First of all, the raw material (wood log) will be selected and stored at our factory/workshop. The raw material standards can differ between types of wood, but normally we choose the logs of maximum 1.3m in length and minimum 10cm in diameter.
Raw material storage
Then, we use a veneer lathe to peel the logs, in which way the wood is compressed with a nose bar while the veneer knife cuts the blocks into veneers that are typically 1.7mm thick. The first bit of the veneer which includes lumber bark shall be cut off. The veneer pieces are then clipped to a usable width, typically 640m or as request, for shrinkage and trim.
Workers classify the veneer after slicing
The veneers are now put outside in sun shade for about a day to increase their flexibility
Veneers after being dried in a cool day
The veneers are then dried to a certain moisture content of below 12%. Thanks to the gifted tropical weather, our veneers are normally dried naturally under the sun for 1 or 2 days until their moisture reaches the right level. However, during the rain season, we use driers/kilns to dry our veneers quicker (1.5 days) and guarantee the right moisture content for our final goods.
Our kiln-dried veneers
When the veneers have been dried, checked and divided into different quality types, they will go through a glue spreading machine so a specific kind glue can be covered all over the veneers’ surface.
Veneers arranged and glue spreaded
Veneers now are laid up on a conveyor to form the required thickness of plywood pressed later on.
Our workers arranging veneers
Cold press: The veneers are pressed to shape the bond in the layers of the board
Our cold press machine
Our workers now will check the plywood core to see if veneers are properly glued and surface is perfectly flat, they will handle the defects before putting the core into the hot press machine.
Workers cutting the spare veneer parts
The laid-up assembly of veneers then is sent to a hot press in which it is consolidated under heat and pressure. Hot pressing has two main objectives: (1) to press the glue into a thin layer over each sheet of veneer; and (2) to activate the thermosetting resins. The time and temperature vary depending on the wood, resin types and customers’ requests.
A hot press machine
We now let out the plywood core for cooling down, check the surface and handle defects. After 1-2 days, we sand the surface of the board with a sanding machine and cover it with the face veneer as requested by our customers (Bintangor, Okoume, etc.)
Our sanding machine
The boards are hot pressed for the second time to ensure the stickiness between the core and the face. And to form the finished plywood board, the edges shall be trimmed so the boards have the right size as required.
Boards being trimmed for fine edges
Now the finished goods are stored in our warehouse and packed before delivery.
Below are some sample images of our DE birch plywood (E0 glue) for your reference
For commercial grade, we have many types of faces to make furniture, cabinet, kitchen, chair, door, etc. Below are some types for your reference:
Manufacturing process knowledge and control
The problem with mass production is that you cannot check every single product manufactured or sold. However, the problem will be solved if you can control the producing process.
As you may recognize above, our company has deep knowledge of both our products and the production process. However, it is only the tip of the iceberg. We have the ability to control our product quality through good and durable machinery, standardized process, well-trained workers and dedicated quality control teams.
We are also very proud to have been able to consult for some of our suppliers and business partners about more effective techniques as well as management experience, helping them partly reduce their production and management costs.
Finished goods control
100% of our orders are checked by an independent quality-control company (as requested by and at the cost of our customers) or our own company’s employees and a copy of the checking result is sent to the buyer before the goods are packed at our supplier’s factory.
In case an independent quality-control company is responsible for checking the goods, the result shall be made officially in written document and included in the export document for the shipment.
In case of our company checking the goods, we shall record the checking process and result (in pictures and/or photos) and send the evidences to our customers via email or a messenger application that they use to communicate with our representative.
Categories and methods to check for each shipment/order will be discussed in details with you before contract signing.
With our advantage in the relations with tens of forwarders in Vietnam and other countries, we are confident to delivery our commodity under all the terms as stated by Incoterms 2020, serving our customers in the best ways possible.
In general, we recommend 02 terms of payment as follows:- Irrevocable Letter of Credit at sight issued by a reliable/world-class bank- Telegraphic Transfer However, depends on the terms of delivery, we will establish the appropriate payment methods that will secure both parties during each transaction.
