Press release 

(Kongsberg March 24th, 2021) When Pfleiderer, one of the leading companies in the wood industry, wanted to update their production facilities and enhance the quality of their wood panels to an even greater extent, they looked to Argos Solutions in Norway.

Their production facility in Gütersloh, Germany produces chipboards that are finished into decorative panels. To ensure that the quality of the panels meet the strict requirements to the end users, two Argos MFC systems has been installed on site and one is in the final phase of production and testing in Norway.

  • Pfleiderer is a company that does not compromise when it comes to quality, says Dr. Björn König, Executive Manager of the Pfleiderer location in Gütersloh.

The Argos Grading System is a powerful and effective system for automating the inspection of all types of surface defects in decorative surfaces. The optical inspection system checks the surface for the smallest defects and monitors the production process continuously.

    us, this delivery is a great acknowledgment of our competence and ability to deliver modern technology and systems in world class. Our strong relationships with other leading panel board manufacturers in the market gives us experience and an advantage that benefits new customers. We look forward to developing this partnership as well as contributing to more efficient pro-duction processes in Gütersloh, says Torsten Kahl, Sales and Marketing Director in Argos Solu-tions, Germany.
