Glulam Beam Processing Line in Russia

Year: 2011
Application: Engineered Wood Products

The most modern log home component factory in Russia is located in the town of Sokol in the Vologda Region. Unlike the log homes we know in America, the Russian log home walls are typically built out of a laminated assembly of 5 planks 2" thick and up to 9" wide. Those glulam beams are assembled in blanks up to 45 feet long. These are cut to size and profiled to assemble into a country home, just like a huger 3-D crossword puzzle.

Sokol Timber turned to Doucet to build versatile fingerjointer capable of handling blocks in excess of 10 feet long down to 16 inches, an assembly press with curing capability of lamellas up to 45 feet long, and 3 lanes Glulam vertical cold press with automatic beam forming and discharge systems.

Production at the Sokol Timber factory has come on stream in the spring of 2011. The plant has a rated capacity of 15 million board feet per year.

Equipments provided by Doucet in this project consist of:

  • Fingerjointer Loading device for long boards
