Carcass furniture (kitchen, bathroom and office furniture) is usually produced in production lines that are tailor-fit to the furniture producer's requirements. But the production process is basically always the same: the base material (normally plastic coated particle boards) is taken out of the board storage area and first cut roughly using a board circular saw to produce the individual components (top, bottom, and side walls, and fronts, if necessary).
The four edges of the components are then processed to the required finished dimensions and the processed surfaces are coated using a decorative material. This coating process is usually named 'Banding'. After banding any necessary holes are drilled into the components for later assembly.
Components, especially those for individual furniture, are processed on stationary machining centres that can be used extremely flexibly, as individual processing steps can easily be programmed. Through-feed machines are ideal for mass production, even though they are less flexible, but require far less time for processing than machining centres.
The finished components are packed either with the necessary assembly material (especially with DIY furniture), or with the required assembly material (connectors, fittings, handles, etc), and mounted on the finished piece of furniture, and are then packed for shipping.
double-sided coated chip boards, one-sided coated HDF boards (for backs and drawer bottoms), optional: coated chip or laminated boards (for fronts), pre-fabricated fronts (MDF varnished or foiled, solid wood).
