Automatic testing laboratory
The system is used for perpendicular tensile strength testing of MDF, HDF, OSB and chipboard according to EN319 as well as for surface soundness testing according to EN311.
A major advantage is the repeatability of the tests. In contrast to manual/ partially automated testing, the adhesive quantity and pattern, curing time, contact pressure and centering are reproducible. It can be used around the clock, 7 days a week and the results can be immediately transferred to production. It is easy to operate and can also be operated by staff from outside the laboratory. An increased production speed, the reduction of glue in the production process, as well as a reduced reject rate lead to a short payback period for the test laboratory.
Destructive as well as non- destructive tests can be imaged. These are processed, among other things, with a test station for perpendicular tensile strength test and surface soundness test, optional a raw density profile measurement system, microwave measurement system and OSB board adhesive station.

Automatic bending Test Machine BTM
The system is used for automated bending fracture testing of MDF, HDF, OSB and Chipboard, according to EN310 / ASTM D1037 / JIS A5908.
A big advantage is the repeatability of the tests, as well as the time relief of the laboratory. The feeding and measuring of the test specimens, the adjustment of the support distances and the entire test procedure are fully automated. The system can be used around the clock, 7 days a week, and the results can be immediately transfered to production. It is easy to operate and can also be operated by non-laboratory personnel. A reduced number of rejects as well as the relief of the laboratory lead to a short amortization period.
Only the cut test specimens have to be placed in the feeding magazine and the required standard has to be entered, the rest runs automatically.
Automatic laminate cutting machine
The machine is used for trimming and strip cutting of laminates in production.
The advantage over existing machines is the automatic adjustment of the 5 cutting tracks within 15 seconds. In addition, a separate cutter head was developed, which considerably simplifies the changing of the cutting edges. The fast adjustment of the cutting track during production by a highly dynamic linear motor system in combination with a mechanical coupling allows a drastic reduction of scrap.
Automatic laminate stacking
The first fully automatic solution for stacking laminate blanks.
The system is used for stacking laminate blanks, which are cut to length directly from a continous roll. The vacuum conveyor belt, which we developed especially for this application, takes the blanks and conveys them to the pallet on wich they are stacked. In order to be able to remove the completely stacked pallet, two stacking levels were built, between wich switching takes place.
We developed and patented our own vacuum conveyor belt, in which self- closing valves were integrated directly into the belt.
This automatically closes unoccupied suction pockets in order to increase the suction capacity of the suction pockets in use. This makes it possible to convey large-area elements (paper, laminate, cardboard, thin sheet, etc.) without loss of vacuum suction power.
