"The process of commissioning the first CPS+ was absolutely seamless," said Bernd Bielfeldt, Dieffenbacher head of the Wood Business Unit. Only two weeks after first board production, Koronospan increased production to three shifts, citing the reliability of its CPS+ press.”

Dieffenbacher began development of the new generation of presses in 2014. One ambitious goal was to improve the thickness tolerances of manufactured boards. Due to the modular frame with its new arrangement of press cylinders, the CPS+ ensures perfectly even distribution of pressure when pressing the board.

Two CPS+ project commissions in Thailand are currently in place. Dieffenbacher has sold 11 plants featuring the new CPS+ press.
