Bend the rules
Compression machines for hardwood open up for a world of opportunities in the wood- and furniture industry. Compressed wood tolerates extreme modifications in shape and can be bent in all directions. This is a unique feature that adds new opportunities to work with design and aesthetics.
The last 30 years have innovative architects, furniture designers, artisans and instrument makers seen the possibilities in the technology which have leads to outstanding designs and solutions.
Compression of tree is a hydraulic and mechanical process making it possible to bend and mould tree without use of chemicals and glue. That is a benefit for both the environment and for those people who work with the process.
Compression machines give a row of economical advantages. The process requires either valuable aluminium moulds or large compression systems. Add to that less waste of material and less cost to subsequent processing and you have a very cost-effective investment. Actually the return on investment often will be within a year.
We have bent the rules since 1988
Bending of wood has been known since the antiquity. At that time they use steam that demands extensive craftsman expertise and massive resources. Through many years people have tried to invent better methods for industrial bending of wood. Not until 1988 the crucial breakthrough came when DTI/Wood technique presented the first prototype of a compression machine.
Danish Technological Institute has take out a patent of the machine and it is this technology Compwood is based upon.
