Production processes

„What are the right steps in order to manufacture my product?
And which machines do I need?"

Here you will find production processes for the most important wood products, clearly explained and divided into sub-processes and production steps. The machines and tools that are required for each step are listed - and of course their manufacturers with contact options.

  • Carcass furniture (Illustration)

    Carcass furniture

    Kitchen furniture, office furniture and furniture for many other purposes are usually designed as carcass furniture, i.e. furniture with cuboid carcasses made of wood-based panels. A distinction is made here between flexible individual production and mass production. Additionally, the production of lacquered furniture fronts and foil fronts is described. 

  • Wooden window (Illustration)


    Opening variants and corner joints (opening outwards / inwards, tilt and turn or vertically/horizontally sliding window, slot and tenon, dowel, other).

  • Flooring (Illustration)


    Wooden floor coverings are made of solid wood or wood-based materials or a combination of both. We distinguish between solid parquet, multi-layer parquet and laminate flooring.

  • Wooden stairs with risers (illustration)

    Wooden stairs

    We differentiate between these two categories:

    - The production of wooden stairs with intensive machine use, particularly with modern CNC machining centres. These usually have more than three actuated axes in order to be able to produce the round or curved parts that occur in staircase production. For this purpose, the staircase must first be constructed digitally by using a special staircase construction software.

    - And the production with conventional standard machines. This traditional production is time-consuming and requires considerable craftsman skills.


  • Glued laminated timber beam (Illustration)

    Mass Timber

    There is a range of building products for load-bearing applications made of wood: solid structural timber (KVH), duo/trio beams, laminated veneer lumber (LVL), glulam, cross laminated timber (CLT) and others. Here the production process of mass timber products - glulam and cross laminated timber - is explained.

  • wood-based panel (illustration)

    Wood-based Panels

    Manufacturing process of three important wood-based material types: particleboard (raw or coated), fibreboard (MDF/HDF, raw or coated) and OSB panels
