Not only does this make LVL stronger than traditional plywood, it also makes for an easier production process. The LVL Process * Logs are debarked and steamed to equalise internal moisture content. * Electric hydraulic chainsaws are used to cut the logs to length. * A rotary lathe peels logs into 2.75mm to 4.1mm- thick sheets of veneer. * Veneer sheets are cut to the required width. * The sheets are dried for 15 minutes at 180 degrees in a continuous drying process. * Sheets are jointed either lengthwise or widthwise to predetermined board sizes. * Sheets pass through a ''semi-lay up'' -- a curtain of glue -- and formed into board sizes. * Sheets are glued together (three to 14 sheets make one LVL board). * A cold press holds veneers together to allow the glue to form ''tack''. * Steam-heated hot press used to cure glue. * LVL sheets are block stacked for four days to equalise moisture. * Sheets cut to various sizes and profiles. * Product packaged and exported. Timber mill a proud Wairarapa company There is no question that the letters JNL are synonymous with the timber mill that takes pride of place at the southern entrance to Masterton. But after two decades there is still confusion among many in the community as to what the acronym stands for. Juken Nissho Ltd, as it was originally called, has since 1998 been Juken New Zealand Ltd. That a huge number of people in the community still refer to the mill as Juken Nissho is a point of frustration for many at the mill. Nissho Iwai was an initial shareholder during the formation of the company but they have since been bought out. The name JNL is purely to keep it simple. The word Juken is an amalgamation of live and build, roughly translating to ''Wood for Life''.
