Klaipedos Mediena (VMG) placed an order for the combination “RoundTrack® + knife ring” with Siempelkamp Group’s subsidiaries Strothmann Machines & Handling GmbH and Pallmann Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. Reason enough, in particular, to take a closer look at the newly placed services of handling and automation specialist Strothmann for the wood-based materials industry.
Strothmann Machines & Handling GmbH's core competence is handling and automation solutions that are in demand in a wide variety of industries. The company's RoundTrack®systems in Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock bring measurable efficiency advantages for numerous applications.
The technology enables productive and efficient flow assembly, cycle assembly or intralogistics. Thanks to its minimal rolling resistance, the RoundTrack® moves loads weighing thousands of kilograms with high precision; up to 5 tons can be moved manually by one person.
The range of solutions extends from manually pushed trolleys to fully automated, driverless transport systems (AGVs). Strothmann supplies complete systems including control of the trolleys and the most modern standard of safety technology.
The subject of the current cooperation between Strothmann and Pallmann is a RoundTrack® carriage which moves knife rings between the Pallmann knife ring chipper and the sharpening robot.
The plant planned for the Akmene site will go into operation in 2020 as Europe's most modern particleboard production plant with trend-setting technology.
