Ferroplan and Plytec joined forces to deliver a lay-up line, complete with a conveyor system, for Metsä Wood’s plywood mill in Punkaharju. For this joint project, Plytec supplied the lay-up line, while Ferroplan was responsible for the conveyors. The goal was to design a solution for transferring plywood stacks from the lay-up line to the pre-press and from there to a hot press, and to create a conveyor system that does not require a base pallet for the plywood stack.
Ferroplan and Plytec have plenty of experience of working together under their belts. In their joint projects, the companies have been able to focus on their core areas of expertise, enabling them to operate efficiently as relatively small suppliers.
Ferroplan and Plytec have also collaborated efficiently on rectifying any problems identified after commissioning. It is not unusual that small technical changes have to be made in complex projects involving challenging circumstances, but the companies have always risen to the occasion and have broadened their expertise in the process.
The end client, Metsä Wood, was extremely happy with the result, after some fine-tuning. ‘The mill now has an efficient conveyor system, which enables the smooth transfer of goods.
Plytec and Ferroplan are already collaborating on a new, challenging project, designed for a client based in Latvia. The future looks bright for the collaboration partners!
