The 2nd Wemhoener press short cicle line.

08 September 2022


Middle of August 2022, Rheinspan GmbH & Co. KG, Germersheim, laminated the first board on its new and now the second Wemhöner Short-cycle Press Line in the factory. Today, said line is running under stable production.

The new press line will primarily produce boards of high quality. One topic here are panels with synchronous pore (EIR) on both sides.
The press was designed for a pressure of 700 N/cm² and formats up to 2,250 x 5,600 mm. The focus is on widths of 2,070 mm to 2,200 mm. The lengths will vary between 4,100 mm and 5,600 mm. The first Wemhöner Short-cycle Press Line was commissioned in 1999.
The old press had a specific lamination pressure of max. 350 N/cm². Quote Alexander Kolb, Managing Director Rheinspan: "For us, this is the first big step towards high-quality melamine surfaces. The necessary process technology has come to us virtually 'free of charge' through our new joint venture partner Saviola Group/Italy by choosing Wemhöner as the main supplier for the press line, we have relied on reliable technology.
The company's mechanical engineering competence has been proven over decades and the wealth of experience around this technology is unique worldwide."
