In order to guarantee speedy delivery times, we produce semi-finished products that are kept in stock. These “mother panels” are manufactured throughout the year in constant quantities at different lengths. The mother panels are produced in batches of 18 and 28 millimetre thickness.
We produce our standard mother panels in order to maintain a consistant level of stock on our production lines which has been developed in house. The packs of unprocessed wood are placed the in-feed to the planer. After the timber has been cut into strips (lamells), the graders located at either side of the roller belt, sort out B-choice strips.
Measuring moisture levels
The planer carries out moisture level measurements in each full pack of unprocessed wood at three different locations to establish if the unprocessed wood is suitable for processing.
