|This time we have a lot of new things here at LIGNA. First of all, we have the new peeling line which provides with better raw material recovery and also improved working safety than the previous ones. The new lathe peels blocks into high quality veneer with and without spindles and leaving only 25 mm core. Peeling solution is electric meaning less energy usage and accurate control of all movements. Integrated green veneer composer ensures maximum full sheet recovery and efficient drying as random handling is eliminated.
Then we have the new drying line developed to achieve increased drying capacity with decreased amount of energy consumption. Pitch build up is eliminated by make-up air preheating. The next big thing is the grading solution that combines Metriguard and Mecano technologies so that visual quality, moisture content and veneer density can be analyzed at the same time. That means more accurate grading result and savings in raw material.
