The first step of the laminate manufacturing process is bonding.
At MFL, we offer a variety of laminate and work with dozens of manufacturers offering a range of finishes and colours.
This can be applied to a core board of your choice. The laminate is pressed onto the core board, to the highest bond quality and strength.
Whether you need a small quantity of panels or a thousand, MFL will ensure your chosen panel boards are cut to perfection.
Our technical department will cut your panels to your required size using our Holza Bergstadt saw, ensuring effective and accurate cutting.
Panel edge banding is when a narrow strip of material is used to create a trim around the edges of a finished product applied using our IMA Edgebander.
This is done in several stages to get the desired radius of Edgeband prior to the final polishing.
In addition to this our state-of-the-art edge banding unit comes complete with panel alignment device to ensure all components are perfectly square.
Shaped Edged Banding
Shape edged banding requires all the stages listed above but to a curved edge panel this is undertaken by our state of the art CNC machine.
At MFL, we offer a variety of different edging materials and colours and the thickness can be adjusted to suit your needs.
CNC, also known as ‘Computer Numerical Control’, is a manufacturing process where programmed computer software controls the movement of machinery. With CNC technology, three-dimensional cutting can be controlled from a computer, with one simple set of prompts.
Once these prompts have been programmed and set-in motion, one of our two CNC machines will cut the desired shape and dimensions from the chosen material.
CNC is a swift and reliable process that requires little maintenance from human employees. These machines can perform cutting, routing, and drilling tasks quickly and effectively, ensuring accuracy, quality, and faster lead times for customers.
CAM (also known as Computer-Aided Manufacturing) is the use of software and computer-controlled machinery in the manufacturing process.
This software is able to design and create products from raw materials, using CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machinery. At MFL, we will use Computer-Aided Manufacturing and one of our two CNC machines to add any relevant drilling and finishing touches to your panels.
Advantages of using CAM software is that the information you send MFL will be perfectly transformed into your finished product.
At MFL, we value honesty and transparency - we will keep you updated on your items’ progress throughout the manufacturing process.
We ensure all products are delivered within ten to fifteen days of placing your order. We will agree on a set delivery date not just week commencing, which will be added to your order confirmation, so you know exactly when to expect your delivery to arrive.
In the rare instance that we are unable to make your required delivery date, we will let you know so we can discuss alternative arrangements and remove delivery costs.
Once finished, all panels will be thoroughly cleaned, carefully packaged, and labelled, to ensure your order arrives damage-free and ready for use. We deliver to all regions in the UK.
