Two of the world’s leading producers of wood processing products have decided to rely on Siempelkamp’s Prod-IQ® MES-system for all their plants. In accordance with Duratex these producers also rely entirely on Siempelkamp, because of the performance of Prod-IQ®.

Pfleiderer’s goal is to connect the evaluation and performance analysis of the press and sanding lines to the SAP system, which has been achieved excellently in Gütersloh and Neumarkt. This year the plants in Grajewo, Baruth and Wieruszów follow suit.

Next to Siempelkamp’s production machinery, Berneck also favours Siempelkamp’s automation solution competence. In order to implement its digitalisation strategy the management opted for Prod-IQ® for the four existing lines as well as for the new plant in Lages, Brazil. In addition to the SAP connection of the press and sanding line, the scope of services also includes online quality monitoring by Prod-IQ.quality (SPOC). The self-regulating wood-based panel plant is already in use in production today. Sophisticated mechatronic system components enable fully automatic product changeover, highly reliable machine condition monitoring and unique quality assurance.
