Value-adding is the natural and best means of achieving optimum financial returns for the production of wood based panels.
The press is the heart of the overlaying process, defining its technical and economical success. The key features of a superior overlaying press are its ability to function reliably and its adjustability. Multi- opening presses are best suited for producing large volumes of conventional overlaid products or products with specific surface patterns.
The process often begins by overlaying panels with materials suitable for a variety of different end uses. Companies offering a comprehensive range of overlaid panel products have a distinct advantage in that they are able to respond to the many and varied needs of the market. They are also introduced to a broader range of market opportunities and, thus, a greater potential customer base.
What's more, the higher value obtained from overlaying panels enables producers to export to distant markets, markets that would not be available were they producing only commodity products. Having access to such markets enables producers to grow their customer base exponentially.
