Dieffenbacher smart-tunes production efficiency

Germany-based Dieffenbacher’s smart plant concept ‘Cebro’ uses a holistic approach and combines the digital platform, Evoris, and advanced plant engineering with operational excellence and sustainability solutions.

Evoris enables wood-based panel manufacturers to digitalise their production plant-wide, independent of make and manufacturer. With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), the apps support continuous monitoring, prediction and optimisation of production processes.

Comprehensive analysis of live data helps operators better understand their plants and make important decisions more quickly.

The results are higher plant availability, optimised board quality, fewer rejects, reduced use of wood, glue and other expensive raw materials, lower production and energy costs, and fewer CO2 emissions.

Cebro’s advanced plant engineering solutions help customers create smart synergies within a plant. Intelligent heat recovery concepts, including reusing heat from the press and dryer exhaust air in the production process, are just one of many ideas to reduce energy costs and emissions and increase profit.

To help manufacturers achieve operational excellence, it uses optimised processes and advanced technologies. Examples include a new forming station for particleboard production that improves board quality through increased spreading accuracy; the EVO steam pre-heater, which increases capacity by up to 20%; and the new belt dryer, which is particularly sustainable due to its low thermal energy consumption. The use of low-calorific energy from waste heat also helps to save costs.

It also helps manufacturers find the right balance between economic and sustainability goals to build a better future for business and the environment. Wood recycling solutions, which help free manufacturers from dependence on fresh wood supplies, are one way that the company supports economic success and sustainability. Others include smart environmental and new energy-generation technologies that save costs, cut emissions and reduce a   plant’s carbon footprint.
