Ledinek is again relied on by its long-standing customer Moelven Edanesågen AB from Sweden. The company will now manufacture and deliver a new planer line for exterior elements for Moelven Edanesågen AB that is the part of the Norwegian-Swedish Moelven Group, which produces wood elements and systems for the construction sector. As part of a major investment at the Edane site in Sweden, a new production line for planning and sorting will also be built.
Ledinek who has been manufacturing the fastest planning machines for 25 years is also chosen as a strategic partner for this project. The company has been chosen as the worthy strategic partner for its ability to provide all key equipment from its own production along with the entire design, implementation and optimisation process. The new line will replace the two older lines at this site and will take over the production program of the adjacent site. The products from this line will go to the Norwegian and Swedish markets. The implemented new line will allow faster flexibility and greater capacity for a variety of products. It will also enable the production of high volumes of products at lower cost. The planned line will be the most powerful line for this particular production line for this type of product once it is operational.
Ledinek who has its long-standing experience as the producer of fastest planning machines have faith on the new generation of machines, called Stratoplan that allows four-sided planning and profiling of boards up to 300 mm wide. The new fourth generation Stratoplan, introduced this year, offers even greater profiling capacity for larger cross-sections of external profile elements.
High automation and integration and a new higher capacity machine will increase the productivity of the new line. The centerpiece of the line is the Stratoplan, with a machining speed of up to 400 m/min. The 10 spindles, combined with the integrated tool measuring and positioning system, allow short set-up times and rapid flexibility of the entire line. To improve efficiency in smaller cross-sections, the Splitcut machine, which allows the horizontal cutting of workpieces into thinner boards, further increases the capacity of the line.
Due to the high processing capacity of up to two boards per second, the entire line is optimised for automatic operation, including the evaluation and sorting processes. Additional processing by profiling the ends of the boards will increase the value of the products. Stacked packages will be automatically bundled and protected.
