Capacity

Glulam: (7.5 hours): 60 m³ - 180 m³ (2000 ft³ - 6000 ft³)
CLT: (7.5 hours): 30 m³ - 50 m³ (1000 ft³ - 1700 ft³)


Combi press

The efficient high frequency production line with its special designed lay-up system allows the manufacturing of two different product types in one and the same system; glulam and CLT.
This enables an extended product range and increased capacity without requiring additional space.
The advantages of using high frequency curing are short pressing cycles and increased capacity - the ideal line for a just-in-time production.

The illustrated Combi press line handles up to 27 meters long elements and we custom design every line to the specific demands of the customer.

Description

The following presents three specific details of the press plant:

Combi_image_1

When manufacturing glulam beams, the glue is applied from above. The glued lamellas are cross conveyed one by one, turned 90º, joined and fixated in a charge. Following this, the charge is loaded onto a belt conveyor which feeds it into the press.

When manufacturing CLT elements, the glue is applied to the side of the longitudinal lamellas. The lamellas are cross conveyed to a temporary collection unit, where they are joined together and lifted onto a belt conveyor for adding more layers.

A special designed glue trolley applies glue on top of the longitudinal lamellas and then the cross lamellas are positioned by means of a vacuum lift installed on the glue trolley.

After gluing, the CLT element can be completed with a second layer of longitudinal lamellas, or the process is repeated until the desired number of layers has been reached.

The completed product charge is fed into the high frequency press where it is pressed from the side and the top and the HF energy is added for a rapid curing.
