Mayr-Melnhof Holz invests in new pressing system for glulam components

Mayr-Melnhof Holz invests in a fully automated modern high-frequency press for the production of glulam standard components at its Olsberg site in Germany.

With the new pressing system, Olsberg is making a qualitative leap in the automated processing of production orders and is at the cutting edge of technology to provide the straight components required for the glulam standard business.

The high-frequency plant presses glulam elements with maximum dimensions of 29 cm x 130 cm x 24.20 m and replaces two hydraulic presses that were in need of repair. The space-saving implementation made it possible to additionally integrate a constructive press bed for glulam up to 25 m in length into the production process.

As a system provider, ABF was commissioned to integrate the new press in terms of control technology. The focus was on the communication of the high-frequency press with the ERP system, the glue application and the conveyor lines as well as the control of the fully automatic labeling of the pressed glulam bars and the automatic collection of production data to increase productivity.

The investment project is part of the Mayr-Melnhof Holz Group's optimization, automation and digitalization strategy.
