Koskisen, a wood processing company based in Järvelä, Finland has decided to invest in a new Raute Veneer Peeling Line R3.
The spindle-less R3-Series peeling line will be used for peeling the cores after the existing peeling lines all the way down to 30mm core diameter.
With the investment, Koskisen is looking for increasing their plywood mill raw material utilisation and to optimise veneer production overall productivity. Additionally, with the Raute MillSIGHTS data gathering system, the line will be integrated into Koskisen’ digital management platform. The new line is reportedly fully electric and will run unmanned.
“As the new line is fully automated, it is expected to be very cost-efficient. Due to its energy efficiency, the line has also a low carbon footprint,” said Kimmo Ahonen, project manager of Koskisen.
Prior to this order, Koskisen already has five veneer peeling lines delivered by Raute. This is the first Raute R3-Series technology sales to Finland.
The new line will be delivered in Järvelä in August 2023.
