Fricke und Mallah supplies microwave technology of the highest quality to numerous branches of industry. The expertise of our experienced high frequency engineers enables us to understand the most demanding applications and deliver solutions that convince our customers.
One of our most important target industries is mechanical engineering companies in the woodworking industry.
Microwave systems are used to preheat wood before veneering and to dry chipboard, OSB, MDF and LVL boards. The wood is heated and dried in a high-frequency alternating electric field.
The heating process is largely dependent on the dielectric properties of the wood pulp, which vary particularly with changes in humidity.
The main advantages of microwaves are rapid heating and the occurrence of temperature and humidity gradients, which counteract the shuttering and accelerate drying.
