Innovative technology for efficient crossfeed veneer splicing.

KUPER ACR Crossfeed Veneer Splicer

Perfection in motion.

The powerful KUPER ACR: Modern design, innovative functions, perfect and highly efficient crossfeed splicing with glued joints. Processing of large veneer widths – with fast pull-in and short cycle times, also for wavy or narrow veneers.

Operating principle

The current concept combines traditional and modern workmanship in technology and design. The new KUPER ACR crossfeed veneer splicer offers increased speed and consistently high quality – thanks to the state-of-the-art intelligent control system, which ensures perfectly coordi­nated processes. The optimized design is the result of 80 years of expertise and experience in the design and manu­facture of veneer splicers. The individual processing steps are optimally coordinated. The infeed of the pre-glued veneers is done by transport belts. During the transport to the splicing zone the veneer will be measured and aligned. Depending on the strip width, the integrated first strip pull-in facility switches on automatically. This allows fast processing of narrow and wavy veneers. The linear moveable top pressure unit can be manually positioned and is easily accessible for maintenance purposes. The installed cross cutting knife cuts the veneer sheet to the set fixed dimensi­on. The cut strips are then automatically and precisely stacked. All production parameters are listed in the clearly laid out touch screen and are immediately available.

Advantages at a glance

  • Fast: Perfect joints with short cycle times

  • Flexible: Fast change of veneer or dimension variation

  • Integrative: Automatic first-sheet pull-in facility for narrow veneer strips (option)

  • Precise: Fast and coordinated movements thanks to the precise servo drive and intelligent control system

  • Compatible: Compatible with the automatic veneer stacker KUPER VSR and with an automatic feeding unit

  • Optimised: Top pressure unit with infinitely variable height adjustment, especially for wavy and narrow veneer strips

  • Gluetype: PVAc or urea




The control panel with uniform and easy-to-recognise symbols facilitates selection and control via the screen
with touch function. This allows direct selection of the most important functions.


The ACR is compatible with the endsplicing and trimming unit KUPER VSR and can be extended with an automatic feeding unit.

Function of the KUPER VSR

The veneer sheets are strengthened on the front and cut to the required size by tape or glue thread. The resulting waste is passed under the machine and collected. The KUPER VSR guarantees a precise stacking operation. Combined with the KUPER ACR all process parameters can be entered into the touch panel of the ACR and can be requested anytime. 

Stacker system KUPER VS

Different stacking depths from 1600 mm up to 3800 mm are available.
