Abstract (en)

A process for forming MDF/chipboard furniture panels provided with an embedded handle, characterised by: - forming in the exposed surface of the panel a substantially parallelepiped first cavity (4) having dimensions greater than the handle dimensions, - inserting a block (6) into said first cavity (4), - applying an HDF cover (8) to said surface, - subjecting the cover and part of the block to pantograph-milling to define a substantially parallelepiped second cavity (10) of smaller dimensions than the first cavity (4), - applying a cladding sheet (12) of polymer material to the panel surface and to the interior of said second cavity (10) by thermoforming, - performing a pantograph-milling operation to remove the cladding sheet (12) covering the base and the sides of the cavity to form the handle grips.
