OSB with a difference
Industry-leading companies facing cost pressures, need for capacity expansions and the expected shortage of round wood resources turn to MAIER for new ways of strand production. Our unique technology allows the processing of not-yet usable resources such as short-pieced wood, crooked wood and weak wood as raw material for OSB panel production.
In the first stage of our two-stage process, macro chips of 80 to 140 mm length are produced by a special kind of drum chipper type HRL-OSB. In the second stage, these macro chips are cut to high-quality strands by a MAIER Strand Flaker type MSF.
Boards made of MAIER strands meet the quality standards of up to OSB-4 and have optical and mechanical properties comparable to conventionally produced OSB.
- Use of not-yet usable and cheap raw material assortments
- Capacity extension of existing plants
- New OSB plants with capacities starting from 50 m³ per day
- Modular capacity increases similar to PB plants
- Board quality up to OSB-4
