The company Arolla Lda invested in a plant for the production of standard CLT elements with widths of 120 and 125 cm and produces mainly for its own projects and for the local market. Arolla specializes in the construction of ready-to-move solid wood buildings, the implementation of the projects is supported by the integrated architecture and engineering office. The raw material required is supplied by local sawmills, but also imported from Europe.
The production facility was integrated into an existing building in the Setubal industrial area. The hall with an area of a little more than 11.000 m² was modernized within a very short time and adapted to the specified production conditions. The format of the cross laminated timber elements is optimized to a maximum of 16 m x 1.25 m x 0.6 m. A CNC machining center is also installed in the fully automated production process in order to process finished pressed and pre-profiled CLT elements. This first turnkey CLT line in Portugal specializes in the production of high quality CLT with visible surfaces.
The entire CLT production system is controlled and monitored by the X-Lam Manager developed by Ledinek. The X-Lam Manager offers a PC-based host computer system for production management, production flow control and visualization, statistics, instant information and tools for production analysis
