AUTOMATION

 

To produce at the high volumes and low cost required by the housing market a high degree of automation is used.

 

Long complex production lines very similar to the automotive industry.

 

 

QUALITY  CONTROL

RFID  &  BARCODE

INVENTORY  TRACKING

 

At the each part of the process there are quality control inspections -  using laser and 3D vision scanning systems.

 

All parts have RFID tags embedded and are bar coded

then scanned by the robots and inventory tracking system.

 

 

PACKING

 

Panels are flat packed and plastic wrapped by job order by the equivalent of large palletising robots and machinery before preparing for dispatch.

 

 

ADVANCED COMPOSITE PANELS

 

30 STEP MANUFACTURING PROCESS

 

For simplicity and without disclosing

the 3D printing and injection

and other proprietary processes,

here are abbreviated steps.

 

1. OUTER BOARDS heated

 

2. Placement robots

FIX the outer BOARDS

 

OSB3 / CLT / MgO / Cement Boards

 on the large vacuum press / mould.

 

3.  Polymer resin APPLIED

Polymer resins are sprayed

by robots on the outer boards

 

4. FIBRE GLASS REINFORCEMENT

1st layer applied to resin boards

 

5.  2nd Polymer resin

Polymer resin applied

to fibreglass

 

6. FIBRE GLASS REINFORCEMENT

2nd layer applied

 

7.  3rd Polymer resin

Polymer resin applied

to 2nd fibreglass

 

8. FIRE RESISTANT FOAM

Fire Resistant (PIR) Foam

component liquids are heated

and mixed at very high pressure.

 

Robots inject it into the

panel presses / moulds.

 

9-13.  Three MORE LAYERS resin

two more layers FIBRE GLASS

REINFORCEMENT

 

14. OUTER BOARDS PLACED ON TOP

 

15. BAKING COMPLETE PANEL

UNDER PRESSURE &

CURED WITH HEAT

 

16. laser cutting robots

 

After closed baking,

laser guided cutting robots

cut the panels, windows, sockets

and  door frames to exact size

 - accurate to 1mm

 

 

17. high quality painting robots

 

Next spray cells

similar to car production

accurately and evenly

paint 3 coats on to the panels
