3D Veneer

March 8, 2006

Three-dimensional formable wood veneer

3D Veneer is a formable veneer for the industrial production of 3D molded plywood developed by Dr. Achim Moeller. The 3D Veneer process first treats conventional wood veneers in such a way that they can be “deep drawn” while preserving the texture of the wood.

In this way, it is possible to create plywood products that were impossible to make before. The 3D shells can also be laminated, making use of the well-known advantages of lightweight construction and 3D sandwich structures.

Apart from the manufacture of molded parts, 3D veneers can be also used for coating 3D components like housings in a wide range of materials.

  1. We are a custom architectural wood working shop in Plaistow NH. I are constantly being asked to bid projects that bend wooden veneers in to direction. Could I please get some samples of your 3D veneers? We are in the process of bidding a large theater ceiling now and it seem like the curves could work well with your product.
