2 technologies to suit your roll to roll processing requirements

High volumes, multiple shifts, mass production and a limited variety of finishing patterns represent one scenario related to edge processing on roll to roll equipment. Small volumes, tiny batches, customisation and an unlimited choice of finishing patterns are at the opposite end of the scale. Catering for both customer types means mastering two different technologies.

On one hand, roller coating equipment enables high volumes, non-stop production and minimises linear or square metre costs. On the other hand, a single-pass digital printer allows for maximum customisation, enhanced flexibility, fast time-to-market and superb quality.

We know your industry and each process requires a dedicated solution

One benefit of entrusting your roll to roll needs to Cefla Finishing is that we have over 60 years’ experience serving the furniture manufacturing industry. This places us in a position to advise on how to manage each process and choose the most appropriate solution.

Whichever technology is best adapted to your needs, there is a turnkey solution which includes lacquers or inks for the start-up phase, all of which have been tried and tested on our machines. Furthermore, our Finishing LAB is open to all customers interested in running tests on their own products to pinpoint any critical issues before production starts.

    For both scenarios, we also provide equipment for bottom primer application, drying ovens and roller coaters for high-gloss and deep matt finishing. The equipment can be completed with roll winders, unwinders and tensioners, and alignment devices.
