Furniture industry. History Examples of ancient furniture are extremely rare, but there is considerable knowledge of the pieces made by craftsmen in China, India, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome from pictorial representations.

Beds, tables, chairs, boxes, stools, chests, and other pieces were nearly always made of natural wood, though veneering was known in Egypt, where it was used to produce coffin cases of great durability. The Romans too used veneers, though chiefly for decorative purposes. Bronze was also used in Roman tables, stools, and couch frames. Pompeian wall paintings show that plain, undecorated wooden tables and benches were standard in kitchens and workshops and that panelled cupboards were common. The growing sophistication in technique brought a revolutionary change in the men who made furniture.

In the earlier system of framework and panel, the framing gave the required strength in both length and width, the panel being a mere filling held in grooves.

Marty Bailey, 55, is about to start his day as the head of manufacturing at the eco-chic label Reformation. The brand’s 33,500-square-foot headquarters houses the first fully sustainable sewing factory in the United States. When visitors stop by, they tend to notice the Curtis Kuling graffiti scrawled on the walls, the hip vintage furniture that populates the design studio, and employees tending to their plots in the community garden outside. But for Bailey, the most exciting thing about the factory is its totally reimagined manufacturing process.

In search of zero-joint technology

The uptake of this processing method has been embraced by furniture producers the world over and is generally considered to be the optimum technology for anyone who wants to differentiate their products from those of the competition. Recently, there has been some negative press and confusion about zero-joint technology edgeband processing. The technology is still new to many processors and the fine-tuning of machinery to suit the selected edgeband is crucial to achieving the ideal of zero-joint quality.

No edgeband seam, no glue pot for furniture maker Paladin Industries.

Con la nueva técnica las costuras no se notan (seamless appearance) y se elimina del proceso el pegamento (glue). Tecnología utilizada: zero edge/Air Tec. Utilizando aire comprimido caliente se activan las capas adhesivas. Aquí también mencionan que la capa es un polímero. Entonces es la misma tecnología mencionada en: Plasmatreat. – viridiananunez

Plasma jets for edge-banding equipment.

La creación de paneles para muebles de alta calidad implica producirlos sin uniones (zero bondlines), es decir, que las costuras no sean visibles (the edge seam should not be visible). El proceso de manera tradicional hace que el pegamento se oscurezca y se vean las uniones. Plasmatreat desarrolló una solución innovadora. El proceso Dustec ® elimina las uniones (bondlines). En vez de pegamento se utiliza una capa de polímero. El resultado es que a simple vista no se ven las uniones. – viridiananunez

Tecnologías de fabricación de muebles y productos derivados « Noticias Habitat.

Perfecto. Este es el tipo de cosas que necesitamos. Todavía mejor es cuando den más datos de qué empresas fabrican el equipo, o de cómo ver datos más concretos de los beneficios que generan las tecnologías en la producción y en el producto terminado. Pero por lo pronto el conjunto de páginas como ésta nos permitirá identificar las tendencias, que es lo que nos pide el proyecto. En este caso, además, lo veo muy aplicable a la realidad y el nivel de nuestras empresas. – yukoneagle2
