Finishing Equipment

Finishing equipment is used to give the product a finished look. To be more precise, it is used to transform a product, in this case furniture, from its raw and unfinished state to a polished and finished end product. Finishing equipments need not necessarily be machines; they can also be paints and polishes used on furniture.

The wood finishing industry consists of furniture and cabinet finishing and reupholstering facilities, and repair shops. The majority of the furniture being refinished is made of wood, but metal furniture also requires finishing. Each furniture business has developed its own unique procedures for completing its work, but the basic steps in all finishing processes are practically identical. Finish on the old piece is removed and the raw surface is sanded, stained and bleached. The pores are then filled and a sealer is applied. Finally, several coats of transparent or coloured film are applied for protection or appearance.
