The Turkish wood-based panel producer Küpeliler Endustri As placed orders for two new plants with Siempelkamp: firstly, the first continuous Osb plant to be assembled in Turkey, secondly, a new particleboard plant.
The scope of supply includes a “ContiRoll” in the format 4′ x 33.8 m, extendable to 45.4 m, which replaces an existing plant at the Kutahya location. The new Siempelkamp plant will support Küpeliler Endustri As in increasing its board quality and implementing higher plant availability.
The company thus provides attractive alternatives to expensive plywood and serves the rapidly growing demand from the construction and packaging industries. The quality of the OSB panels is enhanced by the special surface finish, the “Osb ContiFinish“. The improved thickness tolerances and optimized mechanical properties achieved with the continuous press technology also have a positive effect compared with conventional cycle press system boards.
The second new order was placed by Küpeliler Endustri with its German partner for its particleboard division. It comprises a line with a “ContiRoll” in the format 7′ x 23.8 m, extendable to 28,8 m. This new investment replaces a single-level line at the Eskişehir site, which has been in production for 40 years.
