Order won for OSB line from Hui Dian
Siempelkamp, one of the leading system suppliers for press technology, has convinced a new customer in China of its competence. The customer is the wood-based materials producer Jiangsu Hui Dian New Materials Co., LTD, who has commissioned Siempelkamp to supply a production line for OSB and is striving for a close partnership with its supplier. The plant is located in Shuyang, in the Chinese province of Jiangsu. About 350 kilometers north of this - in Qingdao - is one of the two Chinese plants of the Siempelkamp Group.
The core of the production line is a Generation 8 "Contiroll" in the format 8.5´ x 38.8 meters. A special feature of this line is the possibility of also producing so-called coatable OSB boards. At its core similar to OSB, this new product has a fine chipboard top layer comparable to a furniture chipboard. The specially equipped moulding line has, among other things, five spreading machines. The scope of supply also includes screening and resizing with "Ecopulser", glue dosing and gluing up to the double diagonal saw and the "Sicoscan" quality measuring systems, thickness measurement and control, space detection and board scales. Production management is managed with the Siempelkamp process control system "Prod-IQ".
Installation of the plant will start in spring 2020. After full commissioning, the operator will produce around 300,000 cubic meters of OSB boards per year.
"For me, orders like this are an important confirmation of our strategy to strengthen our presence in China. This is a focus of global demand that we are meeting with suitable offers and local resources. It is particularly gratifying that we were again able to convince a new customer of our offer," said Christoph Michel, spokesman for the management of Siempelkamp-Holding.
