System TM, Kallesoe and Stiles Machinery to supply technology for North American glulam facility

System TM’s Opti-Feed H-L horizontal finger-jointing line

HOMAG Group members System TM, Kallesoe Machinery and Stiles Machinery have announced that North American glue-laminated timber (glulam) producer Rosboro has chosen the three companies to deliver mass timber solutions for their glulam factory in Springfield, Oregon, US.

Brian Wells, senior vice-president of Strategic Development of Rosboro, said about their new investment: “The distributors who carry Rosboro’s flagship X-Beam stock glulam and other Rosboro Engineered Wood Products are the premier engineered wood product distributors in their markets.

“They rely on us to supply a steady stream of high-quality, cost-effective framing solutions. We are making this investment to ensure that our partners can continue to grow their successful X-Beam programs for many years to come.”

The glulam factory will utilise System TM’s feeding and finger-jointing line, that will be integrated with two Kallesoe high-efficiency radio-frequency glulam press lines. More specifically, System TM will provide their Opti-Feed H-L horizontal finger-jointer for long length workpieces. The line is also equipped with our Opti-Feed automatic feeding system.

HOMAG Group expressed excitement at partnering with Rosboro and working together to grow the North American mass timber industry.
