Our FG1 suppliers have invested heavily in the latest computerised and automated “Meinan” peeling technology, so there is no need to check the veneer thicknesses manually. The drying system is fitted with sensors measuring the moisture content of each veneer sheet as come out of the dryers. Having also purchased a “Kikugawa” sensor machine, which is located at the out feed of the sander, has a dual function as follows:
- Scanning the sheet for any delamination or core failure
- Measuring the thickness of each sheet after sanding. Any sheet out of the tolerance range of +/- 0.3mm will cause a red light to show and the sheet will be removed
Available in a wide range of thicknesses 5.5mm/9mm/12mm and 3.6mm (OG1). Full 8 x 4ft sheets or cut to 4 x 2ft. With other bespoke sizes available upon request.
