Siempelkamp at LIGNA 2013
At LIGNA 2013 in Hannover, Germany, the Siempelkamp machine and plant engineering company is presented as a provider for complete wood-based panel production plants for the manufacturing of particleboard, MDF/HDF, and OSB. Together with its subsidiaries Büttner, CMC Texpan, Hombak, Ventapp, and Siempelkamp Logistics & Service, Siempelkamp represents the complete product range including planning, engineering, production, installation, startup, and service.
The strong cooperation within the group of companies allows us to provide, from one source, the complete machinery for the front-end, energy plants, dryers, resin blending and application systems, forming and press lines with the proven ContiRoll® press, cooling and stacking lines, storage systems, sanding and cut-to-size lines, packing lines, and short-cycle presses for surface laminating.
State-of-the-art equipment with a potential for saving
Important components were further technically optimized and geared towards savings. Next to the innovative chippers and flakers by Hombak, the new machine technology used to achieve resin savings of up to 20% in the production of MDF and particleboard plays an especially important role at LIGNA 2013. The innovative wind former integrated in the forming lines of particleboard plants is also expected to attract professionals from the industry.
The key component, however, still is the continuous ContiRoll® press. Meanwhile in the eighth generation, the ContiRoll® features a practically isobaric pressure distribution due to the use of innovative pressure distribution plates, a higher number of cylinders, and differential cylinders that are arranged across the width of the press frames. The improved pressure distribution inside the press leads to material savings of up to 15%. The new pull-back cylinders at the upper hot platen allow the flexible production of lighter boards.
