CNC Precision Machining (KOMO I & KOMO II)
At Custom Surfaces, we excel at producing custom and production wood, plastic, and phenolic products. Multiple precision CNC machines and tools allow us to respond quickly while providing effective product solutions. Nested based manufacturing and a material handling system result in speed, accuracy, and quality parts and products for our customers.
Membrane Pressing is one of our top custom surface manufacturing capabilities.
Years of experience has made us specialists in the the process of membrane pressing. During the membrane pressing process (also known as vacuum pressing), our thermolaminators use vacuum and/or positive pressure to adhere a variety of thermofoil laminate materials to various substrate materials in order to create 3-dimensional (3D) finished parts. This is done efficiently and with very little waste while assuring optimum quality membrane pressing/vacuum pressing.
Thermofoil Membrane Pressing Cycle:
- PVC vinyl sheeting is drawn over the parts.
- Parts enter the thermolaminator.
- The thermolaminator uses heat, vacuum, and positive membrane pressure to adhere vinyl to the part.
- Excess vinyl is trimmed off the finished part.
Membrane pressed parts and components we have pressed include: casework, over-bed trays, cabinet doors, bedroom furniture, sculpted wall panels, table tops, and more.

Laser Engraving and Laser Cutting
The process can be as simple as taking your artwork and printing it to the laser using our custom printer driver. Two-dimensional laser engraving can be effectively achieved at full speed on our laser systems. The resolution used to laser engrave will determine the quality of the finished artwork. Typically the Kern Laser Engravers use 300 – 600.
Our updated equipment will quickly process mdf, wood, plastics, leather, acrylic, light metal and more.
