High Pressure Core Composer technology gets more out of wood

HIGH PRESSURE CORE COMPOSER TECHNOLOGY GETS MORE OUT OF WOOD


Industry/Machine Engineering/Woodworking/Trade Fair


Fill introduces its innovative new process which enables substantially more efficient core layer production. Successful appearance at LIGNA 2017.
 
With the brand-new HPCC (High Pressure Core Composer) process for the production of core layers, Fill Machine Engineering has taken a major step forward in making wood processing more efficient. The new development increases raw material utilization by up to 35 percent. The new operating concept for the speedliner bandsaw series was also presented to trade visitors for the first time. With simple and intuitive operation, it makes high-tech easy. The Upper Austrian machine builder thereby provided the highlights of the international LIGNA exhibition, which took place in Hanover from 22 to 26 May, 2017.
 
Hanover/Gurten, 07 June 2017 From the new core layer production process HPCC and the fully automated spot repair unit through to the easy-to-use high-tech bandsaws – at its exhibition booth at LIGNA 2017, Fill presented a whole range of innovations. With 1,500 exhibitors from 45 countries, LIGNA is one of the most important international trade fairs for the forestry and wood industries.
 
Higher quality – higher yields
Fill’s new HPCC process has been developed for producing core layers for 3-layer boards and parquet. With this innovation, the Upper Austrian machine builder is focusing on the production of gluelam as a semi-finished product. The wet timber is pre-planed in a highly economical way, before being pressed under extreme pressure. Knots, cracks, and other defects in the raw material are fixed during the process. In combination with the speedliner bandsaws featuring the narrowest of kerfs, this increases the material yield by a total of 25 to 35 percent to up to 90 square meters per cubic meter of raw material.
 
Operation made easy
“At the latest since the dawn of the Industry 4.0 age, intuitive operability – even of complex systems – has developed into an important factor. The operator should be able to work as fast and effectively as possible with the machine in order to achieve an optimal result in minimal time. It’s about efficient communication between man and machine. This results in greater system availability and, thus, lower production costs,” explains Erwin Altendorfer, Head of the Fill Competence Center for Wood. The new operating concept for the speedliner series represents a major step forward in making wood processing and machining more efficient. Simple to handle, yet very productive.

High Pressure Core Composer Technologie macht mehr aus Holz

HIGH PRESSURE CORE COMPOSER TECHNOLOGIE MACHT MEHR AUS HOLZ


Industrie/Maschinenbau/Holzbearbeitung/Messe


Fill stellt innovatives Verfahren für wesentlich effizientere Mittellagenproduktion vor. Erfolgreiche Performance auf der LIGNA 2017.
 
Mit dem völlig neuen HPCC (High Pressure Core Composer) Verfahren für die Produktion von Mittellagen ist Fill Maschinenbau ein entscheidender Fortschritt in der effizienten Holzbearbeitung gelungen. Diese Neuentwicklung steigert die Rohmaterialnutzung um bis zu 35 Prozent. Erstmals dem Fachpublikum vorgestellt wurde auch das neue Bedienkonzept der speedliner-Bandsägen-Serie für eine einfache und intuitive Bedienung – Hightech leicht gemacht! Damit sorgten die oberösterreichischen Maschinenbauer für die Messehighlights auf der internationalen Leistungsschau LIGNA vom 22. bis 26. Mai 2017 in Hannover.
 
Hannover/Gurten, 07. Juni 2017 Ob neue Mittellagenproduktion HPCC, vollautomatische Ausbesserungsanlage oder einfach zu bedienende Hightech-Bandsägen – am Fill Messestand auf der LIGNA 2017 wurde gleich eine ganze Reihe an Innovationen präsentiert. Mit 1.500 Ausstellern aus 45 Ländern gilt die LIGNA als wichtigste internationale Fachmesse für die Forst- und Holzwirtschaft.
 
Höhere Qualität – mehr Ertrag
Für die Produktion von Mittellagen für 3-Schichtplatten und Parkett hat Fill das HPCC Verfahren entwickelt. Bei dieser Innovation setzen die oberösterreichischen Maschinenbauer auf die Produktion von Leimbindern als Halbzeug. Das Schnittholz wird äußerst sparsam vorgehobelt und anschließend mit sehr hohem Pressdruck verpresst. Äste, Risse und andere fehlerhafte Stellen werden dabei im Rohmaterial fixiert. In Kombination mit den speedliner-Bandsägen mit extrem dünner Schnittfuge erhöht sich dadurch die Materialausbeute um 25 bis 35 Prozent auf bis zu 90 Quadratmeter pro Kubikmeter Rohmaterial.
 
Bedienung leicht gemacht: easy-to-use
„Die intuitive Bedienbarkeit auch komplexer Anlagen hat sich spätestens seit Industrie 4.0 zu einem wichtigen Faktor entwickelt. Der Bediener soll möglichst schnell und gut mit der Maschine zusammenarbeiten können, um in kürzester Zeit ein optimales Ergebnis zu erzielen. Es geht um die effiziente Kommunikation zwischen Mensch und Maschine. Eine höhere Anlagenverfügbarkeit und damit geringere Produktionskosten sind die Folge“, erklärt Erwin Altendorfer, Leiter des Fill Kompetenz Centers Holz. Das neue Bedienkonzept der speedliner-Serie ist ein entscheidender Schritt zu mehr Effizienz bei der Ver- und Bearbeitung von Holz. Einfach im Handling, ergiebig in der Produktivität.

Gurten – the epicenter of casting technology

GURTEN – THE EPICENTER OF CASTING TECHNOLOGY


Industry/Machine Engineering/Casting Technology/Event

More than 300 attendees and around 40 exhibitors gathered at Fill Machine Engineering for the 61st Austrian Foundry Conference.
 
On April 27 and 28, 2017, the Innviertel town of Gurten was the center of the German-speaking foundry world. The Austrian Foundry Institute, the Faculty of Foundry Science at Leoben University of Mining, and the Austrian Association of Foundry Engineers held the 61st Austrian Foundry Conference in the Fill Future Dome. With a record attendance, around 300 experts (casters and their customers, suppliers, friends, and sponsors) and 40 exhibitors from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Slovenia gathered to engage in knowledge transfer and networking.
 
Gurten, 08 May 2017 The conference focused on the theme of "modern foundry processes to meet the challenge of lightweight construction". Numerous plenary talks and technical lectures by distinguished experts highlighted new and innovative solutions.
The 40 exhibitors presented their products covering all areas of modern casting technology. The convivial "caster soirée" on April 27 at the Loryhof in Wippenham ensured that the sociable part of the conference was by no means neglected.
 
International technology leader
Fill develops and supplies machines and systems for aluminum and iron foundries. The company accompanies its customers through each and every production process, from core manipulation and casting right up to the finished product. "20 million cylinder heads, 300 million chassis components, and 60 million wheels are produced worldwide every year on systems made by us," says Fill CEO Wolfgang Rathner, reporting some of the company´s impressive figures. This makes the Austrian high-tech company an international technology and world market leader.
 
The new digital world of work – opportunity or risk?
Host Andreas Fill kicked off the conference with a discourse on the subject of "the new digital world of work – the CORE principle". Industry 4.0 is a relatively young, excessively used term, which is often represented complexly and misleadingly. In the foreground, there is the relationship between machines and systems. In an already particularly dynamic working world, fear and prejudice prevail in connection with digitalization. In times when real and virtual worlds are gradually coalescing, a legitimate question is raised: Will people fall by the wayside? Andreas Fill outlined the answer to this question in a live demonstration of the unique CORE communication tool, which puts people at the center of attention and – regardless of the industry – significantly affects the success of a company. On the journey through the digital world of Fill, the tremendous opportunities and potential of the seamless networking of all employees come to the fore and people realize: Software that operates intuitively is more than just the intelligent stringing together of zeros and ones; in fact, it forms the basis for a meaningful corporate philosophy – the CORE principle.
