Starwood Orders Thin-Board Plant 

Turkish wood-based materials manufacturer Starwood has ordered its second thin-board plant for the production of thin MDF/HDF to be built near Inegöl. The new plant is designed to run at 2,000 mm/s.

The core of the scope of supply is the continuous press line to be supplied by Siempelkamp. The 9th-generation ContiRoll is 8 ft. x 28.8 m. Besides a flexible infeed, the press is equipped with a hydraulic concept developed for thin and ultra-thin board production and lightweight board package for furniture board production. Also included in the delivery range is a fiber dryer from Siempelkamp subsidiary Büttner, as well as the glue dosing system including Ecoresinator. The Ecoresinator installed in Starwood’s first thin board line in 2010 was the first of its kind and the result of a joint development project between the two companies.

With this plant, Starwood will operate five Siempelkamp continuous press lines—two for particleboard production and three for MDF.

Assembly will start in mid-2021, with the goal to produce the first board is planned for end of 2021.
