Dubois Equipment has been a leader in the wood finishing industry for over 50 years and has been the primary producer of complete flat line finishing systems for prefinished wood flooring for the past 25 years. Our flat line finishing systems include scuff sanders, stain application roll coaters, reverse fill roll coaters, differential roll coaters, stain wipe units, high velocity gas fired ovens, ir ovens, uv ovens, cooling tunnels, and conveyors.
Dubois Equipment made our first UV application and UV curing equipment in 1969. Since then Dubois has been issued four patents for UV finishing machines. Dubois was a finalist for the Challenger’s Award in 2004 for our Mist Coater, which revolutionized the spray of 100% solids UV coating for 3D parts. Dubois was a Challenger’s Award winner at the 2006 IWF show for our 3D UV Oven, which allowed for both even dose and peak intensity on all surfaces of a 3D part.
In December 2008, Dubois Equipment acquired Advanced Equipment (AES) Systems of Chico CA. AES specializes in coating application and curing systems for waterbased and solvent based coatings. Some of the machines included in these systems are linear, rotary and reciprocating spray, linear and lateral curing ovens, and vacuum coating equipment.
Dubois has a complete line of custom edge wood finishing systems that have been provided to the cabinet, furniture, and door industries for over 30 years. The Dubois system of manufacturing allows us to economically provide equipment to meet your specific needs (line height, hand, conveyor width, conveyor length, color, line speed, automation level).
