Rundvik sawmill updated with fully plastic-coated timber packaging

Published:  30 August, 2016

SCA Timber, in conjunction with engineering company Nyland Design, has developed a completely new automated packaging line. This line means that wood packages can now be coated with plastic on all six sides.

Standard wood packages are protected by a plastic covering but are open on the underside. The solution for protecting wood packages was to wrap them in plastic on all six sides. No such packaging solution was available for wood packages, but the engineering company Nyland Design was commissioned by SCA to develop a suitable packaging line.

“Since its startup, the new packaging line has produced about 15,000 packages and our wood is now well protected all the way to our customers,” said Fredrik Wikström, business manager for the Rundvik sawmill.
