Three peeling lines have been installed and put into operation: Lur 17-14 produced by JSC Proletarskaya svoboda in Yaroslavl. Belt-type conveyors to remove veneer scraps from peeling machines to the new German woodchipper Vecoplan and to remove industrial chips to the new automated bunker have been replaced.
Drier Grenzebach for veneer drying and boiler station Wiesloch (Germany) as well as dryer SRGM-40 and power generator FT-7 (Russia) have been put into operation: all machines use wood waste from plywood production.
Two Japanese lines Hashimoto with automatic removal of waste to the German woodchipper BRUKS have been installed and put into operation; this ensures surfacing and jointing of lump veneer into full-scale veneer.
The plywood and the ply-curve section has been transformed. Two twenty-plate presses for plywood gluing produced by Volev (Ukraine) have been reconstructed; a twenty-plate press produced by Japanese Kitagava company has also been installed and put into operation. All three presses heat boards using thermal oil from German boiler station Weisloch.
For cutting plywood from four sides, the cutting line produced by Proletarskaya svoboda (Russia) has been installed. Plywood is sanded on the new Italian sanding line IMEAS with six sanding shafts, which ensures the ideal quality of sanding.
Sanding dust is no longer a useless waste, as two UBM presses (Lithuania) have been installed to produce briquettes from dust without any binders for export. Domestic customers can assess the high heat output and the maximum burning time of the new product already now.
