Veneer Infeed Lappers Maximize Dryer Production




A must-have for maximizing dryer fill rate, Sweed includes lappers (even-enders) with all new infeed roll section builds, or sold separately, to add to an existing infeed roll section.

Lappers are easy to install and essential to dryer fill rate. Often providing return on investment within just a matter of months, a 1% production gain is realized for every inch of overlap.

The Infeed Lappers lift the forward veneer sheet automatically to allow the trailing sheet to slide underneath, and then lowers the forward sheet back onto the trailing sheet with an ideal overlap, as the sheets proceed into the dryer, maximizing fill rate and efficiency.

Upon the implementation of Sweed’s patent-pending “Smart-Pause” infeed program, a secondary set of lappers can be included prior to veneer entering the dryer, assuring a proper lap has occurred, if the lap on the primary set of lappers were missed.
