The fourth edition of "Cefla Live," has successfully concluded; the open day
organized by Cefla that this year has been enriched by a new technology, developed
in collaboration with Henkel Group.
Cefla Live has been very successful in terms of participation, with over 660 visitors (more
than the double compared to the edition dated 2012), of which over 80% from abroad.
"In the recent years the Cefla Live has grown a lot - Alberto Maestri Cefla Finishing
Group Sales Manager said - but the philosophy has never changed: to offer our
customers innovative technological solutions that meet with their requirements and the
way they work, including the real needs, providing them the opportunity to choose "what
to do", but even more, "how to” open up new markets. This means reiterate our
continued commitment to innovation, design and manufacturing of machines and
equipment, which allows our clients to be more competitive. "
The most outstanding innovation for the 2013 edition of Cefla Live was the presentation,
in partnership with Henkel, of the Fusion Coating System.
Fusion Coating represents the fusion of two innovative technologies : UV hotmelt
coating by Henkel and Inert Coating by Sorbini, which ensure perfect adhesion and
flatness of panels in coloured melamine, with both mat and glossy finishes.
Fusion Coating ensures the highest quality both on MDF and chipboard panels.
Additionally, Fusion Coating allows to process both individual panels intended to cut
as well as already cut-to-size and edge banded panels.
The important innovation was presented during in-depth technological seminars and
tested at Cefla Finishing LAB on the line specifically designed for this technology and,
from today, available for tests on parts supplied by the Customers.
The UV hotmelt adhesive creates a flexible layer with a single application, thus decreasing
the number of required layers of coat compared to the conventional processes .
This also reduces the chipping due to dimensional changes of the particle board and
ensures an easy cutting of the panels at the end of the process.
This important innovation, which generated a considerable interest among all people
attending Cefla Live, was further supported by tests on the entire range of machines at
Cefla Finishing LAB: from the oscillating spraying (Easy, Mito and Prima), to the
coating cycle with water based products carried out by iBotic and Aquadry, to the
coating of glass, parquet flooring, profiles, windows by iGiotto, and edges by the
Finally, a lot of participants were attracted by the versatility of the digital high definition
printing by Pixart Plot, which allows to print any kind of image on cabinet doors, even
textured, allowing a high degree of customization of the final product, combined with
production flexibility and proposal originality, absolutely unthinkable until now.
Cefla Live has become an important event for the entire production chain of the Finishing
sector, where the major players of the market, including Italian and foreign lacquer and
glue, spraying accessories , abrasive papers, grinding wheels, belts and quality control
suppliers, provide practical demonstrations and global professional advice to Cefla
customers thus giving an actual advantage to all visitors.
We would like to offer our most sincere thanks to them, to all customers who have visited
us, our sales Partners and all the staff for the efforts made for the success of Cefla Live.
