The order for the particleboard plant includes the forming and press line with a 9th generation 8ft x 30.5m ContiRoll® press. The machinery is driven by the innovative drive concept ContiRoll Ecodrive, the new standard drive for the ContiRoll.

The scope of supply for this order also includes a cooling and stacking line as well as a storage system. The system will be especially suited for the processing of formaldehyde-free resins, this being a special advantage for SciSky because of the company’s commitment to non-toxic living environments.

SciSky, which is headquartered in Lanzhou in the north-west Chinese province of Gansù, is a global supplier of home decorations and furniture. From now on SciSky will conquer new markets in the wood based materials industry with the first plant at the Wuming location in the province of Guangxi. This plant will manufacture wood based panels as well as furniture.

The expertise of the Siempelkamp subsidiaries Pallmann Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co KG in Zweibrücken, Germany, and CMC Texpan in Colzate, Italy, were also in demand for this order.

The size reduction specialist Pallmann contributes five knife ring flakers, two surface layer mills, and one sanding robot, while CMC Texpan will bring its expertise in front-end technology.

The installation of the plant is scheduled for May 2018 with start-up October 2018.
