RAUTE LVL PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY

Creating agile solutions with the best equipment

Raute develops a complete range of machinery, systems, and technology to produce engineered wood.

DID YOU KNOW?

More than half of the world’s LVL is produced using the technology created by Raute.

What is LVL technology?

As higher demands for environmentally conscious choices continuously increase in the modern wood building industry, LVL (laminated veneer lumber) is becoming a good and dependable partner. Thanks to the engineered process, the wood becomes much stronger, adaptable, and more versatile than natural timber.
 
Raute is a pioneer of LVL production machinery. We are constantly developing even more accurate ways to master the LVL production technology. It all starts from an understanding of wood as a raw material. Our optimized solutions extend to log handling, peeling, drying, grading, stacking, lay-up, pressing, and billet handling. Today, Raute is the only LVL mill supplier in the world offering solutions for all production phases.

What is LVL good for?

LVL (laminated veneer lumber) is an engineered wood panel that can be produced in different lengths, thicknesses, and widths. It is made of thin veneersheets that are piled and pressed into a continuous billet of LVL. Because the flaws of the wood are evenly distributed, rather than being concentrated in specific places as in natural timber, the LVL's strength-to-weight ratio becomes exceptionally high. It is easily adaptable and allows quick installations.

The stable engineered wood product performs best in places where large open floor plans are required. LVL is an environmentally friendly choice, because  it is manufactured from certified raw materials that also serve as a carbon store in buildings. Read more about what LVL has to offer.
