VACUUM PRESS AND CLT WALL TECHNOLOGY
Laminated timber panels defined X-lam or CLT, commonly called solid panel, made their appearance in Europe at the beginning of 1990.
In Europe, this product is widely used for the construction of residential and non-residential buildings, including on several levels.
The laminated wood panels are known for their high performance in terms of thermal and acoustic insulation, their seismic properties and structural strength.
They are formed by a series of juxtaposed strips, stacked perpendicular at 90 degrees and glued with a fixative. Normally there can be at least 3 layers and possibly up to a maximum of 7.
The membrane system developed by SARMAX exploits the principle of air delivered from a vacuum pump. Depression will activate the pressing membrane onto the wall thus creating pressure on the same.
Hermetic tanks and membranes can be created for wall sections of up to 16 metres long and 3.5 metres wide.
The bonding bridge is controlled on three axes and electronic movement is managed by the operator via remote control.
The stand is mounted on two rails fixed to the ground. The entire system consists of an electro-welded frame, a movable gluing unit, a pumping circuit, a monitoring and glue distribution system.
Gluing is carried out through a glue-sector with a width of 1600 mm. It is divided into four independent sectors to facilitate distribution of the glue and maintenance of these. The operations of movement and of selection of the sectors are manageable by remote control.
