Metro Orders New Forming and Press Line Made by Siempelkamp

At the end of October, Metro, one of Thailand's leading wood-based panel producers, confirmed its commitment to Siempelkamp, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, with an order for a new forming and press line for an MDF plant at the Kanchanburi site.

This order continues a long-standing business relationship under new auspices: Metro President Chatchai Piyasombatkul and Christoph Michel, CEO Siempelkamp Group, paved the way for a new joint project - the replacement of a Küsters forming and press line by a new Siempelkamp forming and press line for MDF with an 8' wide ContiRoll® Generation 9. The press is equipped with a thin- and lightboard package. At 2,000mm/s, the press is designed for thin boards produced at high speed. This is where the retrofit option for the Siempelkamp Compactor comes into play, protecting the steel belts in the press and enabling plant operators to achieve significant increases in capacity and quality, especially for the production of thin MDF boards.

The objectives of Metro, founded in the 1950s, include state-of-the-art technology and the supply of world-class quality products. In 2002 the company placed its first order with Siempelkamp and in 2009 Metro placed an order for the first complete Siempelkamp particleboard plant, which produces particleboard at the Nonthaburi site near Bangkok. The current order continues this trusting business relationship. "We are proud to set a new, important milestone in the cooperation between Metro and Siempelkamp with this order - and to demonstrate once again with our established press concept on which level we are able to support our customers", says Christoph Michel.
