Wisewoods relies on CEBRO MDF plant delivered by DIEFFENBACHER

Thai MDF producer Wisewoods Co. Ltd. is expanding its production capacity at the company’s headquarters in Khao Yoi in the province of Phetchaburi, with the new CEBRO MDF plant delivered by DIEFFENBACHER. Plant assembly has been underway since January 2024, with the first board production scheduled for the third quarter.

In keeping with DIEFFENBACHER’s CEBRO smart plant concept, the new plant will use Z-Sifter technology and the PROjet glue-saving system to help Wisewoods achieve operational excellence, one of CEBRO’s four pillars.

Wisewoods exclusively uses rubberwood fibers as the raw material for its MDF boards. “Before processing rubberwood, it’s important that the latex components are eliminated from the raw material,” says Visarut Palarit, Deputy Director at Wisewoods. “The unique Z-Sifter technology was a key reason we chose DIEFFENBACHER for our new MDF plant,” he adds. “The many Z-shaped sifting stages of the DIEFFENBACHER Z-Sifter provide a sharp separation line, making the separation of lighter rubberwood particles possible. With its high sifting efficiency and low power consumption due to the proven airflow management system, the Z-Sifter is Southeast Asia companies’ first choice of latex removal technology,” explains Holger Ries, Area Sales Director at DIEFFENBACHER. “The Z-Sifter also efficiently eliminates other contaminants such as wood residues, glue lumps, fiber deposits, minerals and metals from the fiber flow. This ensures high-quality board surfaces and protects downstream machinery from damage, especially when producing thin board,” he continues.

PROjet is an MDF blow-line gluing system that delivers resin savings of up to 15% compared to conventional blow-line technology. It’s applicable for both UF and MUF resin. With PROjet, MDF manufacturers can produce board surfaces with fewer resin spots.

DIEFFENBACHER will also supply Wisewoods with the glue preparation and dosing system, the forming station and forming line, a CPS+ continuous press and the raw board handling system. The contract with Wisewoods also includes plant electrics and automation.
