German Innovation Award

Congratulation! Our license partner Rothoblaas received the German Innovation Award in the category “Winner Excellence in Business to Business, Building & Elements” for the SPIDER CONNECTOR system, developed on the timber engineering unit by Roland Maderebner and Bernhard Maurer.


Holzbewehrtes Holz

Veneer reinforced timber

“Proof of concept” passed for a new, inherently reinforced timber product from glulam and hardwood veneers. The tension perpendicular to the grain and shear strength could be multiplied while the bending strength and stiffness remained almost unchanged. (Free download for 50 days using above given link).

Research for timber construction practice
(An interview with Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Philipp Dietsch)

A quote from the French writer Francis Picabia, namely "Our head is is round, so that our thinking can change direction", is a guiding principle of Prof. Philipp Dietsch. Since March 1st, he’s been head of the Unit of Timber Engineering at the Institute for Construction and Materials Science at the Technical University of Innsbruck. It will be interesting to see what spin he can give the future elite in timber construction and, above all, what input he can give the Tyrolean economy. Answers in the following interview ...
