In April 2015, before the official presentation at Ligna, the Metro-Ply Group became the first company to order the newly developed CPS+ continuous press from Dieffenbacher. Less than two years later, on March 20, 2017, the new "PB Line 3" particleboard plant featuring the CPS+ went into operation.

In addition to the press, which measures 2.65 m in width and 40.5 m in length, Dieffenbacher-supplied the drum dryer, the core layer sifter, the forming station with air spreading system - including roller deck, the forming line with prepress, and the entire raw board handling system and the automated raw board storage system.

The Metro-Ply Group will use the new CPS+ plant to produce particleboards for worldwide export. The plant will soon be put into three-shift operation and achieve an annual capacity of over 600,000 cubic metres.

The second CPS+ within the Metro-Ply Group - the third CPS+ sold by Dieffenbacher - will also soon be put into operation. Metro-Ply subsidiary Advance Fiber, based in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, plans to commission a new THDF plant with CPS+ press in the 2Q 2017.
