The multi-opening plant, in operation since 1996, was one of the first OSB production plants in Western Europe. After more than 20 years of operation, it will be replaced by a continuous production line with CPS+.

In addition to the press, the order also covers the forming station, the forming line, the finishing line (comprising a diagonal saw, large stack formation and large stack storage) as well as the conveyor technology, the filter systems and the press exhaust air treatment.

The execution and supervision of the assembly are also included in the Dieffenbacher scope of supply.

This cutting-edge plant was planned entirely using 3D design tools. This allowed Dieffenbacher to fine-tune the plant structure. Commissioning is set for autumn 2018.

Sanem will be the sixth OSB project completed by Dieffenbacher for Kronospan in less than 15 years.
