A sector with
‘Gigantic’ describes the Tricor Packaging &
Logistics AG production facility in Eppishausen/
Germany. Every hour, the fully-automated
WEINIG production line produces around 360
pallets for in-house use.
Freight transport is one of the world’s major growth
markets. Manufacturers of wooden packaging are
benefiting from this. One representative of the sector
is Tricor, the European market leader in heavy-duty
corrugated cardboard packaging. Customers come
primarily from the automotive and mechanical
engineering sectors as well as the electronics, medical
technology and chemical industries.
For a long time, the company purchased its annual
requirement of 1,300,000 special pallets externally.
Then they turned to WEINIG. Besides increased
productivity, improving the value chain was also on
their wish list.
In June 2017, a highly automated cutting system
was delivered to the Eppishausen plant. Central
components comprise three parallel OptiCut 260

In 1932, brothers John and Rudy took
their German grandfather’s knowledge
of wood to Wisconsin. Today, the family
business is one of the premier addresses
for high-quality interior fittings in the US.
When it comes to refined and sophisticated
finishes, the ;ange ;ros. Woodwork team
can provide the inspiration. The proof is an
impressive list of reference projects throughout
the country. The company has a particularly
excellent reputation as a restoration specialist.
With a dynamic pair of siblings at the helm, the new
generation of the family is on a growth trajectory.
The company is currently in the process of optimizing
and expanding its moulding and cutting operations.
This included the acquisition of a rip saw. The chosen
model was a VarioRip 310 with infeed automation.
Rory Lange explains why the saw had to come from
WEINIG: “When we were looking for a rip saw, we
were particularly concerned about reliability, quality
control and simple operation. The VarioRip 310
has precisely these benefits.; ;e was particularly
impressed by the convenient adjustment of ripped
widths to meet changing requirements and the laser
measuring system that helps the operator to achieve
optimal wood yield with minimal waste. “It is exactly
innovative technology like this that will allow us to
embrace the future,” said Lange.

belt and downstream sorting as well as an Ultra TT
finger;jointing line for leftover pieces. The finger;
jointed lamellae are then fed back into production.
Only three employees are needed to produce up
to 360 pallets per hour on the high-performance
production line, which is linked to a Corali pallet
system. For a pallet measuring 1, 220 x 820 mm, this
equates to approx. 80 m/min of incoming material
to the cross-cut saws or around 30,000 running
meters per shift. The system is charged via vacuum
destacking, which takes up to three infeed stacks
simultaneously with three different wood dimensions.
Dr. Mario Kordt, Managing Director of Weinig Dimter,
commented, “With our technology, we provide a
unique service to an area that ranges from 2-man
operations to the industrial sector.”
