  • How do you process your decorative panels?

Skillful sawing

  • Set the protrusion (the distance between the upper tooth and panel surface) between 15 and 25 mm, depending on the diameter of the saw blade and the number of teeth.
  • Use preferably:
    • a combination of a main saw and a pre-scoring saw.
    • trapezoidal teeth, possibly in combination with flat teeth.
    • teeth made of polycrystalline diamond diamond for long durability.
  • Take into account the age of the saw blade specified by the manufacturer. Sharpen or replace the blade in time.
  • Cut the panels with a feed rate of 10 to 30 m/min and with the decorative side upwards.
  • Avoid vibrations by exerting sufficient pressure on the panels while sawing.

Meticulous milling

  • Work with a milling machine, CNC milling table, or CNC machine to obtain optimum results.
  • Use preferably:
    • a diamond-tipped cutterhead with a cutting angle between 30° and 70°.
    • diamond-tipped compact hoggers.
    • diamond-tipped routers.
  • Ensure that the cutting pressure of the cutting blades/teeth is always directed towards the panel:
    • Point the cutting blades/teeth downwards to cut the upper side.
    • Point the cutting blades/teeth upwards to cut the underside.

Excellent edging

  • Our recommendations on milling also apply when using an edge banding machine.
  • Use diamond-mounted cutting blades/teeth and adjust the milling unit according to the manufacturer’s guidelines.
  • Ensure that the thickness of the joint trimming unit matches that of the edge tape.
  • Allow for 5 mm extra edge tape width on top of the panel thickness for a clean finish (e.g. 18 mm panel thickness, 23 mm edge tape). After gluing, the excess will be cut off.

Dexterous drilling

  • Preferably use a carbide drill bit or one with a carbide tip.
  • Select a type of drill that is appropriate for the work to be carried out (e.g. dowel drill, through-hole drill, hinge drill, etc.).
