starts the cooling process.
True three-chamber presses
can be used with or without a
membrane. They function freely
between two- and three-chamber
machines, based on requirements.
The best high-gloss product is
achieved in a two-chamber process without a membrane. Presses
with proportional valves and
cycles developed to facilitate this
process will yield the best results.
In today’s world of 3D laminat-
ing it is important to understand
your press and how the cycle
functions affect the end product.
By understanding these functions
it will better help the operator in
troubleshooting and developing
new products. The industry has
never seen the wide range of prod-
ucts like it does today. With the em-
phasis on surface design, texture,
and new materials, 3D laminating
has reached a place far beyond the
days of white on white. ;

Common veneer matches
Here is a brief look at three common matches.
Book match: The most common match, alternating leaves of veneer are
turned over, so that the adjacent leaves are opened like the pages of a book. It
yields symmetry, with visually prominent features.
Slip match: The leaves of veneer are fed into the splicing machine the
same way they come off the slicer or lathe. This match minimizes the “barber
pole” effect, but a “cathedral” cannot be manufactured either.
Plank match: This creates a rustic effect, similar to glued lumber planks. It
is made when dissimilar veneer leaves are assembled in a specific order.
