Dieffenbacher received the order for a fully automated LFT-D plant for China.

The project partner is a newly established joint venture of the companies CSP and Victall. The American company CSP (Continental Structural Plastics), to whom Dieffenbacher has supplied ten presses and six LFT-D plants over the course of a long-standing partnership, is a major global supplier of composite components in the automotive industry. The Chinese company Victall operates primarily in the field of railway engineering. The new plant will enable the partners to expand their range of components for China's rapidly growing automotive industry.

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. Services such as maintenance, installation and commissioning will also be provided by Dieffenbacher China. The LFT-D production line will be put into operation in Tangshan, a major industrial city in the north of China. The plant supplies components in a 30 second cycle and with double belt-loading, it has an output of approximately one million components a year.

With this order, Dieffenbacher once again emphasizes its strong market position in China.
