Dieffenbacher to modernise plants in Germany, Poland and Vietnam

17 November 2020 ` 17:41  

Wood-based panels manufacturing systems provider Dieffenbacher has shared details on a number of plant modernisations projects designed to help panel producers stay competitive.

The Eppingen-based company said one example is the retrofitting of a steam preheater at Pfleiderer’s MDF plant in Baruth, Brandenburg, Germany.

The companies’ collaboration led to Dieffenbacher’s EVOsteam technology installed directly at the press infeed. The EVOsteam preheats the mat by injecting steam, reducing the time needed to heat the mat inside the press, accelerating production.

The technology will also be used to boost particleboard production for Vina Eco Board Co Ltd in the province of Long An, Vietnam.

Vina Eco Board also commissioned Dieffenbacher to convert the forming station of the same line. By installing roller screens in both wind formers, spreading accuracy is improved, leading to better surface quality of the produced boards. Installation and commissioning of both modernization projects are scheduled for summer/fall 2021.

Another forming station conversion is underway for Pfleiderer at its Grajewo site in northeastern Poland, where it produces MDF and particleboard.
