Gypsum Board Production

Panelboard production

LIMAB has for more than 30 years supplied laser sensors and complete
non-contact measuring systems for in-line control of dimensions to building material industries worldwide. 

All our systems are based on non-contact measurement. This is a modern , yet well proven, way of measuring that can replace systems with the older method using mechanical contact rollers pressing against the panel during measurement.

We measure thickness, width, geometry, edge profile, level and position.
We can measure most types of material such as: 


Wood based panels: 

  • Fibreboards (LDF, MDF, HDF, THDF)
  • Particleboard,
  • Chipboard,
  • OSB
  • Veneer
  • Plywood,
  • LVL
  • Hardboard/Glulam
  • Honeycomb panels
Insulation materials: 
  • Stonewool
  • Glasswool
  • XPS-Extruded Polystyrene
  • Fibreglass
Structural Insulated Panels, SIP’s:
  • Sandwich type of panels with different core and face materials

Other types of products: 

  • Fibrecement panels
  • Laminate and Plastic Floorings
  • Door skins

Typical applications:

  • Level measurement in silos
  • Positioning- carriers and panels
  • Matt height before presses
  • Thickness measurement after presses 
  • Thickness before sanders
  • Thickness after sanders  
  • Dimensions in finishing lines
