Engineered Composites Panel Pilot Plant

The Engineered Composites Panel Pilot Plant is one of the most highly-automated and -sophisticated panel development laboratory in North America. This scale-up facility is capable of simulating the operating environment of an industrial sawmill, to allow companies to explore new ideas and conduct trials without interrupting their own production lines.

The major equipment includes an automatic oriented-strand board (OSB) forming line with a five-by-nine-foot press, strander, dryer, screener and blenders.

The plant is capable of producing a range of strand-based and fibre-based panels, particle boards and laminated products.
