Decor Leader, an Italian company from Montelabbate (Pesaro Urbino), which specialises in the decoration of panel edges, has chosen Cefla as its technological partner for the development of its production lines, which are oriented towards digital printing and precision finishing. In view of the growing demand for customisation in the field of decorative finishes - recreating materials such as stone or wood with vein patterns of different types and colours - Decor Leader's main need was to acquire flexible technologies to enable it to create perfect edges for the furniture produced by its customers and manage small production batches more effectively.
“Cefla has developed the technologies that are crucial for our needs. After in-depth analysis of the Italian and foreign market, we chose Cefla because its organisation combines a series of technologies of crucial importance for what we had to do: digital printing and coating solutions, not to mention the in-house software area, essential for the development of digital printing." explained Mr. Daniele Martelloni, co-founder at Decor Leader.
The line Cefla has installed at the Decor Leader plant comprises a Smartcoater EVO - for the roller application of primer and finishing coatings - and a J-print SP single pass digital printer, able to operate at a speed of 60 linear metres/minute and print on any type of substrate, making it the right response to the company's need for flexibility and modularity. The line concludes with a Cefla UV-R oven, which combines all parts of the drying process in a single module.
“Having a partner like Cefla at our side means being always up to date with new technologies," Daniele Martelloni concludes, "because it guarantees us continuity and enables us to develop any type of wood finishing and decoration technology."
