Välinge's new machine concept for luxury vinyl tile (LVT) products, developed together with Homag, produces LVT products with cost-saving 3-D core technology, according to the companies.

The principle of the technology is to mill grooves lengthwise on the backside of the LVT board. By subsequently recycling the removed material in the production process, raw material consumption can be reduced up to 20%, according to the companies. The technology also results in lighter flooring products which, in turn, enables improved transportation utilization as the same transport volumes can be filled with more square meters of products.

The unit can be used as standalone or inline with profiling equipment and has a capacity of 30–100 m/min.
