WEINIG Compact finger jointing lines: Construction timber production in the smallest space
The particular feature of most compact lines is the fact that all processing steps
- Shaping (pre-scoring)
are carried out during one clamping process. This means no mismatch and splintering occur on the lamellae at the same time as achieving a high capacity.
The compact line for high standards
- Vertical finger joint including scoring unit to avoid splintering
- Shaping process from top to bottom (defined work piece support)
- No reverse positioning of the timbers (no load on the finger joints)
- Contact-free glue application using glue nozzles
- Servo-controlled drive profile of the shaper head for fantastic shaping result

Top quality glulam in seconds
At Weinberger in Austria, a glulam lamella is jointed every two seconds. However, output is not the prime objective. It is quality that counts.
Weinberger Holz in Abtenau recently commissioned a completely new system concept for glulam production. Two high-performance compact systems from the WEINIG GreconLine provide output of 30 longitudinal joints per minute. Normally, one strand is responsible for the flawless top layer and a second for the central layers. However, if the top layer is proportionally small, e.g. in the case of thick girders, both machines joint central layers. Second highlight: Since the finger jointing is only performed by one cross-cut saw, a WEINIG OptiCut Quantum 450, both top and central layer quality can be processed without a larger buffer of raw wood.
By extracting flawless parts from the raw timber, Weinberger has increased its surface quality to "unprecedented levels" in its own words. The "completely open construction on one side" was first used when finger jointing on both PowerJoint 15 machines. The wood is transported via cross conveyor directly into the processing area, where it is simply finely positioned before jointing commences. Weinberger is certain that compact systems have significantly higher pressing quality compared with extrusion presses. The individual clamping reduces jointing offset. A top priority for the quality-driven Carinthians.
