Rubberwood finger joint panel is lightweight, easy to transport and that is one of the main reasons why importers don’t hesitate to buy rubberwood finger-joint products thousand of miles from the Southeast Asia. Since it is light weight, it is also rather inexpensive to transport long distance.
There is a specific process through which partially finished rubberwood finger joint panel is produced. Here are the 6 major steps through which the pre-finished finger-joint panel is produced:
Manufacturing of Partially Finished Rubberwood Finger Jointed Panels
(1). Processed rubberwood sawn timber is usually very rough. And a process has to be undertaken to make the timber smooth. Machinery is used here to give a partial finish to the timber. The end result is a rather smooth rubberwood sawn timber which is very vital to produce a solid finger-joint panel.
(2). The second process involves a bit of cutting & trimming. It also has a process of selecting the right rubber-wood timber. The process starts with the use of machinery where the machinery cuts the rubber wood timber into specific lengths of small and large timber sections.
Once the cutting & trimming is done, the partially finished rubberwood timber is checked thoroughly by a team of specialists to find out if each and every cut timber fits into the quality standards set by the company, Rubberwood Products Ltd.. The low quality partially finished timbers are removed from the selected ones, and the good ones are then taken to the rubberwood finger-joint panel production line.
It is then the process of arranging the partially finished rubberwood timbers of different dimensions are made:
(3). The third process involves the use of finger jointing machine, to cut two ends of the partially finished rubber-wood timber to form finger joints.
(4). The process then takes a turn as high quality non-toxic water resistant adhesives glue is used to paste the finger joints. The process is used to form a rubberwood finger joint stick.
(5). Partially processed finger-joint sticks are kept in equal sizes and aligned accordingly. Machinery is used to complete the process as the glued finger-joint sticks are kept in proper sizes.
(6). The final process involves a final check before it is readied to be shipped into local market and different countries.
The exported partially finished rubberwood finger-joint panels, finger-joint boards or finger-joint sticks can be used by furniture manufacturers and building’s interior decorators to produce high-end rubberwood furniture, finger-jointed floorings and FJ table tops of different sizes & dimensions according to their own/customer’s requirements.
