Charlotte, N.C. - Cefla North America, Europe's leading finishing equipment manufacturer, is pleased to announce the dates of their April 2012 “Cefla North America Live” Open House.

This spring event, primarily dedicated to flooring finishing technologies, will be held on Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April, 27 from 9:00AM to 5:00PM at Cefla’s brand new 150,000-square-foot North American headquarters.*

A particular highlight of the event will be the NEW Compact Flooring System (CFS). The CFS features an extremely versatile Roll-Coat & Vacuum Combination to help customers grow their business without vast floor extensions. After applying high quality base and top coats via the reliable roll-coater, a very simple change-over process activates the vacuum coater to completely seal the substrates. Virtually 100% coating transfer and optimal space utilization provide excellent efficiency and top notch quality for pre-finished floors.

Finished flooring will be produced using a combination of sanding, roll coating and vacuum technologies. Customers will have also the opportunity to see a variety of live demonstrations focused on:

1. Denibber - Rollcoat seal coat

2. Denibber - Rollcoat seal coat ( or more passes)

3. Denibber - Rollcoat top coat or vacuum top coat (360 or as desired)

- In case of Natural-Oils or UV-Oils the CFS can be equipped with wiping brushes after the roll coat application.

- Raw sanding can be performed off-line using a belt sander or in-line with an optional belt sander unit.

- Stain will be performed offline. Cefla offers a CVR system for stain vacuum application and IR dryer.

Demos will take place approximately every two hours at 9:00AM, 11:00AM, 1:00PM, and 3:00PM to better accommodate the schedules of attendees. Demonstrations can be personalized upon demand.

“We are extremely excited to host the first Open House of 2012 and to have the opportunity to showcase a variety of the finest finishing machines that the market has to offer,” says Massimo di Russo, VP of Cefla North America. “We are looking forward to hosting a successful event and welcoming all customers that are committed to learn more about finishing”.
