How is plywood made?

Plywood is made of three or more thin layers of wood bonded together with an adhesive. Each layer of wood, or ply, is usually oriented with its grain running at right angles to the adjacent layer in order to reduce the shrinkage and improve the strength of the finished piece. Most plywood is pressed into large, flat sheets used in building construction. Other plywood pieces may be formed into simple or compound curves for use in furniture, boats, and aircraft.

Plywood Classification and Grading:

Commercial plywood

Fancy plywood

Film faced/ Shuttering plywood

Melamine plywood

 

The Manufacturing Process:

How to make quality furniture board? Sinoeuro machinery solutions- board size: 1220*2440*3mm/5mm/9/12/18mm,

  1. Veneer preparation Section Log sawing- 4ft log debarkder and peeling with auto stacker

Get veneer material Veneer after drying and selected,high quality board,material used is also higher. Core Veneer need to be selected and grade for different quality board.

  1. Gluing Section Veneer gluing with 4ft glue spreader and veneer panel after core composing gluing.
  2. Composing Core composer from 2ft veneer to 8ft veneer panel board, vertical side veneer composing with scraft jointing for edge grinding of veneer

/ (or directly 8ft veneer in some countries direct peel.)to ensure the veneer thickness is uniform and even.

 

 

  1. Assembly the veneer to be 3 layers 5/7/9/11 layers on your each order required spec.
  2. Cold press- pre press for plain board
  3. Repair/ Repatching/ Mending the board surface with glue tapes or plastic nails to ensure the surface is flat and even without sag.
  4. Plain/base board Hot press

 

 

 

 

  1. Putty and recheck the surface of the board

9.Calibration sanding for board thickness evenness and surface flatness

10.edge trimming saw for 4 sides trimming

 

 

 

 

  1. Cold press again before veneer laminating
  2. 2nd hot press- laminating press Put face veneer on the board and press

 

 

  1. Board polishing and finishing for fine and shining surface for furniture.(Film faced plywood no need polishing sander,but furniture board needs)

 

 

  1. Finished products inspection and packing,go to warehouse.
