MDF plant destined for Brazil

MDF plant destined for Brazil

Placas do Brasil has ordered a THDF/MDF plant with an annual capacity of 300,000 m³. Start of operation is scheduled for end of 2017/early 2018.

The order encompasses the complete process from fiber drying to the finishing line, with a new CPS+ press as the key component. Since introducing the CPS+ press in May 2015, Dieffenbacher has sold seven of the systems. More orders are expected in the near future.

The plant’s front end includes the fiber dryer and sifter, a PROjet gluing system, a forming station and a forming line complete with pre-press and Formator M. Formator M is a combination of a segmented scalper and a Dieffensor. This innovative combination creates extremely precise matt weight tolerances. The 33 m CPS+ press shall produce boards with a width of up to 2750 mm and a thickness of 2.5 to 40 mm.

For the finishing line area, the order also includes a raw-board handling system with diagonal saw, a board cooler, a billet stacking system, a raw-board storage system, a sanding line with trimming and splitting saw.

Additionally, there are plans to retrofit an EVOjet M dry resin blending system. The EVOjet M can achieve glue savings of up to 25% compared to a conventional blow line. Furthermore the CPS+ is designed for an extension to 39 m.

About the project

The project is an initiative of SINDIMOL (Sindicato da Indústria de Madeira e Móveis de Linhares e Norte do Espírito Santo — the Wood and Furniture Industry Association of Linhares and Norte do Espírito Santo), which aims to establish a cost-effective MDF plant in the region to enable its members to become more competitive. The project also includes a 18,000-ha wooded area containing eucalyptus trees, ensuring a supply of wood for the MDF plant.
