Home Categories Välinge launches latest generation of 5G inserters

Välinge has recently launched a new generation of 5G inserters, optimized for all types and widths of 5G tongues.

The changeover between tongue widths and even tongue types is completed in approximately five minutes and is typically performed by the operator, according to the company. Featuring pre-selectable recipes, user-friendly HMI and providing high accuracy with its in-built X-Y table, the 5G inserter has a small footprint to be easily integrated into profiling machines.

Configured to reach 140 tongues per minute in its standard version, this 5G inserter also enables two tongues to be inserted in the same panel for wide flooring boards. Six new-generation 5G inserters have already been installed in Europe.

One of the new 5G inserters has been installed at Timberwise in Finland. Välinge licensee since 2005, Timberwise manufactures full-plank engineered wood flooring with 5G. “We received very good support and training from Välinge during the installation and startup,” said Jari Pajala, COO of Timberwise. “Our up time in the line has increased, and the machine is easy to understand and requires little maintenance apart from cleaning. Switching between formats is done very swiftly.”

Välinge supplies its licensees worldwide with 5G locking tongues produced in Sweden and in China. Dimensions, durability, aging and physical properties are thoroughly tested and controlled to ensure that the tongues will last for the lifetime of the floor. The 5G tongues are inserted in the floorboards during the production process, directly after the locking systems have been profiled through a double end tenoner (DET).
