Ledinek has delivered a third of the whole equipment for Stora Enso’s new and fourth cross-laminated timber (CLT) line in Ždirec, Czeck Republic.

According to Ledinek, the plant consists of the infeed equipment, which is the first part of mechanisation, and delivers wood to their machines for cutting out the defects using Ledinek’s X-CUT S400, and for finger jointing using the Kontizink H 5000.

The second part of the mechanisation belongs to the company’s planer Superplan 4V-S250, and delivers wood to the machine and after the planer to the press for single-layer panel production.

Both the mechanical and electrical installation were completed according to schedule. Ledinek thus started test production on time, which was a milestone for both Stora Enso and Ledinek teams.

This will be followed by the optimisation of production and the training of the operators at the plant.

Ledinek has also delivered to Stora Enso two feeding machines Powerfeed 70-S350 and the Superplan 6VR-S350 planing machine for their sorting line. The equipment is in the commissioning and testing phase.

Despite challenges such as the pandemic and the extended delivery time for material, Ledinek reported that the project is progressing well.

“As in many previous projects, Ledinek has once again demonstrated its competence and reliability in the supply of plant-areas for our CLT plant in Zdirec,” commented Herbert Jöbstl, head of operations, wood product, Ledinek.

The Ledinek team wishes Stora Enso all the best with their new investment.
