Pallmann achieves global success with wood shredding technologies31 October 2011
Heavy investments in the development of modern size reduction and process technologies for the wood processing industry are now paying off with numerous international orders for the Pallmann Group operating in Zweibrücken, Germany.
Customers in Russia, Asia, South America and new European Union countries top the list.
Pallmann’s main focus is on complex plants for the production of wood fibre or chips that are used in particleboard, MDF, OSB and other wood based products.
Aside from orders for a variety of individual machines, complete projects are also in demand.
In Chile, for example, the Arauco group has ordered two complete timber yard plants with rotary bark strippers and chippers, and including the complete machining technology and grinding robot for its sites in Yangay and Teno.
Also being delivered this year will be machining technology and timber yard technology for particleboard production by another customer,Yildiz Entegre in Manisa.
In Mendoza, Argentina, a new particleboard plant operated by Cuyoplacas relies on Pallmann for rotary bark strippers and drum chippers, as well as its entire machining technology.
Another major project for Pallmann is a new MDF plant in Apscheronsk, Russia. This incorporates a large refiner, wood chip washing system and complete timber yard. Delivery of the system is already underway.
