WoodTech is proudly associated with the new board upgrade facility recently installed at EGR. EGR are importers of the beautiful ABS laminated board brand Stylite. Stylite are the Australian High Gloss board producers. Their flagship product is the acrylic-capped ABS laminated boards which provide high durability and the ability to re-polish the surfaces should the low risk of scratches actually occur.
WoodTech supplied the high tech Alpha 700 PUR capable edgebander that is now the centre of their high quality production process. With release and polishing agent sprays included, and interchangeable glue pot complimented by a preheat and maintenance station, and incorporate corner rounding this edgebander assures them and their customers of excellent quality and finish.
To compliment the edgebander we have also installed the WoodTech Lancer panel saw with the productive Trucut CNC fence and Technoshop suite to assure them of accurate final sizes regardless of the thickness of edging that their customers choose. This will ensure accuracy of cutting of up to 0.1 mm. The software allows for edging thickness to be tied to the edging type in a manner that allows for pre-milling the board before edging at a value not necessarily equal to the edging thickness. Pre-milling helps to diminish that visible glue line to absolute imperceptibility.
We wish EGR every success in their venture and are proud to be a part of this project.
