Complete CLT production solutions

1st CLT production plant in Russia for Segezha Group

The Segezha Group from Russia has invested in a complete CLT production facility to expand its mass timber production capacity. The company’s new facility - Sokol CLT will produce CLT panels in a wide  range of sizes and surface finishes. The production line is being installed in a completely renovated existing facility near Vologda.

The line integrates 2 newly developed Z-Press to produce superior longitudinal and cross orientated edge-glued panels, next to Ledinek’s standard machines like the X-Cut, Kontizink, Multiplan and X-Press. The maximum size of the CLT panels the factory will produce is 16 m x 3,5 m x 0,36 m. The panels have the option to be length or cross sanded on both sides for an enhanced visual finish. A state-of-the-art CNC joinery machine is used to mill and cut the ready pressed and sanded CLT elements. This will be the first complete turnkey CLT line delivered to Russia.

The entire CLT production line is controlled with the X-Lam Manager, a PC-based master computer system developed by Ledinek Engineering that provides production management, production flow control and visualization, statistics, real-time information and production analysis tools.
