Kastamonu Entegre and Siempelkamp announce assembly work on the new forming and press line with the 7'-x-37.1-metre ninth-generation ContiRoll® for the production of particleboard in Samsun, Turkey. This leading producer of wood-based boards also placed an order in July for a modernisation package for its Siempelkamp MDF line in Kastamonu City to be installed at the end of 2020.
The assembly work with startup scheduled for early 2021 means that the continuous forming and press line in Samsun – which is intended to replace the existing particleboard line at the Yontas location that was acquired in 2009 – is now entering its home straight. Pallmann, which is also one of Siempelkamp’s subsidiaries, will be supplying the knife-ring flakers – two MicroFlaker™ and two MacroFlaker systems as well as a knife-ring flaker for dry particle preparation at each location.
An automatic setting and knife-ring grinding robot by Pallmann for automatically sharpening the blunt knives in the ring constitutes an additional part of the scope of delivery.
