Siempelkamp will supply a complete plant from the debarking equipment to the stacking of the finished boards.

A 4ft x 33.3m Generation 8 ContiRoll® press will be the centrepiece of this order. The boards produced on this press will have a dimension of 4 x 8ft and therefore can be placed on the market without the need for a saw system.

Siempelkamp’s 4ft press, the smallest reprsentative of the ContiRoll family, combines all the features of the larger presses while the flexible infeed head, in particular, makes it possible to also produce thin MDF.

Siempelkamp is pleased about this order from VRG which was received despite tough competition from China due to Siempelkamp’s convincing concept to supply plants from a single source.
