New milestone in Siempelkamp sales

Assembly work on the new forming and press line with the 7’-x-37.1-metre, ninth-generation ContiRoll for the production of particleboard at Kastamonu Entegre, has started at the end of July.

The leading producer of wood-based boards in Turkey and the seventh-largest in the World also placed an order in July for a modernisation package for its Siempelkamp MDF line in Kastamonu City, to be installed at the end of 2020.

The assembly work was scheduled for early 2021 and this means that the continuous forming and press line in Samsun – which is intended to replace the existing particleboard line at the Yontas location that was acquired in 2009 – is now entering its home straight.

Pallmann, which is also one of Siempelkamp’s subsidiaries, will be supplying the knifering flakers – two MicroFlaker and two MacroFlaker systems as well as a knife-ring flaker for dry particle preparation at each location.

An automatic setting and knife-ring grinding robot by Pallmann for automatically sharpening the blunt knives in the ring constitutes an additional part of the scope of delivery.

Kastamonu is also currently relying on Siempelkamp support at another six locations in Turkey. The modernisation work will be generating considerable added value as it will be enabling significant expansion in its range of products and reduce both raw material costs and raw material input while developing greater potential for itself.

The company currently operates eight Siempelkamp plants using continuous press technology in Turkey, Russia and Italy.
