Siempelkamp reports that its 8th-generation ContiRoll for particleboard and MDF panel production continues to increase its sales. For the first three quarters of 2015, Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH has recorded encouraging sales successes for its ContiRoll. The Krefeld-based specialist has recorded orders for 12 facilities for MDF and particleboard production since the beginning of this year.
By the time the 2015 LIGNA trade fair opened its doors, Siempelkamp had already received four orders for production facilities for the wood-processing industry: besides a particleboard production plant ordered by a China-based customer, the Thailand-based Wisewood Green Panel ordered the latest version of an 8' x 25.5 m MDF plant with 8th-generation ContiRoll.
Russky Laminat (??????? ???????), which operates from Igorevskoe in Russia and is also a customer of long-standing, ordered a further MDF production plant. The latter forming and press line includes an 8th-generation ContiRoll with pressure distribution plates and is sized 9' x 50.4 m; it is to be delivered before the end of the year. Siempelkamp has also received an order for an OSB production plant from a customer operating in eastern Asia.
The winning streak continues: as recently as a few weeks ago, Yildiz Entegre Agac Sanayi Ve Ticaret A.S. Kocaeli, another long-standing Siempelkamp customer, placed orders for two new MDF/HDF production lines for its plants in Russia and Romania.
Six other wood-processing manufacturers have also ordered Siempelkamp's products. Customers based in eastern Europe have ordered two particleboard production plants while another customer in Asia has also placed an order for an 8' x 23.5 m MDF production plant with ContiRoll.
VRG Dong Wha Vietnam, which is also a regular Siempelkamp customer, already placed an order for an MDF concept with an 8' x 25.5 m plant and 8th-generation ContiRoll system in August.
Siempelkamp has also been able to record further positive news in the particleboard industry.
One 7‘ x 33.8 m plant with 8th-generation ContiRoll is to be delivered to Kronospan to replace one of the last 13-daylight Becker & Van Hüllen presses with Schenck/Flexoplan forming and loader systems that remain in operation there.
Siempelkamp is also currently installing an additional 6‘ x 32.1 particlebard production plant with ContiRoll and pressure-distribution technology for PG Bison, another long-standing customer, which is based in South Africa.
