What does profile-wrapping mean?

​Profile wrapping is a process by which a decorative surface is laminated onto a substrate in linear form.
This is done by means of a profile-wrapping machine.

Why was the process invented?

Several decades before a decorative surface was manually laminated, mainly wood veneer, onto a substrate. The increasing demand for furniture at the beginning of the 60s was the reason profile-wrapping machines were developed. Beyond that the pressure at costs and prices as well as the requirements of the customers regarding the surface design played a substantial role. One of the first such machines was built by Mr. Reinhard Düspohl.
