Automating the Profile Finishing & Sanding Process
Three companies boost their productivity with automated profile finishing and sanding equipment
By J.D. Piland
A profiled moulding can add just the right accent to a room, cabinet or any piece of furniture. Often times, there is more to making, especially sanding and finishing, a wood profile than meets the eye.
New automated profile finishing equipment and profile sanders have improved that process. They can eliminate the need to make multiple passes, unless a high-end finish is desired. In addition, the finishing material can be reclaimed and the labor sometimes consists of just loading and unloading the machine.
