Advanced Technology for Precise Wood and Laminate Components

Posted on: June 14, 2023


Cooper Enterprises has the most advanced technology and machinery, which allows us to produce high-quality wood and laminate products for our contract manufacturing partners.

We offer vast experience producing durable, attractive woodwork and laminate components and assemblies for both residential and commercial markets. We combine true craftsmanship with the best technology available.

Why contract manufacturing?

There are many benefits of contract manufacturing. By working with a contract partner like Cooper Enterprises, you have access to our expertise, and you don’t need to make large capital investments in machinery.

We produce the products you need, so you can expand into different markets without added equipment or labor. Cooper Enterprises has everything necessary to help you meet demand. You can focus on sales and business growth.

You can turn to Cooper Enterprises for wood and laminate products, such as cabinet drawers and door fronts, closet systems, store fixtures and point-of-purchase, commercial casework, office furniture, components and OEM, recreational products, laminated panels, ceiling tiles and wall panels, corporate gifts and safety products.

CNC Machining

CNC machining is our specialty. We have nine CNC machines with two-, four- and six-head router configurations that can machine up to 20-foot panels. Many companies only have a one-head router option, so we can be extremely productive with dual tables that run continuously. Our routing machines easily handle high-volume orders, so you get cost savings from running multiple parts at one time.

We have the ability to cut sizes up to 5’ x 12’ with book heights up to 5”.

Our newest CNC router has dual seven-foot and 10-foot tables with four independent routing heads with a C-axis and 12-position tool changers.

Nest Routing

We also offer nest routing for optimal material usage. Our Vantech Nesting Router can auto-feed up to 5’ x 12’ material, nest route the parts and push them onto a conveyor without operator intervention.

Straight-Line and Contour Edgebanding

We have two straight-line edge banders with auto-return systems. Our contour edge bander can apply edge banding to contour shapes and trim the edging flush in one operation. We can handle up to three-millimeter-thick PVC, HPL and veneer edging to match the surface of the panels. T-molding is another option we offer for an edge treatment.

Laminating Services

Our laminating services include both cold-press and hot-melt systems. These options allow lamination of both wood-based panels and non-porous materials.  

Our cold-press lamination system can laminate up to 5’ x 12’ wood-based panels to create high-pressure laminates and wood veneer.

Our hot-melt lamination system allows us to laminate non-porous and non-traditional materials, including vinyl, aluminum, plastics, acrylics and steel. There are many advantages to hot melt lamination over traditional spray lamination. The hot melt system provides higher volume of panels in a shorter period of time.

Cooper Enterprises can laminate:

  • High-pressure laminate
  • Vinyl
  • Aluminum
  • Plastic
  • Wood veneer
  • Leather


Another benefit Cooper Enterprises offers is miter-folding fabrication. Miter-folding is popular in store fixtures and P.O.P. It provides clean edging and eliminates post laminating. It also reduces the cost of production.

We miter-fold the following materials:

  • High-pressure laminate
  • Solid surface
  • Melamine on MDF core
  • Vinyl
  • Aluminum on substrates
  • Plastics
  • Wood veneer
  • Natural wood

Assembly Services and Warehousing

In addition to the latest technology to produce wood and laminate products, Cooper Enterprises offers comprehensive assembly services and warehousing and order fulfillment

Whether it’s ready-to-assemble or a full turnkey package that you need, we have the experience to provide it.
