Forestry meets Industry 4.0

Cutting-edge production techniques and innovative design are opening new opportunities for New Zealand’s forestry sector and for Wood Engineering Technology (WET) that means converting second-rate, low-value logs – destined for woodchips – into quality timber.

WET has a patented method of creating glue-laminated timber, or ‘glulam’, which consists of pieces of wood stuck together with a moisture-resistant adhesive.

WET’s industrial process exploits the variability within each log as well as the grade, or quality of the log, which is broken down and then reengineered as lumber.

It is the optimisation of the disassembly and reassembly process that gives WET its innovation edge.
