An additional feature of the press is the so-called lightweight board package which allows reduced densities of approximately 450kg/m³ instead of the usual 700-750kg/m³.

The press is equipped with additional pull-back cylinders in the high-pressure and calibration zone, thus allowing optimal adjustment of the density profile and the thickness tolerance of the boards even without counter pressure of the fiber mat inside the press.

The ‘sister’ plants are equipped with the same drying, separating and resin blending technology. The prototype of the Ecoresinator, which was tested and made market-ready in the first Starwood MDF plant in 2009, was a natural component of the new order for the customer.

Both plants are earmarked for the subsequent installation of a ContiBoos preheater as part of the forming and press line which will result in increased press outputs.
