Dieffenbacher is proud to be one of the biggest exhibitors in the German Pavilion at IndiaWood 2018. The team around Sachin Pendharkar, the new Director of Dieffenbacher India Pvt. Ltd., is excited to meet their Indian and international guests at booth A116, located on the upper level of Hall 1. The Dieffenbacher booth will focus on complete panel plants for every budget and every need with multi-opening, continuous and short-cycle laminating presses, and equipment for processing alternative raw materials such as bamboo, bagasse and straw.
“To date, MDF and particleboard together account for only 7% of the total Indian wood-based panel market, leaving much space for potential growth. Due to decreasing profits for plywood producers, the market is rapidly changing now. MDF and particleboard production is growing at 15-20%year-over-year. The biggest challenges for companies investing in MDF and particleboard technology are the sourcing of raw material and resource efficiency. Dieffenbacher can help with technology for processing alternative raw materials like bagasse, straw or bamboo and our many proven solutions to improve plant efficiency.” says, Sachin Pendharkar, Director of Dieffenbacher India Pvt. Ltd.
While every investment has budgetary limits, plant efficiency is always essential. With its huge portfolio, including machines from Dieffenbacher SWPM in China, Dieffenbacher can select the most appropriate technical and commercial solution for every need. From small but reliable multi-opening press solutions to high-end continuous solutions, Dieffenbacher will deliver everything from one source. India references prove this promise with plants ranging from small but very efficient multi-opening plants to the longest continuous press in Asia—the 56-meter-long CPS designed to produce1.400 m³ of high-quality MDF boards per day for Greenply Industries in Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh.
Creating individual solutions for every customer is not only about budget and size; it’s also about different types of input material. The importance of alternative raw materials such as bamboo and bagasse is steadily growing. Indian customers can take advantage of Dieffenbacher’s expertise in developing equipment to process alternative raw materials, specifically annual plants and fast-growing species such as bagasse and bamboo. A good example is Krifor’s PB bagasse plant in Gujarat. Krifor produce stop-quality bagasse-based particleboard on a Dieffenbacher plant with a European-made forming station and a Dieffenbacher SWPM multi-opening press.
