Indonesian Fiberboard Industries (IFI), an Indonesia-based MDF and HDF producer, has chosen Sunds Fibertech’s SundsZifter for their latest greenfield MDF factory, which was launched last year.

The installed electrical power per tonne of fibre capacity, as well as the sifting efficiency, is optimised on the latest generation SundsZifter.

According to Sunds Fibertech, the SundsZifter can process up to 30 tonnes of fibre per hour, combining high sifting efficiency with low operation costs, all to process demanding raw materials like rubberwood, used by IFI.

Additionally, the SundsZifter can serve as an optimal retrofit option for older installations utilising different sifting technology

Six months into its operation, Sunds Fibertech conducted a performance and availability review of the SundsZifter with the production manager, Pak Malik. His feedback was:

“We are very happy with Sunds Fibertech’s Zifter. The machine has solved our problem with latex spots on the boards that we have experienced in the past. We can now achieve a minimum of 96% A-Grade boards with very low electrical energy costs on the Zifter. 

“We had very good cooperation with the entire team from Sunds Fibertech and a startup of the Zifter without any problems.”
