Siempelkamp reports success for customer symposium in Turkey

Siempelkamp’s third customer symposium in Istanbul, Turkey

Siempelkamp has concluded their third customer symposium in Istanbul, Turkey from 20-21 Oct 2022 with more than 120 participants.

Siempelkamp Logistics and Service, Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, and subsidiaries Büttner and Pallmann exchanged ideas with the Turkish customers and their technical teams on site and to present the latest developments, trends, and services.

Stephan Niggeschmidt, managing director of Siempelkamp Logistics and Service, and the Siempelkamp’s Sales and Service team presented concepts for spare parts supply and flexibly designed modernisation packages that aim to optimise existing plant technology.

With more than 35 ContiRoll lines in operation in the Turkish market, there is potential for both sides to maintain cooperation at a high performance level in the long term.

The presentation of the Prod-IQ software family was reportedly met with interest. In particular, the partnership with Smartech for the joint development of Prod-IQ · SmartPress was a highlight.

“This concept will enable wood-based panel plant operators to realise unimagined benefits by unlocking the potential in the data, enabling Prod-IQ · SmartPress to further increase the productivity of their plants,” explained Niggeschmidt.

Ulrich Kaiser, head of technical sales at Siempelkamp, offered insights into new trends and products in his presentation: “In a booming market with an extremely high level of construction activity, oriented strand board (OSB) products for the construction sector are thus now developing as an attractive solution in addition to medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and particleboard for the furniture industry, which will also be very popular in the packaging industry and other sectors.”

Other presentations included technical innovations in the field of dryers by Büttner, who is cooperating with German company New Eco-Tec in the area of belt dryer technology.

Pallmann presented on EcoPulser, an energy-efficient size reduction process based on sonic shock waves works without contact.

Faruk Şişci, general manager of Siempelkamp’s Turkish representative office, concluded: “This was an excellent event which our customers followed with great interest in all presentations. Siempelkamp has very many friends in Turkey. We will be happy to repeat this symposium in the future.”
