Cantisa’s dedication to innovation and quality has positioned it as an industry leader in edgeband manufacturing. The company proudly claims to be the “pioneering edgeband manufacturer in Spain to adopt digital printing technology” – a milestone that fortifies its status as a leading provider of high-quality edgebands and further enhances its customer service.
“In an ever-evolving market, board manufacturers continuously create increasingly complex designs that follow interior design trends, mimicking organic materials and three-dimensional effects on flat melamine,” Cantisa suggests. “Developing matching edgebands without digital printing technology would be challenging.”
While Cantisa continues to utilise the traditional printing method, which involves cylinders transferring ink to the edgeband, it has also introduced a more streamlined process through digital printing. With digital technology, the surface is simply scanned, and the design is replicated on the edgeband, akin to making a photocopy. This not only reduces production times but also enhances the quality and fidelity of the final product.
The edgebands not only mirror the visual appearance of the boards but also faithfully recreate their texture and level of gloss. This is achieved by configuring the printing process to create reliefs using a cluster of ink droplets. As a result, the relief synchronises perfectly with the design, producing a highly realistic appearance.
Digital printing enables the attainment of a true “perfect match” between the edgeband and the board, all in record time. This agility is crucial for keeping pace with the rapid emergence of new market trends.
Yet, the benefits of digital edgeband printing go beyond matching edgebands to boards. One of its most remarkable advantages is the ability to print any custom image or design. This unleashes a world of creative possibilities. Edgebands can now feature brand logos, custom drawings, motifs, or replicate various materials with exceptional print quality at 720dpi and full colour.
“This technology opens the door to a realm of creativity for designers, allowing them to imbue every piece of furniture and space they create with a unique and distinctive touch using these digital edgebands”
