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

    Carcass furniture production, as individual pieces of furniture (completely assembled), or mass furniture (completely assembled or unassembled as DIY furniture).

    Carcass furniture is furniture with cube-shaped carcasses of wood composite boards, such as ktichen cabinets, bathroom, or office furniture.

  • Furniture front (Illustration)

    Furniture front

    Producing decorative fronts for carcass furniture with different surface structures and construction types.

  • Wooden window (Illustration)


    Opening options and corner connections (opening outwards / inwards, pivoting, revolving or sliding windows vertically/horizontally, slot and peg, dowels, 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.

  • stairs

    Wooden stairs

    We differentiate between

    -producing wooden stairs with intensive machine help, especially using modern CNC-machining centres which usually have more than three controllable axes to be able to produce round or bent parts that are standard in stair production.

    Using this method, the stairs first have to be digitally constructed with the help of a special stairs software

    - production using conventional standard machines. Conventional production takes a lot of time and requires great manual skill and experience. 


  • 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.

  • Chip board (Illustration)

    Chip board

    Chip board is the oldest and most well-known wood material. It is made up of different sized glued chips that create a multi-layer structure. It is used mainly in furniture production and interior construction. 

  • MDF board (Illustration)

    Fibre boards (MDF/HDF)

    The term fibre board encompasses MDF (medium density fibre boards) and HDF (high density fibre boards). With these types of boards the wood is not in chips, as with chipboard, but cut even more finely into fibres. This leads to a homogenous panel or board with a fine structure.

  • OSB board (Illustration)

    OSB- Oriented Strand Board

    OSB board is a wood composite made out of large, thin chips - so-called strands. Strands are strewn in several oriented layers, so that the board is similar in characteristic to veneer plywood. OSB boards are used as construction boards in outside areas, in interior construction as wall panelling, or flooring boards, or also as casing material, as well as in packaging production.
