To manufacture the world’s longest continuous press
With the construction of
a 80-meter-long CPS+, Dieffenbacher will set a world record for the longest
continuous press used to produce wood-based panels. The press is the core
component of an MDF plant ordered from Dieffenbacher in July by Chinese
wood-based panels manufacturer Guangxi Lelin Forestry Development Co, Ltd.
“In planning the world’s
largest MDF plant, we are excited to have Dieffenbacher at our side once again
as a project partner,” said Guangxi Lelin President Wei Mingkuai. A high-speed
THDF plant in Nanning that produces up to 1 mm thin boards was ordered by
Guangxi Lelin from Dieffenbacher in June 2018 and commissioned in October 2019.
“We are extremely
satisfied with the performance of our THDF line and the support provided by Dieffenbacher
before, during and after the construction of the plant. They have fully earned
the trust we placed in them,” Wei Mingkuai said. “True to the motto ‘never
change a winning team,’ Dieffenbacher was the logical choice for our new
project. We look forward to deepening our partnership.”
In addition to the CPS+,
Dieffenbacher will supply equipment ranging from the air grader to the storage
system. With state-of-the-art automation and control systems, the MDF line will
meet the highest demands of digitalization.
Plant construction is scheduled to start in the second
quarter of 2021 in the southern Chinese city of Chongzuo, not far from the
Vietnamese border. Start-up is planned for fall 2021.
