August 2015 saw Dieffenbacher achieve success once again with two new orders. Italian furniture and board manufacturer Fantoni Spa ordered a MDF plant, while the second order was for a particle board plant and came from furniture manufacturer Ganzhou Aigesen in China. These two new orders take the total number of plants Dieffenbacher has sold this year to nine.
Fantoni is using its new MDF plant to replace two multi-opening lines at its main site in Osoppo. As part of the scope of supply for this new plant, Dieffenbacher will also provide modifications on the existing fiber dries and two new fiber sifters. The core package includes a forming station equipped with the latest generation of mechanical forming equipment, a forming line and a CPS 240 – 65.5 continuous MDF press. The 65.5 meter long CPS produces boards with a width between 1830 and 2200 mm and a thickness of between 6 and 60 mm. The components supplied in the finishing line area include a raw board handling system with triple diagonal saw, a board cooling and stacking system as well as a modification to an existing raw board storage system. The plant is designed to deliver an annual output of 460,000 m³. Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2016.
The modern particle board plant equipped with a CPS destined for Ganzhou Aigesen is intended to replace a small multi-opening plant in the city of Ganzhou in Jiangxi Province, south-eastern China. In terms of raw material, the furniture manufacturer predominantly uses wood waste from its own facilities for producing boards and furniture, as well as purchased recycled wood. Two Windformer SL units for the surface layer and a core layer forming head will be supplied within the forming station. The CPS 265 – 24 press produces boards with a width of up to 2480 mm and a thickness of between 6 and 40 mm. The components supplied in the finishing line area include a diagonal saw and a trimming and splitting saw. The plant is designed to deliver an annual output of 270,000 m³. Start-up is planned for the end of 2016 or the start of 2017. Ganzhou Aigesen is a large furniture and board manufacturer in China and produces boards for their own needs as well as for sale.
