LVL Lay-up and Pressing Line R7
Continuous lay-up and pressing ensures the highest quality
LVL Lay-up and Pressing Line R7 guarantees premium quality
The first steps of the LVL production process start from veneer scarfing followed by the lay-up. At this stage, the LVL gets its load-bearing structure, and the pressing line finalizes the product.
The LVL Lay-up and Pressing Line R7 is capable to manufacture LVL according to all international standards and all customer specifications. With our line, you can produce LVL products from the most common LVL raw materials – pines, spruce, and firs. Hardwoods can be sometimes added to increase the strength properties of an LVL product.
The Lay-up and Pressing Line R7 needs only three operators which makes this line almost fully automated and easy to use. Our process is continuous, and every production phase is intact in one line. The prepressing enables short stoppages for removing sheets or trash without harming the quality of the end product – on the contrary, this improves the quality because no defective material stays in the billet.
We use phenol glue to make the LVL products strong and glue lines permanent in any condition over the whole life span. The hot-pressed glue lines prevent the product from splitting or warping.
With Raute’s experience of over 40 years in LVL manufacturing, you can be sure to have the best solutions for your needs. In addition, the line’s hot-press is heated with the factory’s by-products, which makes the line energy efficient. This adds value to what you get by choosing Raute's lay-up and pressing line R7.
The LVL Lay-up and Pressing Line R7 guarantees the producer the highest quality LVL products with a vast variety of options concerning the production capacity, dimensions, or state of automation and add-ons.
