State of the art technology for Rudnev
Rudnev is currently installing and commissioning a state-of-the-art, fully automated, sandwich panel factory. This factory will put them at the leading edge of global technology and it will be the most advanced EPS panel manufacturing factory in South Africa. With a production capacity of 10m per minute, it more than quadruples Rudnev’s capacity and adds the additional capability to manufacture insulated roof panels.
The factory also features a fully automated EPS cutting line to cut large EPS blocks into the sheets required to seamlessly feed the panel line, which eliminates a critical bottleneck in the supply chain. The panel line is to be commissioned by the end of March 2017, and the EPS cutting line and other ancillary equipment is to be commissioned and fully integrated by the end of April 2017.
