Direct grain printing gains popularity in the furniture and board industries.

At IWF, Burkle is exhibiting a 3-color printing line consisting of three grain printing machines, DRUMA-M, for the direct printing of grain of all kinds of wood species, or other patterns and designs, onto pre-coated particleboard, MDF, HDF and OSB panels.


The direct printing process is getting more and more popular in the furniture and board industry and is even used for the production of laminate flooring. High durability and scratch resistance can be achieved due to new developments in the coating field. Burkle's family of grain printing machines, DRUMA, comprises three different machine models: DRUMA-S, DRUMA-M and DRUMA-HP. This ensures the right machine for any requirement.

If you are looking for a machine for the production of flooring, back board panels, furniture, or for a small batch production or a laboratory, Burkle has your printing machine. Within the direct printing process, a desired decor is being directly printed onto the pre-coated workpiece surface and afterwards is being finished with various layers of coatings. While other surface treatment technologies first need to print the decor separately onto a decorative paper, which then is applied to the surface in additional production steps, the direct printing process enables the manufacturer to directly print onto the workpieces. Up to three or four machines can be installed behind each other and synchronized to guarantee a precise printing result at high feed speeds.

Burkle's printing machines, DRUMA, offer a high printing accuracy combined with a high line performance and availability, as well as a good and easy machine operability. Besides the grain printing line DRUMA-M, Burkle also will show a surface finishing line at Booth #5652 at IWF 2008.
