Dieffenbacher has received an order to supply a fully automated LFT-D plant for China.
The project partner is a newly established joint venture of the companies CSP and Victall. The new plant is expected to enable the partners to expand their range of components for China's rapidly growing automotive industry.
According to Dieffenbacher, the scope of supply includes a 4300 t press with a punch press, in-line compounding, convection ovens and complete automation. A large portion of the plant will be built in the Dieffenbacher production plant in Shanghai.
