NEW DELHI, India – Engineered wood manufacturer Action Tesa ordered a forming and press line including a 8’ x 27.1m ContiRoll press as well as other components, such as the sifter, cooling and stacking line, and a high-stack storage system, for an MDF/HDF plant. The contracting party is Belaji Action Buildwell in New Delhi, a company of the Action Group which has already applied several innovations in the area of wood-based material production in India. Examples include the first MDF/HDF plant for thin boards and the largest particleboard plant.
The company Action Tesa has played a leading role in numerous industries for 44 years. While in the early years shoe production was one of their core markets, the company is now established in many other industries such as the steel & energy, chemical, real estate, health care, and electronics. In the wood-based materials industry the company is well positioned in the production of MDF/HDF and particleboard and has manufactured on both multi-opening and calendar presses. The boards produced comply with the emission standards E1 and E0 for formaldehyde. The equipment includes impregnation lines for melamine papers, powder coating facilities, doorskin, and short cycle press lines. For the first time, Action Tesa decided for continuous board production according to Siempelkamp standard. “We are looking forward to enhancing our scope of supply with a plant according to the well-known German level of quality and to expanding our technological advance,” says Vivek Jain, Director Action Tesa.
“What makes this order particularly pleasing is the fact that Action represents a driver of innovation in the wood-based materials industry. The corresponding demands on partners and suppliers are also high. We satisfy these needs reliably with our ContiRoll technology,” adds Samiron Mondal, Managing Director at Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau. The installation is scheduled to begin mid-2017. After startup and acceptance, the new Siem-pelkamp plant will manufacture boards with a thickness ranging from 2 to 35 mm. The plant is designed for a daily capacity of 750 m³.
