How vacuum coating technology solves the issue of unmatched flat panel edges and surfaces.
In the past, flat panel decoration has faced a recurrent issue without a satisfactory solution: how to make the surface of the panel match its edge perfectly. Using vacuum coating technologies developed for both surface and edge, we have solved that problem.
There is a perfect combination to solve this issue, made up of two machines we have created. One is the Smartedge, a complete solution for finishing panel edges, the other is Smartvacuum, the latest innovation to coat the flat panel surface. Same technique, same lacquer, same top quality.
Smartvacuum deposits 100/140g per sqm of 100% UV lacquer in a single step, far less than a spray coater. This reduces costs, lead time and streamlines the coating process. No solvents either for a more sustainable process. Panels move on to Smartedge and you obtain an excellent match between panel surface and edge. Using vacuum coating for both sections, quality is increased whereas process times and costs are reduced. Moreover, the stability of UV lacquers is better than those used currently, so the quality finish obtained will also last much longer.
