Examples of implementations.
EDGE GLUED PANEL
Edge gluing press line deliveries we have made over a hundred around the World.
Most deliveries have been for manufacturing edge glued panels from different types of wood, but many deliveries have also been to component production in door- and window factories.
Pinomatic has been mechanising different sizes production lines for glulam production and has extensive knowledge and experience of the lines.
For glulam pressing lines, we deliver equipment in the front of the press for the grading of lamellas and preparing the lamella batches, which can be done using the formulas made by the Pinomatic IPC (Pinomatic Integrated Production line Control). At the end of the pressing line, there are devices for the separating and stacking of the glulam beams.
The glulam beams can be trimmed to lengths on the glulam planing line. After the planing, the quality of the glulam is checked and they can be guided to a repairing station, if needed. At the end of the line, the glulam beams are stacked and packaged.
Pinomatic can offer mechanisation solutions tailored for CLT producton.
According to the destination and the needs, the actual lamination of the elements can be completed with surface polishing and the cutting of openings and, in relation to complete building elements, with the installation of insulation material, doors and windows. The boards needed in the elements can be finger-joined and planed at the same factory.
For moulding-, panel- and parquet factories we have made hundreds of projects around the World.
We can deliver finishing lines for both wide and narrow pieces.
In the largest delivered lines the pieces are surface treated three times and move over 230 meters along the line.
We deliver mechanisation solutions also for MDF production.
Pallets, boxes and drums
Pinomatic has many production line solutions tailored especially for pallet industry.
In the gripping technology we have solutions for wane timber, as well as mechanical gripper for stacks where the upper surface is not even.
Pinomatic stackers and de-stackers can be used both in the infeed of components to the pallet machines, as well as at the end of the machines, stacking ready made pallets.
We have infeed solutions for feeding directly to pallet machines cassettes. Pinomatic has developed also camera system which detects the wane side of the boards and turns them so that boards are infed to cassettes on the right position. We can handle side board, deck board and bottom board, as well as blocks.
There are different stacker models available according to the needs of the customers, for example according to the amount of the stack stations.
Pinomatic can offer the plywood industry a variety of conveyor and mechanisation solutions, as well as stacking and de-stacking equipment.
In the stackers is utilized vacuum technology, for example. These solutions provide flexibility and cost-efficiency in production, as one vacuum stacker is able to stack a number of grades and dimensions at the same time, such as finished plywood for customer-specific stacks. In the stackers that we have delivered, has been as many as 15 stack stations side by side. Pinomatic stacking and destacking equipment is available in many different models. Nearly 400 stackers have been delivered to different stages of production in the wood industry. The Pinomatic 2400 and 3400 models of stackers are especially suitable for plywood production.
As an example of other mechanisation solutions can be mentioned bundle turning device, which can be employed at different stages of the production of plywood, to turn veneer bundles or plywood bundles. Bundles are brought to the turning device as well as received from the device on the same side of the device, thus meaning that the device takes up minimal space.
Pinomatic can offer the LVL industry a variety of conveyor and mechanisation solutions, as well as stacking and de-stacking equipment.
In the stackers is utilized vacuum technology, for example.
Lifting device that is deigned for LVL production can handle LVL beams which length is max. 13 m and weight max. 500 kg. This equipment is suitable also to low spaces.
PINOMATIC IPC (INTEGRATED PRODUCTION LINE CONTROL)
Prominent characteristics of Pinomatic deliveries has always been the high level of automation and ease of use of the equipment. Pinomatic IPC (Pinomatic Integrated Production line Control), developed by Pinomatic, provides a significant increase in line utilization thanks to centralized control. Making the settings takes less time, as they can be done from one place. Also, possible disturbances can be quickly located and eliminated, without using the time for searching for the reason of the disturbance. Also, woodworking machines and other equipment delivered by other machine manufacturers can be connected to the IPC system. New machines and equipment usually have the ability for this control feature already built-in, without exception.
Formulas for the different products
For each product produced on the line, production plan can be created and saved in an Excel form, for example, to a file, where the production information is retrieved. When the data is retrieved by the IPC control system, it becomes a formula, according to which the line machines are controlled.
The formula includes, for example, conveyor speeds, machine and equipment settings, as well as other technical settings. When the product that is produced on the line changes, the line’s technical settings can easily be adjusted just by changing the formula file, from one terminal. The production plan can still be modified from the IPC control system. Also, machine settings can be checked and even changed during the drive. When the production part is at the end, it can be acknowledged as a readymade and it can be included with real production output, as well as with waste and quality information. In the same system can be added possible malfunctions, jams, alarms, and the information of the safety elements.
The most significant benefit that the IPC control system can offer is the rapidity of settings and the fact that a new product can enter the line immediately as soon as a new formula has been introduced. This is particularly useful for long lines, such as painting lines. Pinomatic has delivered the IPC control systems also for glulam lines, cutting lines, planing lines as well as on element lines, for example.
The IPC control system can be also included with different kind of statistics and production reports including, for example, waste, run metres, the number of pieces, m3, drive speeds, etc. The features can be implemented according to the needs of the customer. With the help of the IPC control system, the line support can be increased to also include the utilization rate of the machines and the controlling of the machines condition.

Edge gluing presses
SmartPress is designed for small and medium size enterprises and is suitable also for smaller production series. The quality of edge-glued panels is still completely equal to that of panels which have been made with our high efficiency presses.
SMARTPRESS is a continuously working friction press. Due to the heating process, a good glue joint is achieved in as little as three minutes during the through-feed time.
The unit’s frame is a strong friction press which is equipped with a hot plate construction. It is suitable for both hardwood and softwood.
InnovaPress operation is continuous. On the front end of the press, the “warm part”, the glue, is activated quickly, which enables an essential shortening of the time taken in pressing. At the rear end of the press there is a cooling area.
The warm treatment is the equivalent of the technique used by the warm platen press but the operating properties of the friction press – such as a minimised need of sanding on panels and its suitability as an inline machine in the continuous panel process line – still exist.
Gluing is performed by the Innova patented gluing applicator, which allows a gluing speed of 300m per minute. The press can also be equipped with a comb or sprayer gluing applicator.
The press settings are very simple to set thanks to the high automation level.
CrossPress is a newest part of Pinomatic press family. CrossPress is designed for CLT production.
Our long experience in press manufacturing and our engineering department’s innovative solutions are combined in this equipment. Delivery entity includes also conveyors and glue spreading between the layers.
