On this system, the lay-up of lengthwise as well as transverse lamellas takes place manually as a starting point, but just like the rest of the production line it can be automated.
The automatic process ensures that the lamellas are laid-up in the desired number of layers before being led into the press. The lengthwise lamellas are edge glued before being lifted onto the feeding table in front of the press by means of a vacuum gantry. A glue unit (“curtain gluer”) on this feeding table applies glue between each lamella layer.
The illustrated production line is prepared for the handling of pre-glued transverse lamellas which are fed into the vacuum gantry automatically, resulting in operators made available for other purposes.
