In February 2015 Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH in Krefeld received an order from the particleboard manufacturer SAIB S.p.A., Italy.
For its existing particleboard plant in Fossadello di Caorso, located in the Piacenze region south-east of Milan, SAIB ordered from Siempelkamp a complete forming and press line as well as the blending system, the cooling and stacking line and an intermediate storage system.
The new plant technology is adjusted to the raw material; SAIB uses 100% recovered wood for its particleboard production. The Siempelkamp scope of supply for SAIB starts with the resin blending system and in-cludes the dosing bunker, the resin blender as well as the resin preparation and dosing system. As resin SAIB uses formaldehyde-free melamine-urea resin exclusively.
Downstream of the press Siempelkamp will supply a double-diagonal saw, a cooling and stacking line as well as an intermediate storage system which will be connected to the existing finishing line. The Siempelkamp package is completed with measurement and control technology components, the steel structure, the wiring as well as the transport, installation and startup. The installation of the new Siempelkamp plant is scheduled to begin in October of this year already.
