Products and services

Our product range consists of

  • production lines for glulam, CLT and rigmats
  • Timber presses for glulam, CLT and rigmats
  • transport and handling equipment for stacks, boards, lamellas and panels
  • storage systems and order picking warehouses for beams and panels.

All our timber presses use a hydraulic pressure system with the benefits of a low energy consumption, accurate pressure adjustment, automatic pressure control during the pressing cycle and documentation of the pressing parameters.

The glulam presses are designed for any glulam dimension, for any level of automation and for all available glue types.

The CLT- and rigmat-presses can be used for the production of panels or mats made from single layer (edge laminated) solid wood boards or by using boards / lamellas for the longitudinal and transverse layers. The press can be designed for mass production of standard sizes or for flexible production of individual sizes with fully automatic set-up.

News & Innovations

Modified CLT press for Mass Plywood Panels  MINDA developed a modified CLT press for producing mass plywood panels being an alternative to solid wood CLT.

Messrs. Freres Lumber, with headquarters in Lyons/Oregon, USA, developed the „mass plywood panel“ in association with the Oregon State University as per the specifications for „structural cross laminated timber“ given by ANSI/ APA and obtained a patent for this system.

At the beginning of this year MINDA successfully put the Timber Press X 337 into operation. This press allows the production of MPP panels up to 12 ft. x 48 ft. and up to 24 inch in thickness. 32 m³ mass plywood panels can be produced in one press cycle which lasts 50 minutes. The producer uses MUF glue. A multi-track feeding of the press is possible.
