Guangxi Xiangsheng Household Materials Technology Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Shuntian International Group Machinery Import and Export Company, and Siempelkamp have signed an equipment purchase agreement for a particleboard production line with an annual output of 300,000 m³.
The plant includes Siempelkamp’s universal flaker, a new process developed by Siempelkamp, which makes it possible to use more economic wood assortments. This process allows the usage of smaller log diameters below 80 mm and other wood assortments. This allows full use to be made of the forest resources in the Chongzou area of Guanxi, Sino-Vietnam border area and Paiyangshan forest farm.
The new production line is committed to producing formaldehyde free and environmentally friendly wood-based panel products.
Siempelkamp will provide the process design and engineering technical guidance for the whole production line, and also provide the core equipment, including the universal flaker, strander, dryer, drum screen, hammermill, oscillating screen, blender, forming and press line and trimming/crosscutting equipment. The plant includes a ContiRoll Generation 9 continuous press with a length of 40 m and a width of 8.5 ft. The first board is expected to be produced by the end of September 2021.
