Our answer to Industry 4.0

Prepared for the future
Digital and smart solutions

Optimized production, more efficiency, higher plant availability – this is ensured by the current Siempelkamp developments, which can be integrated into existing plants either as part of modernizations, modifications or as standalone solutions.

Overview
Our Service 4.0 innovations

Following a first impression of the range of our Service 4.0 offer. It includes both digital solutions, e.g. the modular MES-tool Prod-IQ®, as well as mechanical components that make your production smarter.

24/7 remote system specially developed for industrial applications for an immediate, swift and secure analysis of the plant’s state.

Advantages:

  • Secure connection via VPN
  • Plant access exclusively after service request by the operator
  • Access only to previously released plant components
  • Automatic documentation of the service
  • User-friendly handling

Mat preheating system that injects up to 750 kg/h of saturated steam with a temperature ranging between 100 and 130°C into each side of the mat, directly heating up the surface layers

Advantages:

  • Increased production capacity by 10 to 20%
  • Energy savings due to reduced pressing pressure
  • Material savings
  • Can be retrofitted into existing plants with ContiRoll® presses of all generations due to compact design

Product page ContiBooster®

Component for improving the forming accuracy in the area of the surface layer mat formers in particleboard plants

Advantages:

  • Better mat forming in longitudinal and transverse direction
  • Reduced production costs due to optimal use of wood, glue, electrical and thermal energy

Product page EcoFormer

Glue/fiber blending system with convincing advantages: significant material savings, low operating costs, technological flexibility

Advantages:

  • Up to 15% less glue consumption
  • Precise metering of the glue mix using intelligent control
  • Reduced production costs
  • No downtime, since cleaning automatism is integrated
  • Low investment costs, as the upstream and downstream equipment do not require modification

Product page Ecoresinator

Clear, multidimensional visualization able to localize forming errors and tramp material in the mat, for detecting process-caused faulty mat sections containing density deviations and to detect even the smallest tramp material (1.6 mm)

Advantages:

  • Fast absorption measurement method
  • Detection of smallest variations in weight per unit area
  • Most effective protection of downstream press components (e.g., steel belt protection)

Product page EcoScan NEO

Modularly designed data management system for systematic increase of productivity

Advantages:

  • Optimized material consumption, less waste, lower production costs
  • Consistent product quality
  • Faster provision of all necessary data at all the right places
  • Increase of plant availability, reduction of production costs

Product page Prod-IQ®

System for measuring of various production parameters such as mat moisture/weight or board thickness and continuous optimization of the production process

Advantages:

  • Material and resource savings
  • More safety at the workplace
  • Highest precision in board production
  • Continuous quality control

Product page SicoCam

Intelligent system for controlling the desired press forces and distances in the technological press zones of the ContiRoll®

Advantages SPC G9:

  • State-of-the art hardware technology
  • Outstanding computing power
  • Replaces first and second generation SPC systems in the course of upgrades of existing plants without any problems

Product page SPC G9

System for measuring of various production parameters such as mat moisture/weight or board thickness and continuous optimization of the production process

Advantages:

  • Can be fully integrated into existing systems
  • Reliable and uniform data
  • Increased plant availability
  • Higher profitability

Product page SicoScan

Automatic product change without opening of mat reject nose or production stop

Advantages:

  • Significantly reduced rejects
  • Safe handling, changeover only after process release
  • Precise position tracking of the material flow
  • Fast ROI

Product page Sequential product change SPC

System for non-contact, low-wear size reduction of wood chips and production of chips and surface-layer material

Advantages:

  • High energy efficiency
  • Extremely low machine wear
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Reduced risk of explosion
  • High resistance against impurities

Our understanding of Service 4.0
Solutions for the future

Markets and technologies are in a state of change, digital transformation is in full swing – keyword Industry 4.0. As a result, what is required of developers and service providers as we are is constantly changing. Our goal: Not only to respond to this progress, but also to actively promote it for the benefit of our customers, towards a Service 4.0. We achieve this in several ways: firstly, thanks to our own concepts developed to continuously improve our service, secondly, with the answers to the requirements of customers and projects and then, of course, with the innovations standing for best “German Engineering” as Siempelkamp technologies.


Applied Service 4.0
Example process automation

An example for actually implemented Service 4.0 is the automation of business processes. In concrete terms this means that flows of information and goods between you as our customer and the SLS as your supplier are standardized. The result: Processes become much more efficient, your operating costs decrease. Under the following link you can find out in detail about the advantages of these connected processes:
