VENEERS JOINTING BY MEANS OF WIRE
AND GLUE PROCEDURES

LEONARDO TRADE has 40 years experience as a dealer of veneers. He has followed the technological innovations of machinery, always in perfect working order, to ensure top performance and quality production.

Obtaining a high quality junction on veneers means adopting a very precise production system where experience is crucial. Every single process and wood species have very precise characteristics and must be treated in a very professional way.

VENEERS PRODUCTION STEPS

VENEERS SELECTION

Our breeders extrapolate only the packages of sliced veneers that are suitable for producing a specific order. They classified by color, texture, vein spacing, length and width, thickness and quality of course linked to the budget of our customers.

PRESSING

A heating / cooling cycle process on a special pressing machine is done on the material that is not perfectly spread in order to obtain a flat and workable wood sheet. Only in this way it will be possible to ensure the success of the subsequent processing steps.

LENGTH CUTTING

The material is carefully selected by the cutting operator. Then he decides parcel by parcel where to cut veneers lengthwise avoiding technical and aesthetic defects such as graininess, spots, slicing marks etc., having in mind the characteristics of the final product that results in our internal database that keeps all our customers’ orders.

CUTTING OUT

At this stage our clerk performs two operations. Trimming of parcels along the length optimizing waste and eliminating the non-compliant parts and he ensures that slats standards strongly fit the standards required by customers. This is the process that determines the real beauty of the final product.

WIRE METHOD JOINTING

In this phase by means of our electrical jointing machines, we sew the sheets to complete the bigger finished sheet by using a high quality thermo-melting wire which must be adequate to the thickness of wood. The wire holds together the slats with a zig-zag that touches and pastes the two sides. The operator must check the correct fusion of the wire and the perfect jointure of both veneers as well as getting sure, sheet by sheet, that the material is free of defects.

JOINTING BY GLUE METHOD

Customers who want maximum technical performance can choose jointing veneers by glue method. It ‘definitely a more expensive step but the junction of veneers in this way is surely much better because they are held together by a mix of glues we have tested in several years to obtain the maximum quality standard attainable. The glue will be applied on the thickness of the veneer and possibly pigmented with the same color of the wood and heated so as to obtain the perfect fixing

QUALITY CONTROL ON LIGHTED TABLE

All our veneers are checked on a special illuminated bench that allows us to identify any defect or imperfection. The operator checks every sheet against light and assures that every single veneer fully complies with the quality standards and technical requirements.

SQUARING

This phase is performed in both, wire or glue jointing methods, if the customer requires it. By means of this stage it is possible to obtain the maximum precision in terms of dimensions of the sheets with an accuracy of about 1 millimeter.

PACKAGING AND SHIPMENT

Protecting such a developed and precious product obtained during the previously mentioned procedures is crucial. We perform therefore appropriate packaging adequate to highly protect veneers during shipment. Packaging must protect against impacts but also against the light by a suitable stretch film. Just a few minutes of sun could stain the veneers permanently. Shipment is done by our own trucks or trusted couriers.
