Finishes in the construction industry: integrated finishing lines for architectural elements

Finishes in construction concern a huge variety of architectural elements. Finishing requires the use of machines and systems to ensure that each construction project is finished in accordance with industry standards and customer requirements. The many substrates used in this sector have specific physical or functional characteristics in addition to being aesthetically attractive.

What are the trends for finishes in the building sector?

As trends in the construction industry change, finishes are becoming increasingly important. Industry players must respond to the growing demand for customization and small batches. This has led to an increased focus on flexible and efficient finishing lines.

At the same time, finishes in construction need to ensure durability and long-term value. In addition to aesthetic considerations, manufacturers are also focusing on improving the performance of surfaces so as to meet customer needs. This includes the development of finishes able to withstand extreme weather conditions - for exteriors - and special-performance finishes (stain resistant, scratch resistant, interior environment resistant) 

Finishes in construction: the benefits of using machines and automated systems

Automated machine systems, software and IoT are becoming increasingly popular in building and construction. Automated finishing technologies can be used to achieve a wide variety of finishes - from woodworking to metalworking all the way to stoneworking. They enable builders to create complex shapes quickly and accurately - while reducing the risk of human error.  These technologies offer a number of advantages:
  • Greater accuracy and homogeneousness
  • They also reduce the need for manual labour, which can save time and money and reduce the likelihood of human error
  • High quality finishes with minimised waste materials
  • Productivity and efficiency

Finishing technology applications for the building industry

The building sector relies on manufacturers of architectural elements for indoor and outdoor applications. 

A vast range of raw materials are used, as well as a number of technologies including:

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

01 What are the advantages of roller coating?

High flexibility in terms of output rate and choice of cycles/processes according to the line make-up.

Zero solvent emissions thanks to 95% use of products with high dry residue (UV) content.

Possibility of using the roller technique for any application on all flat surfaces.

02 What are the advantages of spray coating?
Firstly, spray coating ensures all sides of the piece are covered. Secondly, the product shape is unimportant and, since it is not a contact-type coating, different tolerances between products are compensated for automatically.
03 What are the advantages of vacuum coating?
This technology has many benefits. To start with, transfer efficiency reaches an astonishing 99%. Vacuum coaters have a limited footprint, so they occupy little factory space. Production efficiency is optimised because by using a vacuum coater, 360° sanding, coating and curing of a profile is dealt with in a single pass. Overspray is absent and the process is environmentally friendly. Coating thicknesses are high and, for example, can reach 700 µm on glass wool panels.
04 What are the advantages of drying?
Let's talk about the advantages of the whole finishing process, which includes lacquer application and drying. The "finished" item ends up with improved resistance and protection from external agents, as well as a better aesthetic presentation.
05 What does digitizing my factory mean?
Firstly, digitizing your factory means converting production processes by moving away from traditional systems towards highly automated, interconnected ones that also act as a rich data source. As we see it, this digitization makes sense if it allows your company to remain competitive, cut costs and maximise profits.
06 How can I know whether the coating system will cause problems after assembly?
Our unique know-how allows us to process all operational data and extrapolate from it the tasks needed to pro-actively improve the output of coating processes and ensure their stability and repeatability.  Note also that our extensive experience in the field gives our solutions exceptional efficiency.
