LVL Lay-up and Pressing Line R7 guarantees premium quality

With Raute’s Lay-up and Pressing Line R7 you finalize the LVL billets ready for machining. 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.
