The Dascanova Co. introduced at Ligna 2011 a new panel product with a wave-like internal structure, resulting in an improved internal bond strength. The company said it has seen a variety of benefits, including that the raw material costs for the panels can be reduced by up to 30 percent in the panel production, while achieving the same or better mechanical properties of standard panels on the market. The panels are basically the same as standard wood based panel : same fittings, same connection elements,...  

The final products with this new wood panels will be lighter and cheaper than the standard panels. This will reduce cost for IKEA in term of production and transportation. Also, using this new method will help IKEA to reduce environmental impact and complete its CSR.
