When the factory in Gore was designed, it was based on a 21-meter-long continuous press but at the last minute, the press design changed from 21 to 28 meters. The way the panels have to ‘travel’ after the press should have been 50% longer, which would have allowed a longer cooling time. Additionally, the factory increased speeds by 25% to 45% over nameplate rates. Daiken had to do something to improve cooling capacity. Otherwise, the ratio of reject boards at sanding would increase dramatically.
