Posted September 28, 2017

The U.S. company Roseburg Forest Products has contracted with Dieffenbacher to supply the microwave preheating system, continuous press and stacking system for its new LVL plant in Chester, South Carolina, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

With a daily output of 800 m³, the more-than-65-m long CPS will be the world's largest continuous LVL press as measured by production capacity. The upstream 600 kW microwave will be the most powerful preheating system of this type in LVL production.

Roseburg has earmarked a total investment of $200 million for its new LVL production line. Construction starts in the 1Q 2018. Production of the first board is planned for 2019.
