Products and parts
One of North American’s specialties is making furniture
parts, components and drawer side blanks made of Russian
birch with a flat and round top edge and UV clear coated.

Lite Ply is a multi-ply panel with thickness from 1/8 up to 2
inches that is up to 30 percent lighter than standard plywood
and can be used in interior and exterior applications such as
boating, retail displays, and interiors. It is plantation grown,
CARB II compliant and FSC certified.
Automated UV line
A major component in Naply’s capabilities is a large automated UV coating line, reported to be one of the largest in North
America. Built by Burkle, the line includes multiple stages,
roll coaters and three Costa widebelt sanders.
The UV coating line can handle 4 x 8, 4 x 10, 5 x 5, 5 x 10,
and 5 x 12 panel sizes in any thickness from 1/8 to 2 inches.
The process includes two reverse fillers, three smooth
sanders, and six roll coaters. A Wandres rotating brush cleaner applies “micro cleaning” to the surface. Junker handling
equipment stacks, flips, and lifts panels for the coating line.
The process ends with a full hard cure and final UV
topcoat. An automated stacking system can handle any configuration. Special finishes include anti-microbial, high wear,
dry-erase and other opaque finishes.
Also, a new Barberan “compact line” is being installed in
Parsippany and will be used for applying high-gloss coatings
or ultra matte on other surfaces such as melamine.
The biggest addition to Naply’s capabilities is an Onset x2
direct-to-substrate printer that can create large, accurate
images. Inca Digital Printers Ltd. In Cambridge, England,
