SERVICES

 

BONDING

With multiple presses and an experienced bonding team, we are able to offer laminate and veneer bonding in both full sheet and 'edged first' component form.

Using the highest quality PVA and resin products, and next day delivery of the vast majority of laminates to our factory (including Polyrey, Formica, Abet & Egger), we are able to offer a fast, efficent and cost effective bonding service as a stand alone offering or as part of larger requirement.

PANEL SIZING

Cutting up to four 18mm jumbo sheets at a time and utilising the latest Magicut optimising software, our panel sizing service produces exceptional accuracy and a fast turnaround in an incredibly competitive market.

Our Homag Beamsaw and experienced operators can cut any laminate, timber or compact based material up to 80mm thick.

Panels are labelled and checked before moving on to the next stage in the factory or palletised for delivery.

EDGEBANDING

Our Homag edgebander is hugely capable, offering both PUR and Hot Melt glue options, panel thicknesses up to 60mm and edge sanding for veneer, timber coil and solid timber edges.​


Running at speeds of up to 18 metres per minute we can make sure that we meet tight deadlines whilst retaining perfect quality.

Our relationship with edging suppliers allows us to offer the entire range of ABS and timber edging products, matching any laminate, MFC or Veneer panel.

5 AXIS CNC MACHINING

Our Biesse and Homag CNC machines, with 4 and 5 axis capabilities, are run by a hugely experienced programming and operating team.

Whether you are looking for simple carcass components, nested formers or intricate mouldings and engravings we are perfectly positioned to help.

Using our team's combined knowledge and experience we continually work with our clients to develop ideas and make savings wherever possible.  Whether it is reducing material usage through nesting optimisation or saving assembly time on site with CNC engraving of components we always aim to add value.

PRIMING

We offer a panel priming service for any size of project.  Our multiple spray booths and experienced sprayers use PU or water-based primers to make sure your panels are ready for factory or on-site finishing.

We also offer a clear lacquering service for veneered panels, in PU, water-based or AC products, including de-nibbing and top coating.

3D DESIGN

Using Solidworks and trained designers we offer a full 3D design service, from simple component panels to full products.

Developing the commercial viability of our customer’s ideas at the initial stages is an area in which we excel.
