Siempelkamp has announced that its new oriented strand board (OSB) line with a ContiRoll press in the 4ft x 33.8m format, extendable to 48.7m, has produced its first board by Turkish wood-based panel producer Küpeliler Endüstri.
According to Siempelkamp, the continuous press technology optimises both thickness tolerances and mechanical properties compared to conventional cycle press lines.
The OSB-ContiFinish also aims to offer optimal surface quality and, in general, high-quality OSB, to be used by Küpeliler Endüstri primarily in the construction industry, for example, in the form of cladding.
“We, Team Siempelkamp, not only congratulate our partner warmly on this milestone, but also say a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for the great cooperation. It was a pleasure to be able to implement this project together and to set a new benchmark in the Turkish market with this premiere,” said Ulrich Kaiser, head of sales for wood and new plants at Siempelkamp.
