Postforming machines VF
Postforming machines are most frequently used in a single-sided version.
For higher capacity requirements, double-sided machines are also
available. And it goes without saying that Homag also offers
high-performance units. Depending on the material used, the feed rates
of the different models range from around 10 to over 30 meters per
minute. The length of the machine depends on the type and number of
necessary processing units.
Five processing stages, five machine zones
The VF series postforming machines comprise five different zones for
The arrangement shown here illustrates a typical postforming machine
configuration. A survey of the different processing units used is also
provided. And for special processing requirements, a further selection
of supplementary modules is also available. Like to know more? We look
forward to your call.
Functionality plus visual appeal
The quality requirements imposed on modern furniture are growing more
stringent all the time. In offices, kitchens, bathrooms or laboratories,
in work rooms or for interior fittings: The demand is for furniture
processed to an extremely high standard of quality.
Complete protection for surfaces and edges
Postforming offers an ideal processing method for furniture which is
liable to mechanical, thermal or chemical stresses or exposed to the
effects of moisture - all of which can take a heavy toll particularly in
the sensitive edge area. Maximum reliability is called for here. And
this is where the unique benefits of the postforming technique are
brought to bear: The surface and edge of the workpiece are protected by
a continuous laminate - which means that the unavoidable glue joint is
located outside this sensitive area.
Focal areas of application include:
- Kitchen fronts and worktops
- Bathroom furniture
- Office furniture
- Interior fittings
- Shop fittings
- Bank fittings/counters
- Laboratory furniture
- Window seats
Different techniques, different machines
The production of postforming panels differs considerably from
softforming and edge banding methods. Which is why it necessitates the
use of different techniques. The starting material used for postforming
is the profiled substrate panel, onto which a laminate is glued with the
degree of overhang necessary for the relevant postforming process.
