In the years 2001/04 the Authors have made an investigation to find an alternative to traditional gluing techniques. The aim of the project was the development of an innovative gluing technique that would be applicable both economically and qualitatively in industrial production. This research work, led to the discovery that Linear Vibration Welding Technology (LVWT), a technique widely used in the plastic and car industry, can also be used to induce the thermal activation of duroplastic adhesives and thus to manufacture high-quality wood joints. According to the positive outcomes of this study, the innovation was patented and the first contacts with potential customers were taken. The Authors report on the latest progress made in both research and industrial implementation of the developed technique.
