Viken, Sweden — Välinge’s new high-speed Powder Backing line in the R&D Center in Viken demonstrates the full cost saving potentials that can be created by the wood powder technology on laminate and nadura products.
The Powder Backing technology is already successfully used in the production lines at Välinge and MeisterWerke. Välinge’s latest high-speed Powder Backing line is taking the technology to the next level, proving it for high production speed. “We have been running extensively our new Powder Backing line at 30 meter/min”, says Peter Wingårdh, senior project manager at Välinge Innovation
By replacing the backing paper by a fiber and binder mixture, the cost for the balancing layer of the floor boards can be significantly reduced. More than cost savings, the Powder Backing technology opens up new opportunities for more flexible and environmental friendly manufacturing process.
