Raute has announced that they have sold three units of Plywood Lay-up Line R3 three months into 2022, with two units to a customer in Java, Indonesia, and another unit to New Zealand. The delivery of the equipment will take place in Q4 2022.
“With the rising glue cost around the world, producers are now looking to minimise glue consumption for better profits in their plywood business. Raute has developed the perfect solution to tackle this specific issue with the Plywood Lay-up Line R3,” said Shawn Cheo, president of Raute Singapore.
“The one-sided gluing technology used in this efficient line ensures optimum glue and labor savings, resulting in fast payback time. We have already booked three orders for the Plywood Lay-up Line R3 two months into the year, and many more in the pipeline with customers all around Asia.”
Raute’s Plywood Lay-up Line R3 reportedly saves 25% of glue consumption compared to traditional roller gluing. The machines are automatically washed regularly for a better work environment and lower maintenance need, and the wash water is reused in mixing glue. The reduction in chemical use makes the process and end-product more environmentally and end-user friendly.
