At the end of April 2015, the largest wood-based panel manufacturer in Thailand awarded the core package of a particle board plant to Dieffenbacher. The scope of supply includes the forming line including air spreading system with roller deck for surface layers, the new CPS+ 265–40.5 press as well as parts of the finishing line and exterior area. The new CPS+ combines proven technology such as the double hinge infeed, the Parallel Press Gap System for optimum press gaps and a modular frame construction for easy installation with new design features. All this makes the CPS+ the most powerful press with the best production tolerances ever produced by Dieffenbacher. Metro-Ply was quickly convinced of the benefits of the CPS+ and was the first to order the new press model. "We are proud to launch the new generation of our successful CPS model in collaboration with Metro", said Holger Ries (South-East Asia Sales) and Christian Dieffenbacher (Head of the Wood Business Unit) during the signing of the contract.
