures are required, the press can optionally be heated by using thermo oil.


The illustration shows the possible minimum and maximum dimensions of the final product, but special customer demands can be implemented.
