Action Tesa orders first continuous press from Siempelkamp

For the first time, Action Tesa in India has decided to go ahead with a continuous board production according to Siempelkamp standard.

An order for a new forming and press line including a 8’ x 27.1m ContiRoll® press as well as other components, such as the sifter, cooling and stacking line, and a high-stack storage system, has been placed for an MDF-/HDF plant.

The company “Action” is well-established in the wood-based panels industry. The MDF/HDF and particleboard it produces comply with the emission standards E1 and E0 for formaldehyde.

To date it has manufactured on both multi-opening and calendar presses, as well as on impregnation lines for melamine papers, powder coating facilities, doorskin and short cycle press lines—but never on a continuous press.

“We are looking forward to enhancing our scope of supply with a plant according to the well-known German level of quality and to expanding our technological ad-vance,” said Vivek Jain, director of Action Tesa.

“What makes this order particularly pleasing is the fact that Action represents a driver of innovation in the wood-based materials industry. The corresponding demands on partners and suppliers are also high. We satisfy these needs reliably with our ContiRoll® technology,” added Samiron Mondal, managing director at Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau.

The installation is scheduled to begin mid-2017. After startup and acceptance, the new Siempelkamp plant will manufacture boards with a thickness ranging from 2 to 35 mm. The plant is designed for a daily capacity of 750 m³.
