Uniply manufactures products, that meet all stringent environmental norms. Which is why we use low-emission E1 Grade resin to ensure that our products are the safest for people and the planet. Every sheet of plywood goes through rigorous quality check before being shipped to the market. After all, we at Uniply take pride in offering our consumers superior quality products, while keeping in mind the ‘value for money’ quotient.
Inspection Of Logs
Each and every piece of log of class I Durable Hardwood Timber (Dipterocarpus species such as Gurjan & Keruing) is personally inspected for suitability and imported from virgin tropical forests worldwide, and soaked in a pond at the Uniply facility.
Based on requirements, the logs are removed from the pond and cut to size.
This is an unique process of Uniply. The cut logs are cooked for 12 hours at a temperature of 60-80 degrees. Cooking is done to remove starch and to kill microscopic organisms.
The cooked log is then peeled to the required uniform thickness by high-speed peeling machines with backup rollers
The veneer is then reeled and taken to the clipper machine.
The clipping machine cuts the veneer to required dimensions.
The dryer reduces the moisture content. Drying is done at a uniform temperature, also destroys microorganisms that may have survived the cooking process.
Un-extended E1 grade and specially formulated resin is manufactured inhouse to ensure quality and consistency.
Gluing & Assembly
Wider-cross core veneer and long panel veneer are layered and glued to give the plywood greater strength and dimensional stability.
This unique process ensures a uniform spread of specially formulated resin and chemicals into each and every layer of plywood. The assembled plywoods are
pressed under high pressure in ambient temperature for sufficient time to ensure stabilization of all layers and to achieve a warp-free strong bonding.
The boards are trimmed horizontally and vertically. A unique technique of pre-cutting is used before the final cutting to ensure dimensional accuracy.
Uniply is the first company in India to introduce fully automatic loading and unloading system at the heavy duty hot press. The plywood from pre-press is
automatically loaded into the hot press for polymerisation. Each board is put through a preset temperature and higher pressure to ensure uniform density and
permanent bonding, resulting in a warp-free sheet.
An imported and fully automatic wide-belt sanding machine performs surface sanding on both sides of the plywood to give it a smooth surface.
A full-fledged R&D lab with the latest equipments and experienced scientists help in ensuring that every batch of resin and plywood is thoroughly tested
for quality and consistency
Each and every plywood is thoroughly inspected for quality bonding and finish before dispatching to various destinations to cater to the needs of end users.
Service Delivery Process Flow
At Uniply, every project is close to our heart. We always keep the clients need as priority and from the design till the sign-off we keep them in the loop. Every step in our process is validated for quality check with our in-house PMC before it is delivered to the client.
For every project, a project team of in-house architects and designers is selected. They consult with the client and develop design layouts, shop drawings of prefabricated components, create 3D views of the plans, finalise the BOQs and the type of material finishes required for the project.
A mock-up, which is a full size prototype of the plan, is developed to assess the model with the appropriate material boards and samples. Final sign off from the client for On-Site execution is obtained in this stage.
Appropriate vendors for the material and project plans are identified and the mobilisation process is set in motion. Health and safety measures at the site are adhered to by setting up necessary safety equipment and obtaining required office materials. Electrical and water supply checks are conducted on the site for smooth execution.
A cross check between the available materials at the site and BOQ is conducted and if any disparity, a material requisition is raised with the purchase department. During the entire execution the work carried out is supervised by eminent and responsible supervisors and weekly reports as well as photo reports are generated on the progress to ensure that the schedule is on track.
We have an in-house PMC to always keep a check on quality at every step. The Architects and PMC meet from time to time and analyse the weekly and photo reports to identify deviations if any and take appropriate rectification action.
Personnel for defect liability period are identified. Any balance material is listed and disposed of in an appropriate manner. An On-site meeting is held with the client and all the Keys of Storage, Cabins etc. and Documents like the Key Plan, Drawings, Manuals, Site Photographs etc. are handed over. A completion certificate is obtained from the client along with his feedback and a project completion report is issued by the team.
Defects Liability Period
The contact details of the personnel identified for the defects liability period is socialised. The time line for the DLP is set and maintenance work during the period is carried out as per agreement.
Once the DLP period comes to an end, a Sign-Off is obtained from the client and the project is termed to be complete.
