Globe has been involved with the improvement of plywood machinery since our inception in 1917, a tradition that continues today with a comprehensive machinery range capable of processing material from the dryer outfeed through to the finished products.
The Globe trim saws (known as "skinner saws" and "equalizer saws" in North America) have been a staple of Globe's production since the early days of the plywood industry. They are normally part of a high speed trimming and grading line and they are proven as reliable and rugged machines. Globe saws in excess of forty years old are still in daily use cutting at speeds of 35 or more panels per minute. Over the years, the design has been constantly updated to maintain our position as an industry leader.
Designed to produce a variety of sanded or textured finishes with edge and face profiling capabilities, Globe specialty saws are also built to withstand tough, high speed production for many years. The sander technology employed in the specialty saws is also used to produce multi-head calibrating and finishing sanders up to 5 feet wide.
Our press line program is based on a partnership effort with well known press manufacturers. Globe has developed a full range of press loading and unloading systems including "one man systems" and "chargers" as well as the associated control and conveyor systems. Globe pre-presses are respected throughout the industry for their solid construction and the traditional globe glue spreader is still tough to beat for productivity and efficiency.
