Abstract

The method involves scattering a layer of wood fibers glued with resin, by a scattering device (1) to form a fiber cake (4), and compressing the fiber cake under pressure and temperature. The fiber cake is conveyed by a conveyor device (2) in a process direction to a pressing device (7) in which the fiber cake is pressed to form a wood-fiber board (8) of desired thickness. A printing device (5) is arranged above the conveyor device, and positioned between the scattering device and the pressing device. A pattern is applied to the fiber cake before compression. An independent claim is also included for an installation for producing a wood-fiber board.

Description

  • Die Erfindung betrifft ein Verfahren zur Herstellung einer Holzfaserplatte, die auf ihrer Oberseite ein Dekor aufweist, indem beleimte Holzfasern in wenigstens einer Schicht zu einem Faserkuchen gestreut werden, und der Faserkuchen anschließend unter Druck und Temperatur zu einer Platte gewünschter Dicke verpresst wird. The invention relates to a method for manufacturing a wood fiber board, comprising a decoration on their upper side by glue-coated wood fibers are scattered in at least one layer to a fiber cake, and the fiber cake then is pressed into a sheet of desired thickness under pressure and temperature. Die Erfindung betrifft außerdem eine Anlage zur Herstellung einer Holzfaserplatte mit einer Streuvorrichtung, mittels derer ein aus mehreren Schichten mit Harz beleimter Holzfasern bestehender Faserkuchen gestreut wird, und einer Fördervorrichtung, die den Faserkuchen in einer Prozessrichtung zu einer Pressvorrichtung fördert, in der der Faserkuchen zu einer Platte gewünschter Dicke gepresst wird. The invention also relates to a plant for manufacturing a wood fiber board with a spreading device, by means of which a of several layers of glued with resin wood fibers existing fiber cake is spread, and a conveying device which conveys the fiber cake in a process direction to a pressing device in which the fiber cake to a plate of desired thickness is pressed.
  • Ein derartiges Verfahren und eine derartige Anlage sind im Stand der Technik seit langem bekannt. Such a method and such a plant are known in the art for a long time. Bei der Herstellung von Holzfaserplatten wird das zu verwendende Holz zunächst zu feinen Fasern verarbeitet. In the production of wood fiber boards, the wood to be used is first processed to fine fibers. Diese werden anschließend mit einem Harz beleimt und dann in mehreren Schichten zu einem Faserkuchen auf eine Transportvorrichtung, beispielsweise ein Förderband, aufgestreut. They are then glued with a resin and then in multiple layers to form a fiber cake on a transport device, for example a conveyor belt, sprinkled. Der Faserkuchen wird durch die Fördervorrichtung einer Pressvorrichtung zugeführt, in der der Faserkuchen unter Druck- und Temperatureinfluss zu einer Holzfaserplatte verpresst wird. The fiber cake is fed by the conveying apparatus of a pressing device in which the fiber cake is pressed under pressure and temperature influence to a wood fiber board. Dazu wird beispielsweise auf die For this purpose, for example to the DE 10 2005 021 903 A1 DE 10 2005 021 903 A1 , die , the DE 10 2005 035 214 A1 DE 10 2005 035 214 A1 oder die or DE 195 32 819 A1 DE 195 32 819 A1 verwiesen. directed.
  • In der Holzwerkstoffindustrie liegt der Fokus auf der dekorativen Veredelung der Produkte, beispielsweise Holzfaserplatten oder daraus hergestellter Produkte, wie beispielsweise Fußbodenpaneele. In the wood products industry, the focus is on the decorative finishing of the products, such as wood fiber plates or products produced therefrom, such as floor panels. Dabei ist es neben der Verbesserung der optischen Qualität dieser dekorativen Veredelung erklärtes Ziel, die Produktion zu vereinfachen, den dafür nötigen Platzbedarf zu verringern und so die Kosten zu senken. It is in addition to improving the optical quality of these decorative finishing declared aim to simplify production, reduce the space required for necessary and to reduce costs.
  • Dies wurde beispielsweise dadurch erreicht, dass man den Kern oder die Trägerplatte aus Holzwerkstoff des herzustellenden Fußbodenlaminates nicht mehr mit einem imprägnierten und bedruckten Dekorpapier beschichtete, wie beispielsweise in der This has been achieved for example in that one is no longer coated the core or the carrier plate of wood material of the manufactured laminate floor with a printed decor paper impregnated and, for example, in the DE 101 15 567 C1 DE 101 15 567 C1 beschrieben ist, sondern zur Direktbedruckung der Trägerplatten mit Hilfe des indirekten Tiefdruckes überging, wie dies beispielsweise in der is described, but passed to direct printing of the carrier plates using the indirect gravure printing, as for example, in DE 102 52 863 B4 DE 102 52 863 B4 oder der or the DE 10 2007 012 236 A1 DE 10 2007 012 236 A1 beschrieben ist. is described. Dadurch wurde neben der Einsparung des zusätzlichen Produktionsschrittes auch die Präzision der Positionierung des Druckes auf der Trägerplatte erreicht. Characterized in addition to the saving of the additional production step, the precision of the positioning of the pressure has been reached on the carrier plate. Zudem wurden Probleme eliminiert, die durch das Papierwachstum während der Imprägnierung hervorgerufen wurden. In addition, problems have been eliminated, which were caused by the paper growth during the impregnation.
  • Doch auch der direkte Druck der Holzfaserplatte weist einige Nachteile auf. But the direct pressure of the wood fiber board has some drawbacks. So ist es beim relativ komplexen Verfahren des Tiefdruckes nötig, die Holzfaserplatte vor dem Druck des eigentlichen Dekors zu grundieren. Thus, it is necessary in the relatively complex process of the low pressure to prime the wood fiber board before printing of the actual decor. Je nach optischer Struktur der verwendeten Holzfaserplatte können hier auch mehrere Grundierungsschichten notwendig sein. Depending on the optical structure of the fiberboard used several primer layers may be necessary. Jede Schicht wird in einem separaten Druckwerk aufgetragen, wodurch sowohl die Herstellungsdauer als auch der für die Herstellung nötige Platz deutlich erhöht wird. Each layer is applied in a separate printing unit, whereby both the production time and the necessary space for the production is significantly increased. Zudem ist es im Tiefdruckverfahren abhängig von der gewünschten Qualität notwendig, drei bis vier Druckwerke zur Bedruckung der grundierten Holzfaserplatte mit dem eigentlichen Dekor zu verwenden. It is also necessary in the gravure printing process depending on the desired quality to use three to four printing units for printing the primed masonite with the actual decor. Auch dies erhöht die Verweildauer der zu bedruckenden Holzfaserplatten in der Druckstraße und dem für diese nötigen Platz. This also increases the residence time of the print wood fiber plates in the printing line and the necessary for this course. Durch beide Effekte werden zudem die Herstellungskosten für beispielsweise Fußbodenlaminate deutlich erhöht. Both effects also the production costs for example, floor laminates are significantly increased.
  • Von dieser Problemstellung ausgehend soll das Verfahren zur Herstellung einer Holzfaserplatte vereinfacht werden, wobei die Druckqualität des Dekors gesteigert und die nötigen Herstellungskosten und der benötigte Platzbedarf im Produktionsprozess gesenkt werden soll. Starting from this problem, the process should be simplified for manufacturing a wood fiber board, whereby the print quality of the decor and increase the necessary manufacturing cost and the space required to be reduced in the production process.
  • Zur Problemlösung zeichnet sich ein gattungsgemäßes Verfahren dadurch aus, dass das Dekor vor dem Verpressen auf den Faserkuchen aufgebracht wird. To solve the problem, a generic method is characterized in that the decoration is applied to the fiber cake before pressing.
  • Die Bedruckung des teilweise vorverdichteten Faserkuchens bei der Herstellung von Holzfaserplatten wie MDF oder HDF im Tiefdruckverfahren gestaltet sich durchaus schwierig. The printing of the partially pre-compressed fiber cake in the production of wood fiber boards such as MDF or HDF in the gravure printing process turns out quite difficult. Der Grund dafür liegt darin, dass bei diesem Druckverfahren entweder ein druckstabiler Träger oder ein Substrat, das auf einer stabilen Unterlagen aufliegt, zur Anwendung kommt. The reason for this is that either a pressure-resistant carrier, or a substrate that rests on a stable documentation is used in this printing method are used. Vorteilhafter Weise erfolgt die Bedruckung des Faserkuchens daher berührungslos, insbesondere im Inkjet-Verfahren. therefore advantageously carried out the printing of the fiber cake without contact, in particular in an inkjet process. Geeignete Tintenstrahldrucker werden beispielsweise von der Firma J. Zimmer Maschinenbau GmbH, Kufstein/Österreich angeboten. Suitable inkjet printers are available for example from J. Zimmer Maschinenbau GmbH, Kufstein / Austria. Durch dieses Verfahren ist es möglich, an einer einzigen Druckstation das komplette Druckbild auf den Faserkuchen aufzubringen. By this method it is possible to apply to a single printing station, the complete image on the fiber cake. Mehrere verschiedene Druckwerke, beispielsweise für verschiedene Farben, sind nicht mehr nötig. Several different printing units, for example for different colors, are no longer necessary. Dies führt zu einer erheblichen Platz- und damit Kosteneinsparung. This results in a significant space and cost savings. Die Verwendung eines oder mehrerer Inkjet-Druckwerkes ist in einer herkömmlichen Produktionsstraße für Holzfaserplatten ohne Probleme möglich, da heutige Inkjet-Drucker Druckgeschwindigkeiten erreichen, die problemlos an die Produktionsgeschwindigkeit der Holzfaserplattenpresse angepasst werden können. The use of one or more inkjet printing unit is possible in a conventional production line for wood fiber boards without any problem, since today's inkjet printers reach printing speeds, which can be easily adapted to the production speed of the fiberboard press.
  • Dadurch, dass der Faserkuchen vor dem Verpressen bedruckt wird, wird die Druckqualität und die Brillanz des Druckes deutlich erhöht. Because the fiber cake is printed before pressing the print quality and the brilliance of the pressure is significantly increased. Der Faserkuchen weist durch die vielen relativ lose aufeinander liegenden Fasern eine sehr große Oberfläche auf. The fiber cake has a very large surface area due to the many relatively loosely superposed fibers. Diese große Oberfläche wird vor dem Verpressen bedruckt und anschließend beim Verpressen komprimiert. This large surface is printed prior to compression and then compressed during the compression. Durch das Verpressen wird die Druckpunktdichte erhöht, wodurch die Brillanz und Qualität des Druckbildes erhöht wird. By pressing the print dot density is increased, whereby the brilliance and quality of the printed image is increased. Das eigentlich gewünschte Dekorbild entsteht dabei erst beim Durchlaufen der Presse, in der die Oberfläche des Faserkuchens und damit das aufgebrachte Druckbild komprimiert wird. The actually desired decoration image only arises when passing through the press in which the surface of the fiber cake and thus the pressure applied image is compressed. Durch die Kompression des Druckbildes überlagern sich Bildpunkte oder rücken dichter zusammen, so dass pro Flächeneinheit nach dem Verpressen mehr Bildpunkte enthalten sind als vor dem Verpressen. The compression of the printed image to pixels overlap or move closer together, so that per unit area after pressing more pixels are included as before compression.
  • Zwischen dem Bedrucken des Faserkuchens und dem Verpressen kann bevorzugt eine Schutzschicht auf den Faserkuchen aufgebracht werden. Between the printing of the fiber cake and pressing, a protective layer may be applied to the fiber cake preferred. Diese besteht vorzugsweise aus einem Zellulose-Faser-Harzgemisch. This is preferably made of a cellulose-fiber-resin mixture. Dadurch wird erreicht, dass beim Verpressen des Faserkuchens das entstehende Dekor zugleich mit einer schützenden Schicht abgedeckt wird. Characterized that the resulting decoration is also covered with a protective layer during pressing of the fiber cake is achieved. Das Dekor ist somit gegen die Widrigkeiten des Weitertransportes der Holzfaserplatte sowie gegen Beschädigungen in weiteren Verarbeitungsschritten geschützt. The decor is thus protected from the rigors of further transport the wood fiberboard and against damage in further processing steps.
  • Der zu bedruckende Faserkuchen kann insbesondere weitere Bestandteile, wie Pigmente, Harze oder Salze enthalten. The printable fiber cake can in particular contain other ingredients such as pigments, resins, or salts thereof. Dadurch ist es beispielsweise möglich, die ansonsten benötigte Grundierung, die vor dem Auftragen der eigentlichen dekorativen Farbschichten auf die Holzfaserplatte aufgebracht werden muss, einzusparen. This example, it is possible to save the primer otherwise required, which must be applied to the wood fiber board before applying the actual decorative color layers. Dabei werden die verwendeten Druckfarben vorzugsweise an die Zusammensetzung des Faserkuchens mit seinen zusätzlichen Bestandteilen angepasst. The printing inks used are preferably adapted to the composition of the fiber cake with its additional components.
  • Es hat sich als vorteilhaft herausgestellt, dass auf bereits aufgestreute Fasern eine zusätzliche Schicht Holzfasern aufgestreut wird, die die genannten weiteren Bestandteile umfasst. It has proved advantageous that an additional layer of wood fibers is sprinkled onto already sprinkled fibers, which comprises the above-mentioned other components. Je nach Funktion und Aufgabe der zusätzlichen Bestandteile ist es oftmals nicht möglich, dass diese im gesamten Faserkuchen vorhanden sind. Depending on the function and object of the additional components, it is often not possible that they are present throughout the fiber cake. Soll durch die Zusätze beispielsweise nur eine Grundierung unnötig gemacht werden, ist es ausreichend, wenn sich diese im Bereich der zu bedruckenden Oberseite des Faserkuchens befinden. Should be made unnecessary by the additives, for example, only a primer, it is sufficient if they are located in the area of ​​print top of the fiber cake. Durch die Verwendung eines Faserkuchens ohne Zusätze, auf den eine zusätzliche Schicht Holzfasern aufgestreut wird, die die Zusätze enthalten, ist dies gewährleistet und es können Produktionskosten eingespart werden. By the use of a fiber cake without additives, to an additional layer of wood fibers is spread, containing the additives, it is ensured, and it can save production costs.
  • Dabei können die Holzfasern in der zusätzlichen Schicht feiner sein als die bereits aufgestreuten Fasern. The wood fibers can be finer than the already sprinkled fibers in the additional layer. Dadurch kann die Druckqualität und die Brillanz des Bildes nach dem Verpressen nochmals deutlich erhöht werden. Thus, the print quality and brilliance of the image after compression can be further substantially increased.
  • Dadurch, dass im erfindungsgemäßen Verfahren der aufgestreute Faserkuchen bereits vor dem Verpressen bedruckt wird, werden sowohl die Durchlaufzeiten reduziert als auch der Platzbedarf gegenüber dem herkömmlichen Produktionsverfahren gesenkt. The fact that is printed in the novel process of sprinkled fiber cake before the pressing, both cycle times are reduced as well as the reduced space requirement compared with the conventional production. Zudem treten alle Materialverluste, Beschädigungen und Handlingsprobleme, die durch den herkömmlichen Transfer der Holzfaserplatte zu weiteren Produktionsstufen auftreten können, nicht mehr auf. In addition, all material losses, damage and handling problems that may occur through the conventional transfer of wood fiber board to further stages of production occur, no longer occur.
  • Eine gattungsgemäße Anlage zur Herstellung einer Holzfaserplatte ist schematisch in der Draufsicht in der beigefügten Figur gezeigt und zeichnet sich dadurch aus, dass oberhalb der Fördervorrichtung 2 zwischen der Streuvorrichtung 1 und der Pressvorrichtung 7 eine Bedruckeinrichtung 5 angeordnet ist. A generic plant for manufacturing a wood fiber board is schematically shown in plan view in the accompanying figure and is characterized in that above the conveyor 2 between the spreading apparatus 1 and the pressing device 7, a printing means 5 is arranged.
  • Dadurch ist es möglich, einen auf die Fördervorrichtung 2, beispielsweise ein Förderband, aufgestreuten Faserkuchen 4 vor dem Verpressen in der Pressvorrichtung 7 mit einem Dekor zu bedrucken. Thereby, it is possible to print on one side to the conveying device 2, for example a conveyor belt, the sprinkled fiber cake 4 prior to the pressing in the press device 7 provided with a decoration. Dabei ist die Bedruckeinrichtung 5 vorteilhafter Weise ein Inkjet-Drucker. Here, the printing means 5 advantageously is an inkjet printer. Damit ist es möglich, das gesamte Druckbild mit nur einem einzigen Druckwerk aufzubringen. This makes it possible to apply the whole image with only a single printing unit. Die Verwendung mehrerer verschiedener Druckwerke wird somit überflüssig, wodurch eine deutliche Platz- und Kostenersparnis erreicht wird. The use of several different printing units, making it unnecessary to give a significant space and cost savings is achieved. Selbstverständlich können aber mehrere Inkjet-Drucker eingesetzt werden, um beispielsweise die Durchlaufgeschwindigkeit zu erhöhen. Of course, a plurality of inkjet printers can be employed, for example, to increase the throughput speed.
  • Zwischen der Bedruckeinrichtung 5 und der Pressvorrichtung 5, in der aus dem Faserkuchen 4 eine Platte 8 gewünschter Dicke erzeugt wird, kann eine erste zusätzliche Aufbringvorrichtung 5 angeordnet sein. Between the printing means 5 and of the press device 5, in which a plate 8 of desired thickness is produced from the fiber cake 4, a first additional applicator may be disposed. 5 Über diese erste zusätzliche Aufbringvorrichtung 6 kann auf den bereits bedruckten Faserkuchen 4 eine Schutzschicht aufgebracht werden, die beispielsweise aus einem Zellulose-Faser-Harzgemisch besteht. This first additional applicator 6, a protective layer may be applied to the previously printed fiber cake 4 which consists for example of a cellulose-fiber-resin mixture. Diese Schicht legt sich beim Verpressen auf das dabei entstehende Dekor und schützt es so vor Beschädigungen im weiteren Produktionsverlauf. This layer lies down when pressing on the resulting decor and protects it from damage in the further course of production.
  • Auch kann in Prozessrichtung T vor der Bedruckeinrichtung 5 eine zweite zusätzliche Aufbringvorrichtung 3 angeordnet sein. Also, a second additional application device 3 may be arranged in the process direction T in front of the printing means. 5 Über diese Aufbringvorrichtung 3 ist es möglich, auf einen sich auf der Fördervorrichtung 2 befindenden Faserkuchen 4 eine weitere Holz-Faserschicht aufzubringen, die beispielsweise feinere Fasern und Zusätze wie Pigmente, Harze oder Salze umfasst, die aufgrund ihrer Funktion und Aufgabe nur in diesem Bereich des Faserkuchens 4 benötigt werden. This applicator 3, it is possible to apply a more wood-fiber layer on a residing on the conveyor 2 fiber cake 4 which comprises, for example, finer fibers and additives such as pigments, resins, or salts of the result of their function and object only in this area are fiber cake 4 needs.
