New MDF forming and press line for Borg

“Down under” relies on the ContiRoll®: Borg Manufacturing Pty Ltd. ordered a new MDF forming and press line for its Oberon site. The leading Australian producer of melamine-coated boards did not opt for Siempelkamp support for the first time.

Borg Manufacturing Pty Ltd. replaces an old multi-opening line with an MDF forming and press line including an in 8’ × 18.8 m ContiRoll® with lightboard package. The order volume also includes a Siempelkamp Compactor, which provides effective protection for the steel belts in the press and provides plant operators with significant capacity and quality improvements, especially for the production of thin MDF boards. Also included is the connection to the existing high-bay warehouse, which retains the existing fiber preparation of the old plant.

The production spectrum will include boards in a thickness range from 1 to 25 mm. The use of the lightboard-package also enables the production of particularly lightweight fibreboards. Borg can thus rely on a diversified product range with a wide range of thicknesses and densities.

LIGNA 2019 marked an important milestone for the current order as well as for a previous one: While negotiations for the new MDF plant started at the time of the trade fair, the Siempelkamp plant for the production of particleboard ordered in 2016 was accepted by Borg in New South Wales. With Siempelkamp Pty Ltd., the Australian Siempelkamp representative office is, once again, represented directly on site to ensure smooth processes and reliable support.
