Butt joint bonding of timber

 The engineers at Timbatec managed to glue timber on the face side. This opens up a whole new world of structural and design-related options that was previously inaccessible to timber constructions


Bonding of beams

 Gluing cross-laminated timber to form beams of any length


Bonding of slabs

 Gluing cross-laminated timber to form slim slabs of any size


Column heads

 Highly stable column heads with breaking loads from 1,100 to 3,100 kN (110 to 310 tonnes)


Floor slabs

 Connecting column heads to ceiling elements to create slim floor slabs


Frame construction

 These new technologies make it possible to construct multiaxial-bearing slim slabs for structural timber elements


High-rise buildings

 The new technologies put the construction of high-rise timber buildings within reach. The structural elements may need to be encapsulated, i.e. clad, with plasterboard depending on national regulations


Shear walls without slippage

 It is now possible to calculate bracing walls as an entire surface with cut-outs. This reduces flexibility and increases rigidity, e.g. for seismic loads


Simple V-structures

 Angled surfaces can also be bonded. This makes it possible to form simple V-structures, for instance


Complex folded plates

 Unfolding makes it possible to create complex folded plates


Bridge construction

 Tiled slab box used in bridge construction


Pipe-shaped modules

 Box modules open at the face side for hotel rooms


Buildings made of curved construction elements

 Curved construction elements can also be bonded, e.g. for troughs, salt silos, masts for wind farms and similar.


3D shell structures

 Biaxially curved shells can be used to construct 3-dimensional shell structures


Free forms

 Free forms are now also possible

    TS3 receives U.S. Patent for Face Bonding

    05.02.2020 Line

    It's official: The frontal connection of wooden components with TS3 technology has been patented in the USA since the beginning of 2020. This is already the second important US patent after that for building structures with columns, column heads and panels for floor slabs from November 2018.

    With the new online configurator from TS3 you can estimate the thickness of a wooden floor with just a few clicks. The pre-dimensioning of TS3 floor slabs is thus considerably simplified.    

  • Elections 2019 - A springboard for timber

    Elections 2019 - A springboard for timber

    22.10.2019 Line

    Switzerland's 2019 elections to the National Council will go down in history as the climate elections. A springboard for wood as a building material? Absolutely! Anyone who wants to contribute to climate protection is now building with timber. Wood stores CO2 in the long term and has an excellent climate balance - on the other hand, the cement industry is one of the biggest climate sinners.
