Today’s challenges are often connected to recurrent issues faced by a broad variety of manufacturing industries where a product undergoes a finishing process.
Wood and its derivatives are some of the most common substrates coated in the furniture and building sectors. At Ligna 2023, Cefla Finishing is taking a practical approach to find the best solutions to those everyday issues that concern finishing outfits across the globe.
JUST TO MENTION A FEW TOPICS WE ARE ADDRESSING AT THIS EDITION OF LIGNA:
At Ligna in Hanover we will present the latest innovations that will enable companies to implement colour changeovers without stopping production. Managed by a special software and a system which involves the equipment’s mixing valves, colour changeover requires less than 10 seconds compared to the standard 2 to 3 minutes needed today.
One way to obtain the perfect match between a panel surface and the panel’s edge is to use the very same technology for both parts of the process, vacuum coating technology. This is exactly what Cefla Finishing implements with two highly innovative machines built into a line featuring edge and surface coating equipment and sanding capabilities, all in a fully automated solution.
Cefla’s profile wrapping brand Düspohl will present a line made up of optimised standard equipment that reduces set-up times, simplifies handling and minimises downtime. Also, it will be equipped with special tools to wrap profiles with CPL surface material which even manage radiuses of up to 1 mm. Today’s focus is on smart solutions that positively impact efficiency and output, with no more than a moderate investment. These can be completed with optional solutions for special applications or for automation purposes, the degree of which is scalable, depending on customer demands and project requirements.
Beyond the need for high-performance machinery, Cefla Finishing develops in-house software solutions to support companies embracing Industry 4.0. Created by a team of experts and suitable for use on hybrid lines integrating Cefla solutions and third party machines, these tools help customers achieve efficiency, reliability, predictability, and provide software for remote monitoring as well as line simulation for layout planning.
