Raute’s latest panel repairing solutions have resulted in orders for panel repair stations and a panel repairing line to be delivered to two customers in North America. The ordered machinery and equipment will be delivered by the end of 2021.
The equipment will be engineered and manufactured mainly in Raute’s production unit in Nastola, Finland. Some work will also take place in Raute’s unit in Vancouver, Can. The machine vision technology for controlling panel repairing will be delivered from Raute’s unit in Kajaani, Finland.
The orders come following Raute’s launch of a new panel repair station and next-generation panel repairing line. Automatic panel repairing increases the cost efficiency of plywood production, ensuring that the final quality of the panels is more uniform and makes it easier to control the various panel grades, according to Raute.
“We have developed and launched new panel repairing solutions to respond to the needs of various customers in the plywood industry,” says Tapani Kiiski, President and CEO of Raute Corp. “Our latest products are an excellent continuation of Raute’s panel repairing technology offering, and they represent a breakthrough in new technology.
“Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we launched one product virtually just a few months ago. In connection with the launch of our panel repairing solutions, we received nearly simultaneous orders from two customers in North America.”
