Siempelkamp experiences perfect collaboration with Dexco Agudos

Published on :Tuesday, November 16, 2021

Siempelkamp has produced the first board in a short cycle press line at Dexco’s Agudos location in a record time of only three months following the start of assembly. The contract for the current project was signed in November 2020; 73 days after the arrival of the last container and thus in record time the first board was produced.

The plant has a capacity of 240 cycles per hour. The project was realised by Siempelkamp teams from Brazil, Germany, and the Czech Republic together with the Dexco team. The customer describes the collaborative work from project planning through engineering and assembly to the actual commissioning as “perfect symphony and collaboration”. Due to Corona, not all Siempelkamp employees traveled to Brazil for the first board – however, a live broadcast ensured that the German Siempelkamp team was able to experience the event digitally and congratulate its Brazilian partner most sincerely.

The collaboration between Dexco and Siempelkamp is not new. This short-cycle press line is the fourth one from Siempelkamp that Dexco (formerly Duratex) is building at the Agudos location. In addition, the Brazilian wood-based panel producer operates eight Siempelkamp plants with ContiRoll® press technology; Duratex ordered the first ContiRoll® 25 years ago.
