Dieffenbacher supplies particle board plant to Swiss Krono

Market: Panels
Posted March 17, 2016
Mar 17, 2016. /Lesprom Network/. The Swiss wood-based panel manufacturer Swiss Krono commissioned Dieffenbacher to supply a state-of-the-art particle board plant, Dieffenbacher announced. Planned as a replacement investment, the plant is designed to provide an annual capacity of around 400,000 cubic meter. It is used to manufacture conventional particle boards in thicknesses ranging from 6 to 60 mm, as well as thin boards up to 2.5 mm thick and lower-density lightweight particle boards. The scope of supply includes the gluing system, forming station, forming line, press and diagonal saw. Along with the new CPS+ press—for which five orders have now been received—the plant features additional innovative machine components that could set new standards around the world. "This project includes the most state-of-the-art equipment currently available on the market. We are proud that we were able to win over Swiss Krono with our innovative machine concept", says Bernd Bielfeldt, Head of the Wood Business Unit.

The plant uses the Dieffenbacher EVOjet P gluing system, which was first tested in the field in 2013 and is now established on the market. The EVOjet P achieves glue savings of up to 15% compared to conventional particle board gluing systems. The plant is also equipped with a Formator P — the most innovative forming technology available. The Formator P is a combination of a segmented scalper and a Dieffensor; it is integrated into the forming station. This new forming technology is designed to provide an extremely high forming accuracy. At the heart of the plant is the new CPS+ continuous press with a length of 34.5 m and a width of 2400 mm. The infeed offers highly flexible adjustment options and the press comes with optimized pressure distribution — these are the crucial features that enable superior board tolerances to be achieved. When it comes to automation, Dieffenbacher uses state-of-the-art technology from Siemens (S7-1500 with TIA Portal). Since 2013, Dieffenbacher has been the only plant manufacturer in the field of wood-based panels to implement this future-proof automation solution as standard in its projects.
