Tableros Hispanos is modernising the Nadela multi-opening plant and has commissioned Dieffenbacher to upgrade the existing plant.
The first stage will include the upgrading of the forming station, forming line, press and raw board handling system. This package, which includes a CPS+, was ordered in October 2017. A new short-cycle laminating line will be supplied by Dieffenbacher Zaisenhausen.
Tableros Hispanos is a subsidiary of Grupo Martín, the largest trader of wood-based panels and accessories for the wood and furniture industry in Peru. It subsequently took over the Spanish wood-based panel manufacturer TABLICIA located in Nadela in the Galician province of Lugo. It resumed particleboard production at the in Nadela in June 2014.
"With the modernisation of our particleboard production in Nadela, we are setting the course for the future,” said Tableros Hispanos CEO Simón Távara Guerrero. “We are convinced that the future-proof and efficient technologies from Dieffenbacher will both secure and expand our competitiveness. By choosing CPS+, we have deliberately opted for the gold standard in efficient continuous press systems."
Because the existing material preparation line will not be modernised in the first stage, the capacity of the new plant will initially be limited to 1,000 m³/day. There are, however, plans to expand capacity to approx. 1,500 m³/day in the future. Assembly will begin in the fourth quarter of 2018.
