WOOD PRO GLULAM - our solution for timber glulam production
Laser projection systems support you in all manual work steps that occur in the production and processing of glulam parts and components that are not fully automatically produced or standardized. These can be small objects, such as stairs, which are manufactured in a workshop, as well as large beams and components for commercial, industrial, agricultural or residential buildings, warehouses, sports halls, swimming pools or shopping centres.
Templates of laser lines assist you in production of engineered beams in different shapes and sizes. For straight glulam beams you can use the projected outlines as a guide when stacking the laminates before pressing. You may also show the areas for use of boards with different strength-grading in combined/unbalanced beams. And you can check that visible blemishes such as knotholes are not within the final shape.
For curved elements you may show the position of the fixed and moving clamps of the glulam press - as small as a doorway arch or as large as a roof truss member or bridge arch. Laser projectors can be joined together to cover virtually unlimited lengths and widths of laminated beam contours.
After pressing, planing, and cutting to length, you can place the element correctly on the machining center by means of laser projection. To avoid errors, check the final outline of the object before trimming, the position of drillholes for bolts or dowels and areas to be milled for joints, slotted-in connecting plates (glulam truss), framing anchors or other purposes. Finally you can display the location of steel or fibre reinforcements for assembly.
