Kastamonu Entegre celebrated the acceptance of its new particleboard plant with Generation 9 ContiRoll® at the Samsun location in Turkey.
Start of assembly in July 2020, completed dry run in January 2021, first board at the end of February – on May 1st, the so far most important milestone in the implementation of the project was reached.
KEAS started three-shift operation only 18 days after the first board – one week earlier than scheduled. The nominal output for the main product was achieved shortly after the start of the three-shift operation; due to the excellent know-how of the customer's team, it was already possible to operate with design parameters until acceptance.
In addition, the entire production range from 6 to 35 m boards was pre-run; the press line produces safely and reliably up to the design speed of 1,200 mm/s. A daily capacity of 2,000 m3 has already been reached.
