Plummer Forest Products will upgrade the multi-opening press at its particleboard mill in Post Falls, Idaho, as Random Lengths reports.
The 25 press platens will be replaced and converted to hydraulic simultaneous closing arms. The project is expected to take about three weeks and be completed by the end of the 1Q 2016.
The investment is primarily designed to improve product quality, but could also increase the plant's efficiency as much as 5%.
Plummer Forest Products manufactures particleboard panels from 100% pre-consumer recycled wood fiber.
