February 11, 2022 | 4:43 pm CST

Tauberbischofsheim, Germany -- The Weinig Group has been selected to provide a full range of equipment for the HolzBauWerk Schwarzwald company, which has built what it calls one of the most modern digitized wood processing plants for the production of cross-laminated timber. The plant is located in Germany’s Black Forest region.

From quality sorting of the sawn timber to the finished CLT elements and the corresponding central system control technology, the Weinig Group is supplying everything as a single source in this project: all automation components, planers, cross-cut saws, finger jointing lines, edge-gluing machines for longitudinal and cross-layers, plus the surface press.
