Caul screens for the wood-processing industry

Beside conveyor belts, caul screens are also used for various applications in the timber industry. The rugged metal meshes from the FLEXOPLAN® range are the first choice for multi-stage presses in the wood-processing industry. This special mesh was developed in cooperation with the mechanical engineering sector for extreme conditions in daylight presses. Whether used as a caul screen or as a revolving conveyor belt, it performs its duties meticulously in the manufacture of chipboard, MDF, or OSB boards. All FLEXOPLAN® plates and belts are produced individually based on customer requirements.

Whether OSB boards with defined surface coarseness or chipboard/MDF boards with a smooth surface: the FLEXOPLAN 163 and FLEXOPLAN 452 KP Special mesh types have been demonstrating their effectiveness in stationary single and multi-stage presses for decades.
