The “first board” for the fourth short-cycle press “Kt 700” took place which the Egger Group has ordered from Siempelkamp so far. This milestone demonstrates the continuity in the business relationship of both partners. Egger Rambervillers, production site since 1974, is located in the Vosges mountains and has been part of the Egger Group since 2000. The site with 400 employees produces raw chipboard and melamine resin-coated boards, cut-to-size panels and finished furniture components. It supplies the French, German, Austrian, Swiss, Benelux and Italian markets. The cooperation with Siempelkamp is well established. Among other things, the Egger Group operates a “ContiRoll®” as well as four short-cycle presses made by Siempelkamp in Rambervillers.
The delivery includes a multi-piston short-cycle press (“KT 700”) including raw board and finished board handling with the corresponding automation. The main technical features: 180 pressings per hour, maximum specific pressing pressure 700 N/cm². The heating plate format is 2,200 x 5,700 mm, the number of press pistons 40.
With the newly delivered short-cycle press, Egger is expanding its product range at the Rambervillers location with an essential component in terms of laminating technology due to the many special products.
