TS3 joins wood on the face side and thus enables point-supported large wooden surfaces. The technology is the result of 10 years of research and development by Timbatec together with the Bern University of Applied Sciences and ETH Zurich. Since the beginning of 2021, a new Innosuisse research project has been running for the further development of the technology and its successful establishment on the market.
Timbatec Holzbauingenieure Schweiz AG develops modern products and technologies. One of them is so promising that it was spun off into its own startup company in 2014. was spun off. The Timber Structures 3.0 technology, TS3 for short, is revolutionizing timber construction. With this technology, large areas of wood can be produced without the need for beams. This means that wood can replace traditional reinforced concrete in many projects. projects.
The TS3 technology is available to interested companies worldwide. All they need to do is to license themselves. Licensed are CLT manufacturers, application technicians and engineers after a training. Would learn more? Contact us at email@example.com
New research project
The Innosuisse research project Achieving market maturity of the biaxial load-bearing flat deck system in timber construction was started on 01.01.2021. TS3 is researching and optimizing in the next three years together with Henkel & Cie AG and Schilliger Holz AG and the research partners ETH Zurich and Berner University of Applied Sciences. Innosuisse is supporting the research institutes with about 700'000 CHF. The implementation partners again provide the same contribution.
Leading universities involved
At the Bern University of Applied Sciences, two work packages are being processed. On the one hand Pour to solid (PTS) to market, the suitability of TS3 for construction sites is being of TS3 is being optimized under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Steffen Franke. On the other hand the industrialization of the technology is being further developed by Prof. Dr. Klaus Rehm.
At the ETH, the Institute for Building Materials headed by Prof. Dr. Ingo Burgert is researching the
interaction of the wood-adhesive system, and at the Institute for Structural Analysis and
of Prof. Dr. Andrea Frangi is developing a two-axis load-bearing hollow
hollow box slab is being developed, which will be integrated into the TS3 system.
work packages will together lead to an increase in load-bearing capacity, an
extension of the range of application and finally also to an
efficiency increase in the application of the TS3 connection.
Timbatec is pleased that the TS3 technology is already being used successfully in the first construction projects. construction projects. We are convinced that the technology will technology will become established, not least thanks to the new research project. a significant share of the market.
